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 it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried out to the Lord because of the Midianites, that the Lord sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel: “I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage; and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out before you and gave you their land. Also I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; do not fear the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.’But you have not obeyed My voice”’” (Judges 6:7-10).
Learn From Gideon~God is a good God!
God always has His children’s best interest in mind.“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11)…
The only path to lasting happiness on earth is trust in God.“…O Lord of hosts, happy is the man who trusts in You!” (Psalm 84:12).
concluding comment~We learn about Gideon primarily from Judges 6-8, but also Isaiah 9:1-7, and Hebrews 11:1-3, 32-34.
