Sometimes we’re the answer to our own prayers. Gideon asked why they were oppressed, where was God’s great acts of deliverance? Where was God?? He’s here, he was just waiting for you to cry out to him. And where was his deliverance? You’re looking at him. It’s you. (Isn’t the same true of us today-in the midst of horrific natural disasters, great injustices, we cry out asking where was God? He’s been there, but it’s us who need to get up off the couch and do something about it.)
No matter how weak we are by the world’s standards, giant obstacles or impossible callings are no match for the strength of our God. He promises His presence in our obedience, and that is all we need. That’s all He asks of us, to obey and to trust in His sufficiency.
If He calls us to it, He will be with us through it.
