“Taking a Page Out of Gideon’s Book.” By Kirby Barnett

Here are my thoughts in regards to Gideon.

I like the fact that Gideon questions the Lord. Meaning he is not afraid to question authority, and seeks understanding. I find it interesting that Gideon continually tests God for assurance and God repeatedly reply’s in favor of his requests. Gideon didn’t see himself as a leader, but God had a plan and knew he was the man for the job. When God called to him and said “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor.” This teaches me a lesson that even though you don’t see yourself as worthy or fit for the task, God see’s the big picture and wants to use those where others would question…why you? Yet His glory will shine through.God wants the credit, and this will surely happen when the odds are stacked against you. The only answer can be God. One of his weaknesses was faith, and one of his strongest was faith. I believe Gideon had very strong faith at this point when God reduced his army down to 300. He was still willing to move forward with the plan.

I think we all need to take a page out of Gideon’s book when it comes to faith and trusting in the Lord. God has a plan for all of us to have an abundant, and happy life thought Christ. I/we need to allow God to work through us and guide us through this blessing called life.


Best Regards,
