Judges 8:18, NKJV
So they answered, "As you are, so were they; each one resembled the son of a king."
In Judges 6, an angel told Gideon that he was to go out and save the Israelites from an invading army. Gideon responded, "I can't do that. I come from the poorest family, and I'm the least one in my father's house. I'm not good enough." He didn't realize he was royalty. A few chapters later, when Gideon was talking with his defeated enemies about some fellow soldiers he was trying to find, he asked them what the men looked like. They said, "They looked like you, like a king's son." Gideon had felt inadequate, but even his enemies could see he was royalty.
You may feel as though you don't measure up. It's causing you to shrink back, to not pursue your dreams. You may not be able to see it, but even the enemy knows you're royalty. Why don't you step up to who you were created to be? You're the King's child. You've been born into His family and a new life. Now, do your part and start having a son mentality.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that the new life I've received from You is a life of royalty. Thank You that even the enemy must recognize that I am Your child. I believe that You have put a robe of righteousness on me, and that I can step up and become everything You want me to be. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
