The story of Gideon and his army.
Key Verse: Judges 6:13-16
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”
The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.”
The Lord answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”
What impacted me most was how I can often feel so small when trying to do hard things for God and how God has promised us over and over throughout the Bible that he is with us always.
I also loved where he says “have I not sent you?”, as it reminds me that He has faith in ME to do HIS work. Which is pretty amazing if you ask me!
I will remember this verse and the impact it had on me when sharing my faith with others and that I’m not alone and remembering to pray that God can work through me to make an impact on others.
