God determines The path

Judges 6: 14-16:

14 Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!”
15 “But Lord,” Gideon replied, “how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!”
16 The Lord said to him, “I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man.”

 

Do not be afraid:

If you read the above paragraph you will notice that Gideon did not believe in himself.  God instructed him to rescue Israel, but he questioned God’s will, saying that his the weakest man of a weak clan… How often do we question God’s will in our lives?  Always thinking that we are not good enough to achieve something?  Well, I believe that God wouldn’t open a door if it was not meant to be open…  We are His children and He does not want any harm to come to us, only achievements and lessons that end up letting us grow into more mature, stronger Christians.

God then told him that he would not be alone on this journey and that God will make it so easy that it would be as if he fought against one man… Our fears and problems are very small to God, there’s nothing we need to worry about if we trust in God to be with us every step of the way.

Resisting the past

We need to resist the desire to settle in the past.  God wants more for us.  Settling in splendor requires not settling.

With all this said, one needs to stay grateful for what you’ve achieved and what you have, this enables you to look forward and not ponder about the past.  If you have sinned and that’s the reason why you are struggling to more forward and grow with God, know that He sent His only Son to die on the cross for all our sins.  The more people started sinning the more abundant God’s grace became.  You are forgiven for sins committed and sins that are yet to be committed.

Know God’s will:

It’s important to spend time asking God to reveal to you what His will is for your life.  If one knows what God wants to do, it becomes easier to focus on it and notice the progress.  No matter who your are, where you come from, what you have done in your past…God created you for a reason, even if it’s for something very small in our eyes, we need to know that it’s part of a bigger plan that God has for His people…

 

Have a blessed evening.  May God’s Armour be over you all Ephesians 6: 11-18
