Capable through Christ

Gideon could not believe that God was calling him to deliver Israel. Looking at his life, he seemed completely unqualified. He did not feel he had the right training, resources, or experience. But God wanted him to realize that the key was obeying Him and trusting in Him. He promised to do the rest.

Many Christians fail to fulfill their God-given calling because they feel inadequate or afraid. They just look to themselves, not to God. Others feel that the challenges they face are too great, or that the opposition is too strong. Some give up because the path seems unclear, and they are not sure what to do.

The Bible urges us to realize that we serve the same God who enabled Gideon to do great things. Gideon may have been the least in his family and the youngest in his father’s house, but when he was obedient and faithful, God was able to do great things through him. If God could do great things through Gideon, He can work through anyone – through you!

How are you reacting to your problems and the things you are called to do? Do you feel you are being asked to do the impossible? Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Do you have doubts or questions? These are moments to renew your faith in God and believe that He will give you everything you need. Call on Him. Have faith. Trust in Him.
