🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: Judges 6.
📚 God Sees More In You. 💪
(Joshua 6:12) The angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!”
Observation: Gideon was hiding in a wine press threshing wheat. In order to thresh wheat, you need wind. This means he was probably having a rough time. However, that's the best he could do to keep his efforts away from his enemy. It's in this moment of frustration and hiding that an angel appears and says he sees more in him than the current circumstances reveal. "I know you are hiding, but there's more to you than this." What a powerful moment for him and a promise for us. God sees more in us than our current circumstances probably show. Stay close to the Lord and let Him reveal Himself to you at the right time. He will call out the good things within you over time.
Application: Stay faithful to do the best you can with what you have. God knows your heart and will do what's right in due time.

📚 Book of the Week. Life Without Lack. (Dallas Willard)
Dallas Willard helps us to understand that the Twenty-Third Psalm is not meant as a nice sentiment or for kitschy decor, it is for the very thick of our lives, the very moment of crisis. Imagine what our personal lives, families, communities, and politics would look like if we rejected the frantic striving of our day, and instead embraced the life without lack offered to us in Jesus Christ. No one has helped me to imagine and enter into that life more than Dallas Willard. I recommend this book with great joy and hopeful expectation.
