Well Informed Faith - God Is Moving'

"But Lord," Gideon replied, "how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!" Judges 6: 15 (NLT)

 

Yet by the time God was done with him, he was a mighty warrior and the armies of Midian were defeated by God and the 300 soldiers in Gideon's army! That is what God can do through a yielded vessel. But it starts with believing He will see you through what He has called you to. He does not call the equipped He equips the called!

 

Likewise David had to decide early on in his life who he was going to believe in God or himself. The runt of the litter in his family David is actually sent to the front lines of battle not to fight, but to deliver cheese to his fighting brothers. What he finds is all of the fighting men of Israel cowering in fear of Goliath, the nine foot Philistine champion. He quickly says that he will go and fight Goliath. Here was the response from the natural world:

 

"Don't be ridiculous!" Saul replied. "There's no way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win! You're only a boy, and he's been a man of war since his youth." 1Samuel 17: 33 (NLT)

 

And that's the king talking to him! In the natural, there is no way David can best Goliath. But David had a revelation of who God was and it did not matter how big the problem was in front of him he knew his God was bigger:

But David persisted. "I have been taking care of my father's sheep and goats," he said. "When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death. I have done this to both lions and bears, and I'll do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! The L ord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!" 1Samuel 17: 34-37 (NLT)

 

You may say that there is a difference between a bear and Goliath but to God there is no difference. We need to stop thinking through our mortal eyes and start believing in our eternal faith. When the three Hebrew boys were going to be thrown into the fiery furnace, heated seven times hotter than usual just for them, they did not rest upon what they saw or felt. They reflected to what they believed:

 

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn't, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up." Daniel 3: 16-18 (NLT)
