Why? Where? How?

Gideon was filled with questions. God had called him to deliver Israel from the Midianites, but he was skeptical, seeing nothing but obstacles and problems. He thought of himself as weak, insignificant, and incapable.

But God saw Gideon as a “mighty man of courage” (v. 12). Even after hearing how the Lord viewed him, Gideon still couldn’t imagine success or victory. Finally, when he stopped arguing and complaining (and started believing, obeying, and acting in faith), God transformed him into a mighty warrior.

What God wanted from Gideon is what He wants from each of us: to trust Him and believe His plan for us; to be willing to do whatever He wants us to do; to move forward in faith, believing Him for the results; to be confident in Him, even when we know our own weaknesses; and to cast off discouragement, believing His Word!

Today, remember that God has a call on your life. He is with you and promises never to leave or forsake you. With Him at your side, there is no reason to be discouraged, afraid, or worried. You don’t have to be concerned about the size of the adversaries you face or the tasks you’re called to do.

Right now, renew your commitment to obey God. Believe Him for favor and success. Allow Him to remove your fears. Move forward boldly. Don’t give excuses, but confess His Word and believe His promises. He loves you, and He has a glorious plan for your life. Trust your steps, and the outcome, to Him.
