Yesterday I talked a little bit about the over all pattern of the Book of Judges. Today we begin looking at a specific example. At this point in the story the Midianites are oppressing the people of Israel. God goes to a young man named Gideon and calls him to lead Israel to freedom by defeating the Midianites. Gideon has some doubts and questions, but God is ready to work through this young man. God's strength is more than enough to lead Gideon and the Israelites to victory. What struggle do you need God's help with today?
