Re:Verse reading–Judges 7:2-8, 15-22 (day four)
God had given Gideon instructions for the battle…He had promised to deliver the enemy into the hands of Gideon’s small army. To reassure Gideon, God told him to take his servant and go observe the enemy’s camp. When he did, Gideon had confirmation that God was doing what He had promised. From a dream, one of the soldiers was foretelling Gideon’s coming victory. Verse 15 says, “When Gideon heard the account of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship.”
Gideon recognized that the God of the Universe was working in his life. When he did, he worshipped! When God works in our lives, how do we respond? Have you ever had an answer to your prayer? Has God protected you from impending danger? Have you ever just looked around at God’s magnificent creation and recognized His hand at work? How did you respond? When God intersects our lives with His grace, it should cause us to worship. Gideon got it right!
