Go in your might 

The Lord has blessed you with many things and abilities. Use them for His glory. 
This is what Gideon needed to learn, 

“And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, ‘The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!’ Gideon said to Him, ‘O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, “Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?” But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.’ Then the LORD turned to him and said, ‘Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?’” (Judges 6:12-14).

 
The Lord had delivered Israel for their own sins to their enemies, but it came to time to deliver the children of Israel and the Lord chose Gideon for that job. 
The Lord knew the capabilities of Gideon and the Lord told Gideon to go. Therefore, Gideon would succeed. 

Why hold yourself back? Do what the Lord wants you to do.
