“Then the Lord turned to him and said, Go with the strength you have
and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” Judges
There is a special mission that God is sending you now and that is
exactly why you are coming in contact with this message at this
particular time. God is the creator and ultimate controller of the
universe. He made everything and manipulates all creation and events
to suit His will and purposes. Nothing happens without His consent.
True! Now, when He decides to intervene in any situation, His
decisions are always final. And as you are reading this, there is a
divine purpose that He is sending you to achieve now. It might look
impossible, crazy, unachievable, but God is saying to you today that
you must immediately begin to go after that assignment. With Him
nothing, I repeat nothing shall ever be impossible. Arise, for it is
At the time of Gideon, Israel was in a terrible mess. They were in
bondage. They were held captive by the very cruel Midianites for seven
years. During this period, Israelites would plant their crops and the
marauders from Midian and their evil allies would arrive in droves
targeting and attacking the land during harvest. They would camp
around Israel and make sure that nothing is left of their crops,
sheep, oxen, donkeys, etc. They would take all and even destroy the
left over. Israel would only run away and hide in the mountains and
caves. Intimidated, starving, humiliated, weeping, suffering, dejected
confused and bruised, the Israelite would cry, endure their losses and
nurse their wounds, hoping that the following year will be better but
were also disappointed. This went on for good seven years!
Maybe, the above situation best describes your situation or the
situation of your family, people or somebody you know. You plant and
others reap. You sow and the enemy scatters. You toil and see no
positive results. You have been bruised, intimidated and humiliated.
You are even contemplating suicide; tired of this living in this
wicked world. You have struggled with life, business, and enemies
(visible and invisible) for so long. Now, hear the word of God, “This
is your time for freedom!” As you read this message, the process of
your deliverance will automatically commence in the mighty name of
Jesus Christ! We will continue next week.
