“And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour” (Judges 6:12).Text — Judges 6:11-24
So many Christian youths live in ignorance of the reality of what God has purposed and prepared them to be. This is basically because their lives’ experiences, societal acceptance and personal challenges do not seem to be in line with God’s promises. That was the case with Gideon and Israel. The situations around them did not look like God was in any way for him and his people. They could not resist the enemies that came to plunder the fruits of their labour, rather, they ate their fruits in fear and in secret. They felt God had forgotten them.
However, God’s Word is ever valid, times and situations notwithstanding. God’s word says: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee…” (Isaiah 43:2). For Gideon, it took faith in God’s promises, obedience at every step, courage, and consistent communion with God to see the manifestation of God’s wonder. God has not changed. The same God is alive today to give you the needed victory in your peculiar challenge. Cheer up!
God has not changed
