The story of Gideon … and what it means for you.
Do you ever wonder why God chose you?
Have you ever felt inadequate to serve the Lord in any way?
You’re not alone.
The story of Gideon in the Bible is an amazing story of God taking a frail, weak, inadequate human being – a regular guy – and making him into a hero.
Honestly, I don’t know why the Lord chose to work through certain people in the Bible in profound and even miraculous ways. However, I do know this: most of those people were just like you and me. They weren’t super-wealthy. They were not elected by popular vote. They were not generally the most intellectually astute nor the ones with the highest levels of education. They had good days and bad days. They trusted and they doubted. They believed and they wondered. They struggled with fears and heartaches and disappointments, just like we do.
Yet in the midst of their everydayness, God worked in and through their lives, just as He wants to do with us. And although they were flesh-and-blood human beings like you and me, the Lord did miraculous works at their hands.
Actually, I think God does some of His best work through ordinary folks. Gideon was one of those everyday people that the Lord worked through, and there is a lot we can learn from his life.
