Little Ol’ Me (And You)

The angel of the Lord appeared to him (Gideon) and said, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!” (Judges 6:12

Have you ever had the Holy Spirit speak to you about your purpose, as clear as day, right out of the blue, right where you are?

Well in Gideon’s case, the answer would be yes. There he is threshing, sifting wheat and an angel of the Lord says, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!” It’s as if God called him out to his purpose long before his birth, long before he would deliver Israel from the Midianites. That God knew Gideon, personally. And that all Gideon had to do is act in accord to God’s announcement. Have a resolve to walk by faith. To take his natural abilities and place them in the hands of the Lord and to believe in His strength (Judges 6:16).

Who does God think I am?

We’re all astonished, blown away even by what God would have us, little ol’ me (and you) to do and be, in Him. Follow me (Matthew 9:9), make disciples (Matthew 28:19), walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7), wait on the Lord (Psalm 27:14), fear not (Isaiah 41:10), trust in the Lord (Psalm 37:3), be of good courage (Psalm 31:24)… All to keep our eyes fixed on God’s work in us, and to give the glory to Him.

Purpose is God’s promise (Roman 8:28).

And it still is today. His knitting of us in secret (Psalm 139:15) has always been with a purpose. We Christians are woven to God’s purpose, and not our own. Our speech, our work, our witness is to promote purpose. Having one in Christ (John 5:19). 

We live in a world that would have us to think that there is more to us than there is to God. When in truth (His Word) there is more to us in Christ than without (John 1:3). There was, is, and always will be a glory and purpose in living and serving Christ. 

So let’s go Christians, our purpose is a privilege; and a calling.

  1. This was really heart stirring, Tahlitha. It’s clear that you are operating in His truth and His purpose here. 🙂 God bless you always!

  2. Thanks Lady Debbie, we’re all purposed in Christ.

  3. Wonderful post! It is amazing when I think of God’s plan. There are billions of people in the world and still, we all have our own special purpose….wow!

  4. Hi Janna! It is wonderful to think on God’s plan. How we are all created in His image; and it’s equally important to know that not all of us are His children. It’s through faith in Christ that we are his children (Galatians 3:26). And it’s in and with that faith we have purpose. What I’ve come to trust through the Word is that Jesus did ‘everything’ so that we might believe in Him. That our purpose (individually and as a whole) would have one focus (John 20:31).

    As always, your comments are a blessing.
