Day 91

Today’s Reading – Judges Chapters 6-7

The angel of the LORD came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. When the angel of the LORD appeared to Gideon, he said, “The LORD is with you, mighty warrior.”  Judges 6:11-12

2bl9p3z9mtcg961t72p1In order to gain perspective on this passage, you need to know that Gideon was not a big guy.

He was also not the guy you or I would choose to lead an army.

And that is the point!
God can use anybody to accomplish His works – even you or me!

The story of Gideon is one of God again proving the point that with God all things are possible. That which seems impossible in your power and wisdom is simple for God.

You may believe that God is the God who performs miracles in the Bible, but do you believe that same God can do a mighty work through you?

Tomorrow’s Reading – Judges Chapters 8-9

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
