Join us this week as we welcome our international guest speaker, Pastor Jojo Henson. Pastor Jojo is a leading teacher of the prophetic teams in the Every Nation church movement and speaks to us about the story of Gideon. Like Gideon, do you go through life and make conclusions about God? It takes faith to see ourselves the way God sees us. When God calls us to do great things for him, he doesn’t look at our present situation, he sees what we can actually do. It takes faith to do what God has called us to do. Our strength lies in the fact that God is with us.
When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
– Judges 6:12-14 (NIV)
