It’s really easy to be hard on ourselves, isn’t it? No one knows your flaws and weaknesses like you do. I’ve often said we’re our own worst enemies. The hard part about changing and becoming someone different is seeing past your current circumstances. A great example of this is found in the life of Gideon. The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshi»

Samson’s mom has got it goin’ on.  Seriously. She does. Let me give you a few reasons: Reason #1: The Angel of the LORD appears to her This doesn’t happen to just anyone. Hagar, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Gideon . . . I might be missing a few. These are special people. Or maybe the Angel of the LORD showing up is something that makes you special. In that case, God chooses a nameless woman from Zorah to be quite special indeed. Reason #2: She is»

Things got bad in Post-Deborah Israel. Real bad. Midian took over. And they did something that no other nation had done: destroyed Israel’s crops and livestock. They were like locusts. The only way Israel could survive was to hide in the mountains and caves. So that’s what Israel did. And that’s exactly what our plucky hero, Gideon, was doing when the LORD found him. He was threshing wheat in a winepress to stay out of sight. Apparently God»

  Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead.... God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the CALLED! I wonder what qualifications we place on ourselves before we»

Yesterday the Gideons showed up at my church.  Actually, not all of them were there.  Only one of them was there. This reminded me of when I was in the 5th grade at Alpha Elementary in Morristown, TN.  The Gideons were allowed to come into schools then.  Each of us were presented with a New Testament.  I’m not sure where that Testament is today, but I still remember it to this day. Most of us are most familiar with the Gideons through»

In his book Crazy Love, about how passionately God pursues and loves us, Francis Chan says this: “But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come through.” Anyone with even a passing understanding of church history knows it is littered with the blood, sweat, and tears of people putting boots on ground and do»

Did you put out a prayer fleece like Gideon did? Gideon believed God was going to use him to rescue The Children of Israel from the enemies, but Gideon need confirmation. Gideon put out a prayer fleece and asked God to perform a miracle as confirmation to ensure he was in God's will. Did you put out a prayer fleece before you committed your life to your spouse?

There’s a lot to be said about Judges 8. We could talk of Gideon’s violent revenge on those who refused him and his army food. We could talk about how he tried to make his oldest son, who was still a child, slaughter two grown men. But I would rather talk about Israel’s propensity towards idolatry. Addiction might be a better word.  Gideon and the 300 just defeated an army of 120,000. For those of you keeping score at home, that is 400o Mi»

I’m about to attempt something dangerous. I’m a trained professional; Do not try this at home. I will write this post in the same room where my wife is watching “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Pray for me. —————- When we last saw our pal, Gideon, he had been called by God to deliver Israel from the oppressive hand of Midian. He first mission was to tear down the altar of Ba’al at his father’s house. Mission: Accomplished. But that wa»
