God has already designed a plan and a mission for your life.

In the divine chronicle of our lives, there are moments when God calls us, prepares us, and bestows upon us a divine mission, just as He did with Gideon. At first glance, it may seem that our circumstances and fears could thwart God’s divine plan. This uncertainty and fear are not foreign to us. Like Gideon, there are times when we too are in a state of fear and hiding, yet God comes to us in our struggles. As it is written in Judges 6:12, “When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, ‘The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.'”

There was a time when I was 12, and I had lost my parents. I was caught in the throes of grief and despair, and then I heard God speak words of life over me. He reminded me that He was my heavenly Father, promising to protect and care for me. He said, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.” (Psalm 68:5) This divine revelation transformed my life, and His words became a reality.

The very same God who cared for me, loves and cherishes you. He wants to breathe the same truth over you, reminding you that you are a mighty warrior, called for a divine purpose. He is with you, just like He was with Gideon.

Like Gideon, we might question our capabilities and doubt our strengths, but the essence of our faith lies in understanding that it doesn’t change the truth that God has for us. God has already designed a plan and a mission for your life. You must believe it. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Are you willing to be courageous and respond to your divine calling? It is your decision to believe and accept it. You have been called, and God has a vision of who you could be. Will you choose to embrace it?

There are times when we question God’s plan, just like Gideon did in Judges 6:13. He questioned God’s presence in his trials, saying, “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”

But God remains faithful. He has a divine plan for each of us, and He desires for us to fulfill it. He has chosen us to be His ambassadors and to be the righteousness of Christ. As Ephesians 1:3-5 says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love, He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.”

No matter what doubts we have or what fears we face, the truth remains: God’s “but” is bigger than ours. Despite our endless list of excuses, God reassures us with His divine promise. “But I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.” (Judges 6:16). Are you ready Church?
