Gideon was a timid man who struggled with inferiority. But the angel of the Lord came to him and said: “God is with you, O mighty warrior” (Judges 6:12, MSG). Gideon didn’t believe those words. He saw himself as a failure. But eventually he became a champion. This is what God wants to do in your disciples, but they must break free from old mindsets to see their true identity. They can be changed from wimps to warriors!
Part of my job as a mentor is to help my disciples see who they are in Christ. Life may have programmed them to think they are failures, stupid, weak, inferior or unlovable. Yet there are so many Scriptures that tell us who we really are! The Word of God says we are “righteous,” “forgiven,” “clean,” “accepted” by God, “victorious” and “bold.” I made a list of scriptures to help my disciples understand their new identity. If you would like this list, message me and I will send it to you.
As we meditate on what God says about us, we will be transformed!
