Topic: Go In This Thy Might [Thursday February 22, 2018]
“And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? Judges 6:14 (KJV)
We are told in the book of Judges that Gideon was so scared of the enemy that he decided to thresh wheat in a wine press. But the moment he received the word in his spirit, he arose from the place of defeat. The man who yesterday was too scared to make a move became the same man who led an army. Gideon heard the word of the Lord, received it in His heart and was ready to stand against the enemy. For too long you have run from the enemy, this is the time to arise and look at the devil eyeball to eyeball.
Do you remember when Jesus asked Peter to come to Him on the sea in Matthew chapter 14? The Bible declares that Peter walked on water. Peter, a mortal man walked on water! How does that grab you? Do you realise that you too can do the impossible? I have come to challenge you to arise from your comfort zone and go in this thy might. The world out there is waiting for you. You have been empowered. Now is the time to go out and shine. The days of chickening out are over in your life. Go, shine as light and take your world by storm, for your light has come and the glory of God has risen upon you.
You will not be put to shame. Where you have hitherto failed, you will succeed. I want you to rise with a knowing that the world out there will bow to you. Your expectation will not be denied. You will not labour in vain nor bring forth for trouble. The Lord will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon you. He will give you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. The Lord of Hosts has promised and His word will come through for you.
