GOD ENCOURAGES (6:12) God is always willing to encourage us whenever we’re afraid, uncertain, or overwhelmed by opposition Gideon was an Israelite who faced all these challenges, yet the Lord faithfully helped him every step of the way Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 3
GOD EQUIPS (6:14) God calls those who He’s equipped for the task He has in mind Even before the Lord reveals what He wants us to do, He’s already prepared us for it Because of Israel’s disobedience, the Lord had allowed them to be harassed by the Midianites, who repeatedly overran their territory, destroying all the crops The angel of the Lord appeared to him, saying, “The Lord is with you, O valiant warrior” (Judges 6:12). God knew the bigger plan of what He was going to do through Gideon. Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 4
GOD UNDERSTANDS (6:13, 15-24) The Lord understands that we need courage Although Gideon was promised victory, he wanted proof that God was speaking to him Never refrain from asking God for clarification when we’re uncertain if we’re hearing His voice rather than others’ opinions, or our own ideas Once we’re sure, we’ll have the confidence to step out and do exactly what the Lord has told us Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 5
GOD PLANS (6:25-28) The Lord uses lesser challenges to prepare us for greater ones Before giving Gideon the biggest assignment of his life, God gave him the smaller task of tearing down his father’s idols and building an altar to the Lord This was a dangerous act, which would anger the men of the city, Gideon passed the test and obeyed the Lord Faithful obedience in every small situation is crucial because God may be testing and preparing us for bigger opportunities Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 6
GOD ASSURES (6:36-40) Even those who are courageous desire added assurance of God’s presence The Lord knows our weaknesses and is faithful to provide whatever is necessary for our successful obedience Before Gideon delivered Israel from the Midianites, he requested a sign from God. The Lord understands our doubts We don’t have to throw out fleeces to make sure we are hearing from Him because we can trust His Word. Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 7
GOD’S STRATEGIZES… IT IS ALIGNED TO HIS GLORY (Ch 7) God’s top priority is His glory God gave Gideon a battle strategy involving just 300 men with torches, pitchers, and trumpets The battle belongs to the lord! The glory is god’s Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 8
5 PRINCIPLES OF COURAGE Don’t underestimate what God can do in and through you God will always be with you in whatever He’s called you to do The Lord is ready to give you assurance when you doubt Him His ways are often surprising and challenging, but they’re always the best and the most successful The Lord always works in a way that exalts and glorifies Him Sunday, February 9, 2014 Black Forest Chapel 9
