day 7: brave in the growing
Today, for the very first time I fixed a running toilet at my house. The water bill was totally insane last month and so I decided that I could not bear another day listening to the toilet run, listening to money literally going down the drain. So I fixed it. Which included shutting the water off for the entire house, and I feel pretty proud of myself. Like I feel like I am a person who doesn't have to wait around to have things fixed for me, I am a person who can fix them myself. I can do things. Hard things, new things.
So today, as I stepped well outside of my comfort zone and got busy shopping at the home improvement store and standing on my head in the bathroom, I have been thinking about Gideon and how God asked him to take one step at a time out of his comfort zone. I feel like God is doing the same thing with me, showing me that I am not exactly who I think I am, He has made me be more than I expect.
Read: Judges 6:33-7:23
How would you rate Gideon's fear now compared to when we first met him?
How does God respond to Gideon's fear? (see 7:9-11)
Ultimately who defeated Gideon's enemies? (see 7:22)
Also See: Exodus 14:14 & Deuteronomy 1:30-31, Isaiah 30:15, Lamentations 3:25-26, Exodus 15:13, 19:4-6, Deut 3:22, 8:1-2, 32:10-12,
How does God respond to our fear and our weakness?
Read Psalm 103 & also 2 Corinthians 4:5-7
