Gideon: God's Choice

From Series: More Jars Of Clay

Judges 7:1-25  (ID: 1959)

While Gideon was not the obvious choice to lead Israel in battle against the Midianites, he was God’s choice—and that made all the difference! When God reduced his army to an inadequate group of unlikely men, Gideon, though fearful, responded with faithful obedience and worshipped the Lord. He trusted God to secure the victory. As Alistair Begg reminds us, in the Christian life there is no place for pride; rather, all deeds are done according to God’s will and for His glory.

Gideon's Three Hundred Men

1Then Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) and all the people who were with him rose early and encamped beside the spring of Harod. And the camp of Midian was north of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.
