God Can Use You

Our Bible verses today tell us about Gideon. God’s angel told Gideon that He wanted Gideon to help defeat the Midianite army. Gideon answered, “How can I save Israel? My family group is the weakest in the tribe of Manasseh, and I am the youngest one in my family” (verse 15b).
Even though Gideon thought he was weak, God knew his heart and his willingness to obey. God told Gideon, “I will be with you, so you can defeat the Midianites as easily as if they were only one man” (verse 16).
Because God is so powerful, He is able to use even the weakest person to do His work. Many important Bible people had weaknesses — Moses, King David, Paul and many others. But God knew these people had faith, and He did great things through them.
God can use you, too. Keep trusting Him, and He will show you the great things you can do for Him.
