Hi friends – It is so nice to see each you! I am really excited to share a scripture and story from the book of Judges. The scripture I want to highlight is Judges 8:23 and the person is Gideon. In Judges 6:12 the angel of the Lord appears to Gideon and says “the Lord is with you, you are a mighty warrior.” What encouraging and kind words the angel of the Lord delivered. Between chapter six and chapter eight there were some battles that Gideon had to face with God by his side. In Judges 8:23 Gideon tells the people that ultimately God is the one who will guide them always if they let the Lord do that. You may not be in a battle like Gideon but there can be tough situations. Remember that God is with you, pray for God to direct you and He will guide you. Until next time my friends remember you are known and loved by Jesus. God bless!
