This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
Today I have a question for you, is God handing you a bigger pair of shoes?
Sometimes we hear God’s call to move toward greater, but we tune it out because we can’t get past our doubts and fears. This was the case for Gideon, who was chosen by God to defeat the Midianites. Said another way, God was handing Gideon a bigger pair of shoes.
Although Gideon would be victorious in the end, his truest battle was within. He was considered the least among his family members, and his family members were the least among all of the other tribes. It is likely that this mindset of being less than others—and having that mindset reaffirmed day in and day out—caused Gideon to doubt himself.
However, what I have learned is that when we doubt ourselves, we are also doubting the presence of God in our lives. God is not expecting us to handle His assignments perfectly. Instead, he’d rather we step into that assignment trusting that He is working right alongside us.
In Gideon’s case, most of his men died on the battlefield, leaving him with about 300 men to fight against 135,000 Midianites. Imagine that! Three hundred against 135,000; odds of 450 to one. Yet Gideon was still victorious.
God is handing you a bigger pair of shoes. Will you take His hand and step into them? Tune into the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel today and watch a throwback video where I give you a great visual of how close God is to you when you take those bigger shoes from Him. Before you do, remember these words: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you…” Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
