Sunday's Study: Judges 6

Judges tells repeatedly of the Israelites cyclical relationship with God: doing evil, falling into the Pit, crying out for mercy, being redeemed by God's grace. In Judges 6, God sends Gideon, the "least" family member of the smallest tribe to defeat the Mideonites. Although a mighty warrior, Gideon is humble and faithful. He obeys God's call...albeit after asking for some "proof" that God is who He says He is.

Gideon is a great example for us today. God is who He says He is. He knows His plans for us. He calls us to be obedient and equips us for anything/everything He asks us to do. Take for example...a video post. Not my cup of tea, I assure you. It would have been easy for me to skip this post today. I had so many interruptions, distractions, personal challenges. Yet, like Gideon, I carried forth in faith. When God says "go" it's best to go.

God bless,

Great study. You are so great on video. I miss our chats. BTW, I am glad that you mentioned the angel of the Lord and the Lord references. I did a double take and thought that was odd too. =)

you gotta wonder said...

Jeanette, Thank you. Your words of encouragement mean a lot to me.
