When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, The Lord is with you, mighty warrior. Judges 6:12
Eighteen-year-old Emma faithfully talks about Jesus on social media, even though bullies have criticized her joy and enthusiastic love for Christ. Some have attacked her with remarks about her physical appearance. Others have suggested a lack of intelligence because of her devotion to God. Though the unkind words cut deep into Emmas heart, she continues to spread the gospel with bold faith and love for Jesus and others. Sometimes, though, shes tempted to believe her identity and worth are determined by the criticism of others. When that happens, she asks God for help, prays for her persecutors, meditates on the words of Scripture, and perseveres with Spirit-empowered courage and confidence.
Gideon faced fierce tormentorsthe Midianites (Judges 6:110). Though God called him a mighty warrior, Gideon struggled to let go of his doubt, self-imposed limitations, and insecurities (vv. 1115). On more than one occasion, he questioned the Lords presence and his own qualifications, but eventually surrendered in faith.
When we trust God, we can live like we believe what He says about us is true. Even when persecution tempts us to doubt our identity, our loving Father confirms His presence and fights on our behalf. He affirms we can walk like mighty warriors armed with His absolute love, guarded by His endless grace, and secured in His reliable truth.
Which verses help you remain steadfast when youre tempted to doubt your identity and worth? What can you do to combat verbal attacks?
God, please help us recall Your love and respond in grace every time someone tempts us to doubt our value or question our unique roles.
