It happened on the same night that the Lord said to him, “Arise, go down against the camp, for I have delivered it into your hand. But if you are afraid to go down, go down to the camp with Purah your servant, and you shall hear what they say; and afterward your hands shall be strengthened to go down against the camp.” Then he went down with Purah his servant to the outpost of the armed men who were in the camp.
Judges 7:9‭-‬11 NKJV

God chooses us NOT to simply hand us a finished product; rather He invites us to be involved in the process. Faith in the ability of God who has called us to battle is required before we can experience God completing His work through us and giving us victory.

However, we need a strong hand and a courageous heart to be involved in what God is doing. With a feeble hand shall no man prevail in battle. What we see with our eyes and the kind of news we listen to determine the condition of our hearts ❤️.

A discouraged and fearful heart will produce a man with a feeble hand to effectively handle the Sword of the Spirit and hold firmly the shield of faith at the battlefront. But a heart that is saturated with the revelation of God’s Word will make a strong man that is ready to fight. May the Lord God cause you today and always to see His activities around you and to hear His Word that is capable of making you strong and courageous in Jesus’ name. Good morning and do have a victorious day.

Your brother,
