Re:Verse passage – Judges 6:1-16 (day six).
14 Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” Judges 6:14
It sure doesn’t seem like the Lord is with us! Do you know what it is like out there? (Judges 6:13)Gideon responded to his visitor with a complaint, and an observation. Things were not well. If only God would do something.
Little did Gideon know that God did intend to do something…by commissioning him to be the deliverer..
We tend to complain in just the same way. When things aren’t well, or not going the way we would like (big or small), we often look to others to take action, when often enough the problem and solution is staring us in the face.
Just as God sent Gideon to do something about their situation, could it be he is also sending you?
