First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Judges 7.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — God reduces Gideon’s army from 32,000 to 300 then uses Gideon and his 300 to defeat the large Mideonite army through noise, fear, confusion, and attacking each other.
- Doctrinal — God is hesitant to give victories to people who are too strong or smart or capable because they’ll be tempted to ignore God’s role in the victory (see verse 2).
- Inspirational — It’s ok to be afraid as I follow God; that’s human and normal; I just need to not allow my fears to control my decisions (see verses 10-11).
