Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Our Strength Is in Our Weakness”
Text: Judges 7:2
“And the LORD said to Gideon, “The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’”
The Principle that “Our Strength is in Our Weakness” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God told Gideon that his army was too big, and needed to be tested and proven “fit for the fight.”
Fear disqualified 22,000 of the 32,000 men, and lack of self-discipline disqualified another 9,700 men; leaving 300 men who were Fit To Fight!
Israel’s Strength was to be displayed in their Weakness of a small number of men. Think about these odds: 135,000 Midianites and 300 Warriors of Israel!
God likes these odds because He is glorified in the Victory by our weakness.
Paul understood this Truth that in his own weakness in the Flesh God’s Power was Fully Displayed for all to see!
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”(2Corin.12:9-10).
Listen up Warrior! You and I must be free from Fear of our defeated enemy! We must be spiritually disciplined in prayer, a daily diet of the Word of God, and actively deploying the Word of God in Combat on the Battlefield of Faith!
We Must Be Fit For The Fight AT ALL TIMES! Oooooh Rah!
Our Strength is Found in our Weakness: we wear a “dirt suit” as a vessel of clay.
Yet in this common dirt suit is the Treasure and Awesome Power of Almighty God, Yahweh! (2Corin.4:6-7).
When we go into Battle against impossible odds of wickedness, we sound the Trumpet of the Gospel and God’s Holy Word - we “break the pitchers” of our weak earthen vessels, laying down our surrendered life -
And the LIGHT and Power of Yahweh Bursts Forth from our broken vessel -
And our enemies self-destruct; they kill each other!
And Only God Is Glorified In All This! Oooooh Rah!
This is what happened with Gideon and his 300 men. This is what happens with You and I as God’s Warrior!
Because Our Strength Is In Our Weakness!
Hear this Warrior!
Be Strong in the LORD and In The Power Of HIS Might! (Eph.6:10).
Warrior at your side,
