GOD DOES NOT JUDGE AS THE WORLD JUDGES
How does Gideon feel about himself? Judges 6:15
Who does God say will win the battle? Judges 6:16
Why does God choose the foolish, weak, lowly, & despised?
1 Corinthians 1:26-29
To prepare a still afraid Gideon, what smaller task does God give him to do right at home to prove He would be with Gideon?
How did the town react to what Gideon had done?
ALL WE REALLY NEED IS GOD’S HELP ON OUR SIDE
What else happened to Gideon to prepare him for the bigger battle?
Before the battle God tests Gideon’s faith by sifting his army of 32,000 down to 300.
God tests our faith for 2 reasons.
1. To show us whether our faith is real or counterfeit.
2. To strengthen our faith for the tasks He’s set before us.
How does God twice again bolster Gideon’s faith?
Judges 7:9 & 7:13-14
How does Gideon respond this time? Judges 7:15
