“...now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the oak (terebinth) at Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, and his son Gideon was beating wheat in the winepress to hide it from the Midianites. And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, The Lord is with you, you mighty man of [fearless] courage...” (C) Judges 6:11,12 AMP italics and emphasis mine
David was anointed to be a King over Israel when he was just a youth; He (God) refers to him as “a man”...He calls him a man when he (David) was just a boy tending his father’s livestock (1 Sam 13:13,14). In the passage above, He calls Gideon mighty man, worrier, whilst He was hiding from his enemies, Gideon thought He was talking to someone else and would not believe let alone take up the assignment.
Yes, God calls us the way He sees us from within not from without; and this my friend presents a problem, because we cannot see what He sees in us, we become reluctant to follow his lead. But here is a promise, He said, “I will instruct you and show you the way you should go” (Ps 32:8) and “I will make you” (Matt 4:19) so really all you have to do is have a simple child like faith to ‘trust’ and ‘obey’ Him.
