The Father of Compassion

Today’s Daily Devotion

By Dr. George J. Ceremuga

Below is a verse from the band Queen’s song, “We are the champions.”

We are the champions, my friends 
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end 
We are the champions 
We are the champions 
No time for losers cause we are the champions of the world!

The Lord is with you, O champion!
Judges 6:12

The God of encouragement and compassion is encouraging Gideon to believe he is a champion and “go with the strength you have and save Israel” (V.14). Gideon responds with, “Please, my Lord, how can I save Israel” (V.15)? The Lord is reminding us that we don’t need to have great power or influence, we just need to go and trust that the Lord will bless our efforts. 

The Lord reminded Gideon and all of us that the key to success was not his own qualifications but God’s presence with him. God has called us to follow him and be his saving presence in the world. It is his grace and power that can make things better. 

And we’ll keep on fighting ‘til the end.
