Who, Me?


When God’s people were in a desperate situation and cried out to God, who did God send? A man who considered himself the least in the weakest family in his tribe. Gideon. Least: smallest, perhaps youngest, of least value. In his eyes. But not in  God’s eyes:

The Lord is with you, mighty warrior … Go in the strength you have … Am I not sending you? (Judges 6)

L’Eternel est avec toi, vaillant héros! … Va avec la force que tu as … N’est-ce pas moi qui t’envoie? (Juges 6)

Who, me? Are you kidding, God? No, He isn’t. “Go in the strength you have” says God, His strength, not ours. “But God, I’m just…” No, in God’s eyes we are each His mighty warrior, if we trust in His strength.
