Gideon was a warrior full of doubt and didn’t realize the strength God had given him to conquer great things. While Gideon was hiding in a pit of defeat, being patient with Gideon, God had to prove to him that He had chosen him for greatness.
Once God began to build Gideon’s confidence, he became a strong leader. God used Gideon and his tribe to tear down the altar of Baal and defeat the Midianites with only 300 warriors. And they gave God all the glory.
Gideon’s story has given me the confidence that, with Gods amazing power in my life, I can also overcome fear and doubt and do great things for The Lord.
Strength and honor.
