Through our Heavenly Father’s Eyes; He called a man hiding from his enemies in the winepress trying to thrash some wheat in secret, because of fear, a Mighty Man of Valor! Most would call him a coward based on his current actions. Judg 6:12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon , he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”
Judg 6:13 “But sir,” Gideon replied, “if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? He asked about the current conditions of being under the attack by the Midianites, that he was reacting to in fear. Why? Sin had distorted his perspective. Many times we want to ask WHY ME? When we need to know WHOSE WE ARE!
Judg 6:15 “But Lord,” Gideon asked, “how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” He felt inferior, unqualified, unfit, and unable to do what God was declaring over him. IT IS ALL GOD!
God sees us already in our future destiny and declares this over us! This why we cannot walk by feelings or what we see in the natural, but by Faith. God is with you mighty man or woman of faith, even if you don’t feel like you have an ounce of faith right now. God had to really deal with Gideon’s fears and feelings of insecurity!
