No matter how bad things have been over this last little while God wants you to know today that something very good is about to come out of it, and that something is you and others alike rising up in the power and the anointing that came upon Gideon in the bible; and then some! In Judges Ch. 6 Israel was suffering intensely because an evil nation named Midian was plundering them at will and depriving them of their livelihoods and the food they needed to live on. So Israel cried out to God in their suffering and God raised up an unlikely deliverer for them named Gideon. Gideon had become depressed and dejected because of all the evil that was seemingly being allowed to take over and make life nearly impossible for Israel, so he was trying to hide what little food they had in an out of the way place so the enemy could not take it. An angel appeared to him one day and actually called him “Mighty Warrior” at a time when Gideon felt anything but a mighty warrior.JDG 6:13 “But sir,” Gideon replied, “if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our fathers told us about when they said, `Did not the LORD bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian.”
Gideon felt abandoned by God and that God had just given his people over to evil and that He did not care, but that could not have been further from the truth! You see, God was actually using the tough circumstances they were in to change the disobedient hearts of the people as a whole, and to get them to turn to Him in their place of helplessness and inability. God was not afraid to bring tough trials in order to change their hearts, and He’s willing to do that today. So in a nutshell, God raised up Gideon and a small remnant of people who had enough faith to stand with Him to bring deliverance to Israel by following God’s directions in order to get out of it. They chose to trust God and to be obedient to His plan, rather than just complaining and cowering in a corner. And in the end the enemy not only retreated, but they even turned on one another, and a great victory was won that day because they took God at His word when it didn’t make much sense in the natural.JDG 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.” 16 The LORD answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together.”
So no matter how small, weak, weary, or incapable you may feel today, and no matter how much the enemy has tried to get into your head and accuse God, just know that He is calling you today to be His divine answer and deliverer right now! And you may feel more undone and fleshy at this time than you ever have been before, but all God is asking you to do is to believe His word when He gives you fresh orders, and to rise up in the power of His Holy Spirit to defeat the enemy! God has planned to bring a great deliverance for His people and for the entire world we live in through a remnant of people who have been prepared to rise up in the same strength and anointing that came upon Gideon in his darkest hour! All of the Kingdom and your nation is depending upon you right now to answer God’s call, even though everything tells you to just hang back and wait it out. So know this today; an army of last days Gideon’s are about to rise up, and you are one of them!
JDG 6:14 The LORD turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
