Re:Verse passage – Judges 6:36-40 (day four)
God has initiated many of the biblical encounters we have in scripture. Moses, Saul, Esther, Jeremiah…all were tasked with a seemingly impossible assignment. Like Gideon, they initially questioned God whether they were really the one for the job. Each recognized their inadequacies and failures and were amazed that God would actually choose them for His work.
Have you ever questioned God whether He really wanted you to be the one to carry out a task? Maybe He prompted you to witness to a co-worker or a family member…or maybe He wanted you to go on a mission trip…or maybe He confronted you with an opportunity to teach His Word! Were you looking around for a fleece to lay out to confirm that God really meant what He said? Truth be told, we are just like Gideon. When we are uncomfortable with our instructions, we question God, hoping for a different answer when He sees it from our perspective! Learn to recognize God’s voice and learn to obey without question. God does not need our input!
