An Angel’s Greeting

17 Aug

An Angel’s Greeting…

Suddenly, a malakh, a messenger, an angel of the Lord appears to a young man named Gideon and says to him, “Gideon, you valiant one.” Now Gideon doesn’t feel very valiant.

He’s living in fear and oppression, just like the rest of them. He hasn’t done anything worthy of being called valiant. Yet the story of Gideon, of victory and breakthrough, begins with the words, “Gideon, you valiant one…”

You too may be living a life that isn’t one of victory. Victory begins with faith in God to make you victorious. Your victory begins when you believe God’s Word and God’s power concerning you and your life.

The victory begins when you stop looking at your problem and you start looking at the power of God to change, transform, and empower you to overcome the problem.

You may not be a Gideon, someone whose name means ‘warrior.’ You don’t have to be. The Word of God says that you are better than that. In fact, you are ‘more than a conqueror.’

Work on believing that, and you, by the power of God, will overcome. You… you valiant one!

The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior. Judges 6:11-12

Believe God for the victory that you will receive today as you look to Him in faith.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
