March 28, 2022 Daily Devotional Message By Joel Osteen
TOPIC: Separated for the Better
Judges 6:11–12, NLT – Gideon son of Joash was threshing wheat at the bottom of a winepress to hide the grain from the Midianites. The angel of the LORD appeared to him and said, “Mighty hero, the LORD is with you!”
Joel Osteen Daily 28 March 2022 Devotional MESSAGE
Gideon was hidden from his enemies, threshing wheat on the floor of the winepress, when God said he was to deliver the people of Israel from the Midianites. But Gideon was insecure and didn’t feel qualified to do anything great. The threshing floor was where the wheat was separated from the chaff, and symbolically it became the place where God separated Gideon from what was limiting him. When God called him a “mighty hero,” it separated him from his low expectations and little dreams and empowered him to great valor.
We all go through the threshing floor of difficulties because God is preparing us. He’s separating what’s holding you back, and you’re about to see new growth, new opportunities, new friendships. You’re coming out refined, polished, stronger, matured. On the threshing floor, God will stir up your gifts and confidence. Now quit complaining about how big the obstacles are. If you embrace the threshing floor, you’ll be promoted to a level that otherwise you would never have.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that the threshing floor is not to harm me, but You use it to refine me and bring me up higher. Thank You that You are removing the chaff from my life and purifying me. I believe that You are going to promote me to a level I could never reach on my own. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
