Unlikely Warrior

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Judges 6:11-16 TO CHEW ON: "The Lord answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.' ” Judges 6:16 After Joshua died the people quickly forgot his final instructions. They began marrying their Canaanite neighbors and were soon praying to idols. So God allowed the nations around them to pick fights with them and win. The kings of these nations took their cities, made them servants and stole their crops. When this happened, the people prayed for help. Then God raised up rulers called judges.

The second job was to fight the Midianites. Thousands of men showed up to join Gideon’s army. But God told Gideon, “With so many soldiers your army will take credit for winning. I want everyone to know that it’s Me, God, who is making you win, not your big army or your wise plans. Send home all the men who are afraid.” Twenty-two thousand men left that day. Less than one thousand soldiers were left. “This is still too many,” God said. After Gideon sent home more soldiers, only three hundred were left.

That night God woke Gideon up and said to him, “If you’re scared, go the enemy’s camp and listen to what they’re saying.” Gideon and his servant snuck into the valley.
