~ God Goes With His People Into Battle, 2 ~
The Biblical account of the life of Gideon provides for one of the most interesting character studies in all of Scripture. In this series we will discover practical lessons for living the Christian life today.
Scripture ~ “And the Lord said to Gideon, ‘Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man’” (Judges 6:16).
Learn From Gideon ~ You and God are a majority!
- God accompanies His people on any mission He gives them.
- God sees Gideon as he will be—not as he is.
- These first two principles are alive and well today. Jesus told His disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen” (Matthew 28:19-20).
- In this particular situation God even assures Gideon of victory!
concluding comment ~ We learn about Gideon primarily from Judges 6-8, but also Isaiah 9:1-7, and Hebrews 11:1-3, 32-34.
