Choose to be a Warrior
June 12, 2023
Have you ever read a story about a warrior who showed great valor as he slayed the massive dreadful dragon. Or maybe you heard of someone that showed gallant bravery and was amazingly courageous as they fought for their country. Just like in times past there are mighty men and women in our world today that show valor, strength and bravery in their everyday life. Gideon was one of those men. In the book of Judges you can read about Gideon, who like most of us had fears and doubts, and he did not see himself the way God saw him. If the angel that came to Gideon, had told him that he would defeat a 135,000 person army with just 300 men, Gideon, probably would have had an impossible time believing that the message was from God. Yet, Gideon asked God for help and God led Gideon step by step to defeat the enemy. In the mighty hands of God, Gideon had become a mighty man of valor.
All of us face battles in our lives, the good news is that our Lord is with us through them. There are dangers in this world we face everyday, yet we can choose to do what is right and good to help others. How exciting it is to think we can be the mighty men and women that God will use to accomplish His purposes on this earth. He will use even the smallest of people to do amazing things and take us through many challenging journeys. When you know what you are fighting for and who fights beside you, your life will be full of adventures and stories to tell others of God’s glory.
