"That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
(2 Corinthians 12:10, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
A man in scripture by the name of Gideon was called by God to lead the people of Israel against an opposing army. But, Gideon didn’t think he was capable.
One day, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Hello Gideon, you mighty man of fearless courage.” I can imagine Gideon was looking around thinking, “Who is He talking to? I am not a mighty man of fearless courage.” Gideon was afraid, intimidated, insecure; just the opposite. But notice, God didn’t call him what he was. God called him what he could become.
Today, know that God sees your potential. He knows what you’re capable of. You may feel weak, but God calls you strong. You may be intimidated, but God calls you confident. You may feel less than, but God calls you well able. Get in agreement with God and start believing what He says about you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, today I receive Your Words of life, strength and encouragement. I choose to see myself the way You see me. I choose to walk in the way that You have prepared for me. Thank You for loving me and filling me with Your joy and peace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
