Do you struggle with feelings of worthlessness? Do you feel weak and ineffective? I couldn’t count how many times those feelings have cropped up in my life. But truthfully, they are just that. Feelings. It’s not the truth.
Gideon felt that way. He was weak. He was a nobody, but God chose him to do a big task–to deliver Israel from the oppression of the Midianites.
“Then the Lord turned to him and said, ‘Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?’ ” Judges 6:14
But when God calls you to do something, He gives you the grace and strength to do it.
“I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.” Psalm 71:16
“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24
“Finally, my brethren [sisters], be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” Ephesians 6:10
We don’t need to be weak and feeble. We are every-day women that God wants to use for His glory. Go in His strength and accomplish His purpose for you today!
