Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Judges 6 )
“Failure is an Event, Not a Destination”
Text: Judges 6:1
“Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian for seven years,”.
This Principle of Life: “Failure is an Event, Not a Destination,” is on our menu this morning. This is a Core Principle for Warriors to keep in mind. We are all going to fail sometimes; but failure is an Event to Repent of and to Learn from, growing more wise as a disciplined Warrior!
Gideon and Israel disobeyed God and they treated this failure as a Destination - for Seven Years! They surrendered to a disobedient lifestyle.
Our Commander Himself interrupted this tragedy and reminded Gideon that this failure was an Event and Midianites were designed to teach them the rewards of disobedience, and bring them to Repentance.
Listen up Warrior! Don’t put up with the past failures that you have repented of and paid dearly for - Learn and apply the lessons learned from it, and move on in greater wisdom.
Too often we let the enemy “rent space in our mind,” accusing us of past Events of sin that have been confessed and forgiven years ago! Tell that liar he has no evidence, because Jesus “cleansed us from all unrighteousness,” He removed the evidence of sin! “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1John 1:9).
Sin hindered Israel needlessly for 7 years because they saw it as a Destination and refused to confess and repent of it.
God chose Gideon to be a leader, a true Warrior of God and be an example of Confession and Repentance to his nation by destroying his father’s idol, and offering a burnt offering for sin with the wooden idol and his father’s bull. Gideon showed his countrymen that sin was an Event not a Destination.
All it takes to change a family, a school classroom, a workplace, a city or a nation, is one Warrior Queen like Deborah or One Warrior King like Gideon to rise up with God’s Power and Presence with them. Are you that Warrior?
Be that Warrior today and change this world with your life - Because God is with You, Oh mighty Warrior of God! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
