Topic: You Are Coming Out Of Obscurity [TREM Devotional 25 June 2020]
And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.” Judges 6:11 (KJV)
In this text, Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress when it should be threshed in the wheat-barn all because he had to hide from the enemy. The Midianites had so terrorized them that they did not know who they were any longer. They did not recognize their identity. You know it is so sad that we use the world as an example for us today. It is a sad situation that the world should now be our example when the world should look at us as an example. Gideon was afraid and was hiding when he had wheat that could be developed into different products and maximized but it was still hidden. His potentials were being limited. He could not maximize his potential because he was surrounded by the enemy.
Come out of hiding. The world is waiting for what you carry. Romans 8: 19 tells us that: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God”.(KJV)
Some believers are highly gifted but they are limited for one reason or the other. They are limited and are not able to look far beyond the walls of limitation and containment which the enemy has presented before them the scripture says in Judges 6: 12: “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour”(KJV).
Understand that Gideon was just an ordinary man like every other person. He had a destiny! But he was not fulfilling the destiny because of the circumstances surrounding him. Fear and terror drove him into hiding.
I declare that your days of hiding in obscurity are over. This is your time of manifestation.
