Men and woman of valour, the trumpet is blowing.

Jdg 6:13 Oh my Lord, if the Lord is with us, then why has all this happened to us? And where are all the miracles which our Fathers told us about saying,”Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?” But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

There are so many saints today who could identify with Gideon. Does it not seem to you that we are surrounded by darkness on every side? Maybe it’s been a long time since you have experienced the presence of God ? Have you ever said in your own heart, just what Gideon said “Where are all the miracles?” Maybe it’s been a long time since you have seen a loved one or anyone for that matter, saved and radically regenerated? After Gideon gets through with his complaints to God, the Lord speaks to him and says “Go in the might of yours and you shall save Israel…….have I not sent you?” (v 14) You see how God refuses to take on board what Gideon has just complained about and again affirms His calling on Gideon’s life? Saints, take heart at this for God has called you. listen to how Gideon replies and see if this reflects your own heart. “How can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manassah and I am the least in my father’s house.” (v15) To which the Lord replies “Surely I will be with you.”

Can you see how the Lord picked the weakest man from the weakest clan? It’s not about the man brothers and sisters, it’s about the God that goes with the man. If God is with us, who can be against us? This truly represents the Remnant believers today. We are the weakest men and women. The reply that Gideon gave to God is the right reply in the right spirit. Without God we are nothing and can do nothing, but by the same token, when God is with us, and He says to Gideon “Surely I will be with you,’ then there is nothing we cannot do. This is the spirit of the genuine saints of God today. They acknowledge their own weaknesses.They have experienced failure and they know what it is like to feel abandoned, this has been a journey and it ends with them knowing their utter helplessness without God being with them.

Yet brothers and sisters I want you to see something. This is the very first thing the Lord says to Gideon in verse 12 “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.” You see that? God sees what Gideon does not. God sees the beginning from the end. He calls Gideon a mighty man of valour even although at this moment he is no such thing. It is not about Gideon’s strength, it is not about your strength, it is about the fact that God is with you and in you. You can do great things for God not because of who you are but because of who He is. I want you to remember who you serve this day. No matter what situation you face today, the God who created the whole universe and set the foundations of the earth and hung the stars in the heavens above is with you. For His will and for His good pleasure God has been working on you and He is faithful to complete that what He has started. God is raising up an end time Gideon’s army and filling its ranks with the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. Genuine saint, you are a man of valour, you are a woman of valour. What qualifies you to be counted in these ranks? God is with you.
