Gideon: Seeing God's Strength

From Series: More Jars Of Clay

The story of Gideon illustrates God’s sovereignty over our troubles as well as our deliverance. When Israel disregarded God’s grace in favor of self-reliance, He gave them into the hands of their enemies, the Midianites. Oppressed and impoverished, the people finally cried out to the Lord—who then sent weak, fearful, yet obedient Gideon to lead them in battle. Reflecting on this unusual strategy, Alistair Begg explains that God often allows hardship to remind us of our dependence on His strength and mercy.
