“The angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!” (Judges 6:12 in the New Living Translation of the Bible) God really does have a sense of humor doesn’t He? When He went to see Gideon, He called him “Mighty hero” and that was before GIdeon showed his skill in battle or rescued anyone. In verse 15, Gideon let God know that he was not qualified so how on earth could he save Israel. He came from the poorest in the neighborhood and he was the least in his father’s house. Sound familiar? Often I have felt like God must have got names mixed up when He asked me to do something for Him.

Prayer and meditation help us look up and away from the difficulties of life to the Heavens and exalt His wonderful name! Find time to step out of the busyness of life and reflect on His goodness and mercy. Prayer:  I am so glad that I know You, God. Thank You for Your bountiful blessings to me and my family during this season of Thanksgiving! Devotion by Kaye Singleton

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5) Jesus said He is the vine and we are the branches and without Him, we can do nothing. It’s very important to stay connected to Him. The vine offers strength and nourishment to the branches. When the branches become disconnected from their source of strength, they die. God can do without man, but man cannot do without God. I want to stay connected to Him! Prayer: Lord, I want to keep holding to Your nail-scarred hand. I don’t want to lose the connection I have with You! Amen! Devotion by Kaye Singleton
