The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valor
“And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valor.” Judges 6:12 (KJV)
God is assuring You today like HE told Gideon that in spite of the circumstance around you today that you are destined for greatness.
Facts you can see today may not line up with what your purpose in life may be.
Don’t Give up.
Gideon was timid and hiding in the farmhouse to secretly press the wine out of the grapes because of the fear of the Midianites who were terrorizing Israel then.
He was very very disadvantaged, but God still used him and achieved God’s purpose for his life.
Whatsoever God has ordained You to be before the foundations of the world are still attainable as long as you choose to believe God and walk in His ways.
Gideon had to change his perceptions of God and speak the language of faith and love of God, and he was transformed from the hiding farmer to a victorious war leader and ruler in Israel.
“Though the fig tree does not blossom, and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!” Habakkuk 3:17-18 (AMPC)
Joseph kept the dreams he initially had in his hearts throughout his travails, and eventually, all the dreams were fulfilled verbatim.
Keep confessing what God has told you about yourself regardless off the facts around you today.
It may look foolish and shameful, but that’s the way faith works.
The more you see and say what God has said about you the faster the fulfillment of His promises to you.
The goal of satan is to make you give up on yourself and see yourself as unworthy of God’s grace or his old age trick of convincing you that God does not really care about you and that’s why you are going through all these ordeals.
Reject all the lies of the enemy about you entirely and be on God’s side concerning yourself.
Yes, take side with God in this battle of your purposeful life.
Be on the Lords’ side by seeing yourself as God sees you.
The Lord is with You, you mighty man/ woman of [fearless] courage.
