“And the Lord looked upon him, and said, “Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have not I sent thee?” (Judges 6 vs. 14)With so much fear of the Medianites, Gideon was busy threshing wheat in a winepress. What he didn’t realize was that his assignment was bigger than sitting in a hiding place and performing a mediocre assignment. He was worried more about his security than going forth to execute his primary mandate. Here was a man who was content lurching in the shadows yet his real position was on the forefront of battle. Are you satisfied with the small results obtained so far? Can’t you realize that you have an obligation to keep on improving? Are you not aware that what you have achieved thus far is only a pale shadow of your massive potential? Your gifts and talents are never for display. You were not brought this far to merely show off and be proud of your gifting. The world is waiting for the best of you to jump into the arena and make your space better. You came this far because there is a lot that is expected of you. Right there in your lane, offload value to civilization. GO IN THIS THY MIGHT & PLAY YOUR PART.
