In Judges 6-7 Gideon questioned whether the Lord was even with him.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord, though Gideon questioned whether he could defeat his enemies, You gave him the victory. Are we Christians here in America forgetting that the battle is truly Yours?

Something to think about

Gideon had all the facts but he still hesitated in trusting what he was told.

Something to experience

The greatest place to find God’s guidance is in His Word, the Bible. You and I have all the facts to make the right decisions.  

Prayer

Lord I pray we, that includes all of America’s population, will recognize the danger of fighting in our own strength.  Lord I ask You to give us the strength we need to face every situation.  I pray we not trust in our own power (Zephaniah 3:2).  I pray we will instead ask You to increase Your power in us (Isaiah 40:29).  Lord, right now we are in a battle, a battle with the coronavirus. I ask You to encircle us with Your strength.  I ask You to subdue our enemy (Psalm 18:39).  I pray we will draw near to You for then Your Word says You will draw near to us (James 4:8).  Lord You are our Refuge and I pray we will trust in You (Psalm 73:28). In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.

In Judges 8 the Israelites wanted Gideon to rule over them. 

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord Gideon told the Israelites he would not rule over them.  He said instead You would rule over them.

Something to think about

Gideon never lost sight of the importance of putting God first.

Something to experience

Is God first in your life?  Perhaps if He’s not, today you will allow God to enter completely every area of your life. 

Prayer

Lord I pray we will love You with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul and with all our strength (Deuteronomy 6:5; Mark 12:30).  Lord I pray we will put You first in every area of our life.  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.
