It's amazing that God sees more in us than we see in ourselves. Throughout the scriptures we read where God speaks to individuals and His Word is so different from what they expect.
This happens in the life of Gideon. At a time when he is hiding from the Midianites (a nation that had oppressed Israel for seven years), the angel of the Lord speaks to him and calls him "a mighty man of valour" (courage). During this time in his life Gideon certainly did not feel courageous, but remember, God sees us as the person we can be!
The God of Glory speaks today and declares, you are a mighty person of courage and don't you ever forget it!
