good word

Jonathan Herron had a great post today.
Here it is

Feel like Gideon

It’s easy to feel like Gideon.

Called by God but afraid to move forward confidently.

Hiding in the winepress, waiting until night out of fear, even testing God.

This isn’t decisive faith, it’s paralyzing inaction.
Stop testing God and start trusting God.

He gives Gideon (and us) the words that overcome all fears:
“The LORD is with you, O mighty man of valor.”

Another translation puts it this way:
“Mighty hero, the LORD is with you.”

Own that truth in your calling.
Post those words on your bathroom mirror.
Move forward in confident obedience.
