God Used the Least!
God used the least!
Gideon was the least in his father’s house. He was also a man scared of the Midianites. He was hiding, threshing wheat when God came to him. God looked at him and called him a mighty man of valor! Gideon was then told that God was going to go with him and use him to deliver Israel from Midian. Gideon couldn’t believe his ears! He told God that he was of a poor family and he was the least in his family! He thought God could never use him because he was the least and no one special at all, yet God looked at Gideon and saw a mighty warrior! Gideon, time and time again, wanted to be sure God was with him. He was afraid of going out to battle on his own. He wasn’t sure he could have victory because he thought he was a nobody! God kept proving, time and time again, to Gideon he was God’s man. You may think God could never use you because you are the least, or poorest or least talented, but God looks at you and sees a mighty a warrior. He see a man or woman of God that could do great things if they just trusted in Him. You see, God doesn’t just see us for who we are. He sees us for who we could be! God wants to use you if you just trust Him! Yes, it may seems scary or difficult what God is asking you to do, but our God is faithful and will go with you! Just trust God and God will prove Himself faithful to you. As you see God prove Himself faithful to you, then on the next step of faith, you can look back and see how faithful God has been and take the next step of faith!
