Go with the strength you have.
The greeting to Gideon was laughable: “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior” (Jgs 6:12).
Mighty warrior? “My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe,” Gideon protested, “and I am the least in my entire family.”
“Go with the strength you have,” the Lord said, “I will be with you” (Jgs. 6:14, 16).
It’s a case of God using a reluctant lightweight to defeat an armed-to-the-teeth enemy that had been savaging his people for seven sorry years.
Take this sentence from Gideon’s story to write your own: “Go with the strength you have.” You, like Gideon, may think you have little to offer. But it’s enough. When you give your best, you tag team with God: “I will be with you.”
Your best effort, coupled with God’s presence, puts a “W” on the scoreboard.
God’s “I will be with you”
eliminates your weak points.
