““Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”
- Many a times we cause the difficult circumstances that makes us suffer (Pr 19:3) but then we blame it on God instead of repenting and doing God’s will.
The LORD turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
- Do I use the talents God has given me ?
- We dont need super powers in ourselves but realize God will do it through us.
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” The LORD answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”” – Judges 6:13-16 NIV
- We doubt ourselves whether we can do it.
- If God is with us, we can accomplish anything, because nothing is impossible with God.
