Dear God-tracker


The impoverished Israelites called out to God when they were under suppression by the Midianites. Every harvest time the Midianites would ransack their land and plunder their crops. It became so intense that God's people began threshing their grain in winepresses to hide it from their enemy. The Lord responded by sending an angel to a young man called, Gideon. "The LORD is with you, mighty warrior," said the angel. He then went on to explain how God had called Gideon to deliver his people from the hand of the Midianites. Flabbergasted, young Gideon might have said, "Dear Lord, I think you've got the wrong man. A warrior? Me? No way!" The Bible says he asked, "How can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family." But through the angel the Lord answered Gideon, "I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together."

You may feel that you're the least in your family or community. You may think you're uneducated, untalented and unqualified to serve the Lord. You may find yourself today hiding in the shadows as Gideon hid in a winepress, because you're afraid of what the future might hold. If that's you then let me encourage you with the words that the angel used to encourage Gideon. The Lord says, "I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together."

Just as young timid Gideon rose to defeat the Midianites and become one of the greatest judges at this time in Israel's history, so the Lord your God is raising you up to serve him, at this time in your life. He may not be calling you to the mission field or to pastor a church or defeat an army, but the Lord is calling you to go and share your life with others. You have a mighty story to tell of how the Lord has healed and delivered you. You have good news to share about the new life you have found in Jesus. The Lord has done wonderful works in your life that will only bless and encourage others to rise to the challenge of what God is calling them to me. So, don't hold back! Step out in faith and courage to make the most of every opportunity that the Lord is bringing your way, today. God is turning you into a mighty warrior and he is with you in this fight!

"Jesus does not choose us because of what we are but because of what he makes us." --- Reinard Bonke

Don't Give Up, Look Up!
Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus!

Thank you that you will always be with me and that you will empower me to do what you have called me to do

"Dear Lord, I admit that I feel a little like Gideon. I still think that I don't have what it takes to rise to the challenge to do your work. Yet, I realise now that it's not what I've got that matters; it's what you make of me that does. So, I submit to your calling today and step out in faith to be a warrior for God. Thank you that you will always be with me and that you will empower me to do what you have called me to do. In you, dear Lord, I can do all things. Take my life and let it be consecrated to you. Amen."
