Learn From Gideon, 35of52

 


~ God And You Can Be The Majority ~

 

 

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 every man stood in his place all around the camp; and the whole army ran and cried out and fled.  When the 300 blew the trumpets, the Lord set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.  And the men of Israel gathered together from Naphtali, Asher, and all Manasseh, and pursued the Midianites.  Then Gideon sent messengers throughout all the mountains of Ephraim, saying, ‘Come down against the Midianites, and seize from them the watering places as far as Beth Barah and the Jordan.’  Then all the men of Ephraim gathered together and seized the watering places as far as Beth Barah and the Jordan.  And they captured two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb.  They killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb they killed at the winepress of Zeeb.  They pursued Midian and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side of the Jordan” (Judges 7:21-25).

 

 

Review Judges Chapters 6-7.

 

Learn From Gideon  ~  God is the only One who can gain the victory!

  1. God can do great things with an obedient servant—even if that person has doubts and is fearful.
  2. Gideons 300 men defeated 300,000 enemies—1,000 to 1 odds.
  3. Nearly half of the 300,000 enemies were killed or seriously wounded. 
  4.  

  1. No matter the odds you are on the winning side if you are on God’s side and do things God’s way.  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). 
  1.  

 

Challenge For Us  ~  Gideon defeated an army 1,000 times the size of his.  What is God challenge to you today?

 

concluding comment  ~  We learn about Gideon primarily from Judges 6-8, but also Isaiah 9:1-7, and Hebrews 11:1-3, 32-34.
