    Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, "This man, if he were a prophet, would have perceived who and what kind of woman this is who touches him, that she is a sinner." Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." He said, "Teacher, say on." "A certain len...

The Mighty Warrior

  • Yahweh's angel came and sat under the oak which was in Ophrah, that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite. His son Gideon was beating out wheat in the wine press, to hide it from the Midianites. Yahweh's angel appeared to him, and said to him, "Yahweh is with you, you mighty man of valor!" Judges 6:11-12 WEB.

    Dust and chaff drifted through the air as Gideon threshed the wheat. He was hiding inside a winepress so the Midianite raiders would not see it and take away the little they had left. Each time the wheat harvest ripened, armed raiders from Midian descended on Israel to take it all away.

    When threshing wheat, they would toss it up into the air with a rake. Then the wind would blow away the lightweight chaff while the heavier wheat settled to the ground. Inside the winepress, the surrounding walls would have prevented the wind from blowing. So separating the wheat from the chaff would have been very difficult. With no breeze at all, the work was dirty, dusty, and hot.

    While Gideon was threshing the wheat, the angel of the Lord appeared to him and called him a powerful warrior, a mighty man of valor. In reality, Gideon was the least in his family, who was the least in their tribe. Gideon was the least of the least and hiding from the enemy.

    Yet, the Lord saw something inside of Gideon that even Gideon did not know was there. There was more to Gideon than the eye could see on the surface. God used Gideon and three hundred men to defeat thousands of Midianites simply because Gideon believed and obeyed God. Though he was scared, he did what the Lord told him one step at a time, and he won the battle. Gideon went from a zero to a hero. From hiding from the enemy to defeating and looting their entire army.

    God knows what He put inside of you, and you are well able to do what He calls you to do. If you can follow basic instructions, you will be successful in what He sends you to do. Even if you are the least of the least, the smallest of the small, God still has a plan for you, and He will enable you to complete it. The Lord sees something in you that no one else does. If you will spend some time alone with Him and get in tune with what He is doing, then He will take your life to a new level. He will turn the least of us into a mighty spiritual warrior.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for equipping me with all I need to do my part here. I choose to trust You even when I feel underqualified. When I don't belong and feel like I am not the one who should be doing this. I know that if You bring me to it, You will get me through it. I am holding on to You today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

David Krull Amen. Thank you Father for every time in my life when You got me thru situations safely. From working as a police officer facing harm, to every dumb mistake I have made in life and there has been many. Thank you for Your angels that protect me. Thank You for the Full Armor of God. Thank you for Your Holy Spirit which has guided me. Forgive me for the times I have done things on my own. I’m old now and can’t do much for you Father. But my heart is willing... through my constant pain and suffering I praise You Lord. Open my spiritual eyes and ears to see and hear Your will for my life now that I’m at a crossroad. Forgive my sins and heal my pain Father so I can serve you again. I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me. Not by my might or power because I’m powerless over my circumstances...but By Your Spirit... In Jesus Name...Amen.

Thank you once again for a powerful devotion Pastor Dion! We have all felt small and worthless at one time or another I think. I know I certainly have many times. God has picked me up off the ground and showed me that I am special to Him, and He made me for a purpose. It is not always easy for us to find out what God's purpose and will are for us but we keep working on it little by little and God will reveal His truths to us as we need them. God is so good, Bless His holy name!!
