Once upon a time, a young man who didn’t see any possibility of being strong enough to fight, threshed wheat in a winepress to hide it from the enemy.
While he was busy trying to get the wheat in a safe place, he saw a man under a tree close to where he threshed and the sight made him quiver. He thought he was an enemy and this made him scared the more.
“How on earth will I fight this man if he happens to be an enemy and if I should let him leave with this wheat, my family will die of hunger.” Those were his thoughts when the man called Gideon and told him how mighty he is.
Those words of mightiness made Gideon chuckle and he talked about his weakness and how lowly he thought himself and his family to be. Little did he know he was speaking with an Angel.
The final assuring phrase from the Angel woke up the strength in him.
For the first time in his whole life he knew he was greater than the physical weak muscle. With this grace, he became bold and what seems like a challenge became a child’s play to him and by this weakling the enemies of a whole nation was stayed.
God is so great that He can use anything and anyone to bring forth His Praise. It doesn’t matter how weak, hidden, cast out or little you are, He can use you for His glory. He can bring you from that low estate and set you above those you once looked up to for help. That is how wonderful His grace is when it speaks for you..
Grace can speak for you and bring you out even in the deepest pit.
Are you going through a tough time and you think God has forgotten you? All He said seems to be a lie ’cause you have waited for eons and you don’t see it coming?
Just wait on Him. Don’t give up yet!
He knows how to confront the mighty things of this world with base things and the all wise challenge is nothing but foolishness to Him.
He loves you and He cares! If it wasn’t for His glory, He wouldn’t permit that challenge.
You are greater than you ever imagined and your miracle is closer than you think.
Always see possibilities in every impossibility and strength in every weakness!
