00654 - Books Of The Bible : Judges

In the tumult and trials in the Book of Judges, we find a recurring theme of redemption and faith. One particularly inspiring scripture is Judges 6:12 (TLB), where the angel of the Lord appears to Gideon and says, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!” Despite Gideon’s self-doubt and the Israelites' dire circumstances, this declaration heralds a call to faith and action. It serves as a reminder that, regardless of our perceived inadequacies, God chooses and strengthens us to face the challenges we have.

It underscores the importance of stepping out in faith, bolstered by the assurance that God is with us, transforming our fears into fortitude.

By acknowledging that we are God’s chosen instruments, we can navigate life's challenges, inspired by the knowledge that we are never alone. Trust in God’s plan and act with the conviction that we can overcome any obstacle with God by our side.


There is nothing better than knowing God is with you.


Lord, thank You for your ongoing love and support of me. Amen.
