"Give the LORD, you mighty ones, give the LORD glory and strength!" (Psalm 29) First I thought, "Wow, is God calling us "mighty ones?" He did call Gideon a mighty man of valor, even when he was crouching in fear of his enemies. But then I read it again and thought, "No, God is referring to angels here." But I can't rule out that God sees us through eyes of faith and promise as "mighty ones." Not because of who we are in ourselves but because of the fact that we contain the Holy Spirit, thanks to Jesus, and all the power of the Godhead. Could that be possible? Yes, through giving the Lord our strength so that we receive that strength which is greater in return and apply it in our lives and the lives around us for God's glory. "They that wait upon the LORD shall renew (exchange)their strength, they shall soar on wings as eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40 v.31) The same God who orders the lightening that shatters the cedars, lightening that's hotter than the surface of the sun, is the One whose voice causes even the deer to give birth. That's the breadth of the power that dwells somehow within us by virtue of the shed blood of Christ. Maybe it would be helpful for us to think of ourselves more as God's mighty ones. It certainly got good results for Gideon and his three hundred. "The LORD is with you, mighty warrior. " (Judges 6 v.12 through Judges 7)
