Many people have been taught about different Bible stories over the years and I think very few actually take the time to read the Bible and the stories for themselves. Sometimes you have to read the chapters before and after to get a good understanding about what is going on in the story. The story of Gideon is just one of those times. In Judges 6 we see a glimpse of the relationship that God has with Gideon and how much patients God shows Gideon in his doubt. I think it is Gideon’s respect and honor of God and the angel that is the difference.
Then we get into Judges 7. God has called Gideon to gather men up for battle against the Midianites. We don’t know exactly how many men were gathered at this time but we do know that 22,000 got to go home because they were scared. God’s looks at the remaining and says “Nope, still too many” in verse 4 and also says to Gideon “I got this one, just get them to the water”.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
