IF YOUR FAITH SAY YES, GOD WILL NOT SAY NO.

The Lord is with you, mighty warrior. (Judges 6:12b) 
For when I am weak, then I am strong.  (2 Corinthians 12:10b)

Gideon

Gideon a mighty warrior? When you read Judges, the opposite seems to be the case. Gideon was a timid, disappointed Israelite. Yet, God called him a mighty warrior.

Was God being cynical? No, God is never sarcastic. God did not see what Gideon was, but what he could become. God sees us in a different way than we view ourselves. God chooses the weak to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27). He can turn a weak and frightened Gideon into a hero and leader.

Don’t look upon yourself in a negative way. “I can’t do anything, I am a nobody. I have nothing to offer.”  Whoever dares to answer “Yes” when God calls, will be anointed by Him.

For the weak are strong. For the weak can count on God’s help. And will receive it. Even today.
