The Sword Of Gideon

7 May

The Sword Of Gideon…

Gideon’s army went to war with ram’s horns and clay pitchers with burning torches inside. As they advanced, they smashed the pitchers revealing the blazing fire.

2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “We have this treasure in earthen vessels…” Earthen vessels is referring to our body, our physical being. It’s like the clay pitcher.

If you are born again, inside of you is the treasure: the presence or Spirit of God – that’s the fire. So what did Gideon’s army have to do to release that power? They had to smash their clay vessels.

So with you too. Do you want to be victorious and see the power of God manifested in your life? Let your flesh (the old self) be broken through. Let the power of sin be crushed.

Let your ego be broken down, so that people won’t see the outer man any more, but the inner man that contains the Spirit of God; the fire, the blazing torch.

For if we smash that earthen vessel, then the fire of the Spirit will reign and the great miracle and your victory will come – just as it did for Gideon’s army.

For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 2 Corinthians 4:11

Today, let the old self, the old nature, the old ego, be broken, so that the light and power of God can shine through.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
