Christianity in competition against the offerings of the world doesn’t always come out on top. This challenge of faith is as old as time. Moses, Abraham, and Gideon are only a few of the great men of the Old Testament who had events of struggle with their faith.

God found Gideon hiding in a winepress. God told Gideon He would use him to deliver the Israelites. Gideon was chosen and because of his humility and obedience was made a man of valor.  The Bible teaches that the Lord comes near to those who humble themselves and yield to Him. He is a mystery of power and humility, God and man.

God wants fellowship and relationship with us. He wants us to be His children. He walked with Adam and Eve in the garden. God came to earth, born of a woman, walked as man as the Christ Jesus. He stripped Himself of His omnipresence and omnipotence and omniscience so that we would receive adoption as His children and heirs. He is a mystery of kingship and fatherhood, God and man.

God doesn’t have to journey. As Jesus He traveled about healing and doing good. Even still, He was everywhere all at once. Jesus was fully God and fully man. It meant that He would hunger, thirst, become weary, weep over the passing of a loved one. He know what trial and betrayal is. You cannot suffer any malady but what Jesus knows how you feel.

God never sleeps or slumbers. As Jesus He slept in the bow of a boat as storm raged. His fellow travelers feared for their lives and felt Jesus did not care as He slept. As Jesus He rested, as God He called the storm to cease. He commanded the turmoil to immediately calm.

In order to find peace with God, riches in happiness you must humble yourself. Lay aside pleasures, opinions, prideful attitudes and humble yourself before God. He is a mystery of humility and riches. You may be in place of struggle and frustration, hurt and pain, sorrow and grief. Because of Jesus where you are now is not the last chapter. God has a glorious tomorrow for you.
