What You Have is Enough

Gideon was less likely to be chosen a warrior. He came from the weakest clan from the tribe of Manasseh and is the weakest member of his family (as he said). His claim will make you overlook him for how can you trust someone who doesn’t even trust himself?

But God saw Gideon with His eyes and not Gideon’s eyes. God saw him as a might warrior and a deliverer. He knew that despite the lack of confidence and self-worth, Gideon will be able because God himself will enable.

When God sends us to do something, we often quarrel with Him and we argue that we are not good enough, able, or as good as anyone else. But like how He saw Gideon, He sees us with what we have. I love what verse 14 of the 6th chapter of Judges says,

Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!

God doesn’t demand anything from you apart from what you already have at the moment. The very instance He calls you, He knows that what you have is enough to win the battle.
