Dear Victorious Ones,
I have attached an article about the Midianite spirit - be encouraged, great things are on the horizon.
Go in this your Might,
Day 19 – Gideon, Destiny Revealed!
Go in this Might of Yours
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him, all things consist. - Colossians 1:16 -17
We are gleaning revelation from Judges 6-8. Yesterday we learned that the Israelites because of their disobedience to God’s commands were turned over to their enemies – especially the Midianites and Amalekites. We learned that these 2 spirits still try to derail the children of God from entering their promise land. BUT God has given us the Victory!
God Sent a Prophet
When we cry out the Lord hears and sends help… Judges 6 6Israel cried out to the LORD… 7that the LORD sent a prophet.
The prophet reminded Israel of the Lord’s mighty deliverance from Egypt… 9 I delivered you from the hands of the Egyptians and from the hands of all your oppressors, and dispossessed them before you and gave you their land, 10 and I said to you, "I am the LORD your God; you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live. But you have not obeyed Me.
Angel of the Lord
The Angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon in Judges 6:11 Angel of the LORD came and sat under the Terebinth
tree…(valley where David killed Goliath) which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed
wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites.
Picture this scene: Gideon lives in the valley where Goliath was beheaded, this area had a great legacy of God’s
deliverance and yet Gideon is threshing grain in a winepress to hide from the Midianites.
BUT GOD! Even when we are hiding from our enemies the Lord can find us, call us and speak destiny into our
Gideon’s Destiny Revealed
Judges 6:12-16 12And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!" 13Gideon said to Him, "O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, 'Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?' But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. 14 Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?" 15 So he said to Him, "O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house." 16 And the LORD said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man."
Word of the Lord
Be strong and courageous for I am with you says the Lord. The enemy has opposed you on every side but you have withstood his onslaught. NOW My power is going to be displayed on your behalf! Where sickness has sought to hold you back healing will come. Where poverty has tried to halt your forward movement, provision is being released. Where relational woes have sought to tie your heart in knots, restoration is at hand. Where doubt has crept in your heart, faith is rising! Where unbelief has sought to keep you from your destiny, the Real You is being discovered! Faith, Favor and Finances are coming your way, rejoice for your future is bright!
Open our eyes, Lord!
Open my eyes to see clearly the wonders of your law - Psalms 119:18 (NABRE)
What does the Bible say?
Read: Joshua 1:5-9 & Jeremiah 29:11-14
Action: Set your heart to be courageous! Look again at the Angel of the Lord’s instructions to Gideon. Notice he did not answer Gideon’s questions but instead pointed him to his destiny – so many times we want the Lord to answer all the who, what, when, and how’s related to our destiny. BUT the Lord just says, Go in this your MIGHT…in other words take one step at a time and listen to the instructions of the Spirit moment by moment. You will arrive at your promise land as you obey the still small voice of the Lord.
Decree: We decree heavens Angel Armies are released into the affairs of men as a result of our crying out to You, O God. – Angels Armies pg. 194
