The Warrior is a Child

by Tracey Metzger

Some days I wake up feeling strong… like a strong female warrior. I love those days!

Other days I feel…like this:



Overdressed in a clunky outfit!

When God told Gideon that He was going to use him to save Israel, He said “Go in the strength that you have.”

And then he said these five words…”I will be with you.”

Those five words make all the difference in the world.

It is the difference between operating solely in our own strength and operating with whatever strength we have and allowing God to add His strength to ours.

You can’t do it alone.


“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”  Ephesians 6: 10-13
