Judges 6:12 "When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, "the Lord is with you, mighty warrior."

While reading the book of Judges, I kept returning to this particular scripture. Why did the angel not just call Gideon, Gideon? Why "mighty warrior?"  Could it be that Gideon needed to be reminded of who he was? Of what he was capable of doing? And isn't it just like God to offer that boost of ego right when he needed it? This week, God calls you Mighty Warrior. Through Christ, you are fully equipped to overcome every obstacle that presents itself. May you operate fully in the grace that God has made available to you.
