“The angel of the Lord appeared and said to him, ‘The Lord is with you, courageous warrior!’” (Judg. 6:12).

“You have the strength. Deliver Israel from the power of the Midianites! Have I not sent you?”

(Judg. 6:14).

“May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans! … May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!” (Ps. 20:4–5).

The Hardest but Most Important Thing? Believing What God Says about You!

Recently, the Lord has been speaking to me about activating for healing and miracles. I read a statement from a now-departed healing minister. He said it’s not just important to believe what God says about healing, but it is equally important that you believe what God says about you. In other words, God is the healer, but it is we who are the agents. If the agents of healing don’t believe in who they are, then they would most likely do poorly in their assignments.

The story of Gideon illustrates this. The Angel of the Lord spoke to Gideon, saying, “The Lord is with you, courageous warrior!” (Judg. 6:12). He actually challenged Gideon with two things that Gideon had to believe. First, that the Lord was with him. And second, that he—Gideon—was a courageous warrior.

Gideon believes neither statement and responds negatively, stating: “Why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles” (Judg. 6:13).

The Lord replies to Gideon—He doesn’t argue or reason with him. He simply repeats, “You have the strength. Deliver Israel” (6:14). It seems as if the Lord knows that if Gideon accepts/believes what God said about him (Gideon), then he would soon have the faith for the task of delivering Israel. Because Gideon does begin to believe what God said about him, He begins to grow in faith. He obeys what God tells him to do and soon finds that he and his 300 men do indeed deliver Israel.

I think many of us have trouble with this point. We gladly accept the idea that we can and should believe God and His promises and that they never fail. However, we have to also believe what He says about us. Feelings of inferiority, orphan spirit, a spirit of rejection, low self-esteem—these all contribute to rejecting what God says about us. Of course we want these things to be true, but we often don’t accept them for the here and now. Sure, we have faith for the future, but not for the present. Essentially we say, “Yes, Lord, I want to be a great warrior and used by you. But right now, God, I am not that.”

There are two obvious negative results of not believing what He says about us. First, of course, is that we will not be able to fulfill what He gives us to do. Gideon would not have delivered Israel had he continued in his disbelief. Neither will we be able to move in the power of God and do the healings and miracles He wants us to. He has given us the power and authority, but until we believe we actually are mighty in Him, then we will have great difficulty and will see few healings and miracles.

If we don’t believe we are who God says we are, it will seem like He is far off…

The second negative of not believing who God says we are is that it will seem He is doing nothing in our lives. It will seem that even though you are trying—even though you are walking in His ways—it will seem that very little supernatural is happening. Note again how negative Gideon sounded in his first response: “If God was with us then surely there would be miracles” (my paraphrase of Judges 6:13). As far as Gideon was concerned, God wasn’t there; He just wasn’t interested. In his mind, God was far off.

A lot of Christians, I think, are uncomfortably close to this kind of experience. They wonder why people are not being healed when they pray. They wonder why there seems to be so few miracles or answers to prayer in their own lives. The solution is not to try harder. The solution is to fully embrace and know right now that you are who God says you are: a warrior, mighty in Him, chosen, and highly favored. You will be surprised at how strong the hand of the Lord will be on your behalf.

Thanks so much for praying!
