Gideon VS Me
As I prepare to engage some children with an activity for a missions project, I realized just how closely related I am to our friend Gideon. The profile in my bible gives a description of his weaknesses and I said "Hmmm sounds like me". He feared that his own limitations would prevent God from working. Boy, do I fear these things too. I pray Lord that you will take these fears of my weaknesses away. I want to do your work and establish a deep relationship with you offering my testimonies to all that will hear. I pray that I learn from the lessons of Gideon. He was apart of the weakest clan and the least of the weakest, but yet you used him to defeat the undefeatable. I am weak, but in you I am strong. Ring this truth into my spirit and crush the enemy with his lies. Do not allow me to make the work of your Compassion and Love into something to worship. All is done in your name and not my own. You have called me in the middle of my obedience and I want to be faithful. You are creating a masterpiece within me and expanding my abilities to further your kingdom. What peace I have to know that you can use me in all my failures and limitations for the good of your people and kingdom. I ask Lord that you protect me from falling easily into sin and allow me to learn quickly to turn my gaze on you, Always. Thank you for allowing me to be your servant. You are my Abba Father and I love you. Thank you, Thank you...In Jesus' Name-Amen.
