  • Are You The Purah That Someone Needs?

    Contributed by Anitha Jabastion on Jun 19, 2022
    based on 3 ratings

    Why did God specifically single out Purah and not any servant to go with Gideon to the enemy's camp?

    “Get up, go down against the camp, because I am going to give it into your hands. If you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah and listen to what they are saying. Afterward, you will be encouraged to attack the camp” (Judges 7:9-11). The story of Gideon is very more

  • "Putting Out A Fleece" (Gideon) Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Jul 20, 2002
    based on 104 ratings

    Gideon’s asking for a sign has nothing to do with determining God’s will—God already clearly told Gideon what to do. Gideon’s fleece shows his doubt and fear and lack of trust. Gideon didn’t know his own strength.

    “Putting out a Fleece” (Gideon) Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts “Actions have consequences.” This could be the motto of our times, and it certainly would apply to the period of the Judges. In both cases we see people living lawlessly, doing whatever more

  • Gideon Defeats The Midianites Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Aug 28, 2022

    The Israelites invited Gideon to become their king and to found a dynasty, but he refused, telling them that only God was their ruler (Judges 8:22–23).

    Gideon Defeats the Midianites In time, Israel again turned away from Jehovah and began to worship false gods. The Midianites had hurt the Israelites for many years - for seven years, they stole the Israelites’ animals and destroyed their crops. The Israelites hid in caves and mountains to escape more

    Contributed by John Lowe on Mar 13, 2022

    Gideon was the son of Joash, from the Abiezrite clan in the tribe of Manasseh and lived in Ephra (Ophrah). As a leader of the Israelites, he won a decisive victory over a Midianite army despite a vast numerical disadvantage, leading a troop of 300 "valiant" men.

  • "The Sword Of The Lord" Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Jul 27, 2002
    based on 44 ratings

    God frequently trims our resources to get us to depend entirely on Him. When we’re serving in God’s army we become part of the “overwhelming minority.”

    “The Sword of the Lord" Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts Many of us are familiar with the management concept of downsizing—we’re told to “do more with less”. However, nations don’t usually downsize when preparing for war! They mobilize their reserves more

    Gideon defeated the Midianites. He was the "mighty warrior". He made a critical mistake in his life and led the way to idolatry once more.

    Gideon - A Critical Mistake Judges 8:22-35 Introduction Thomas Huxley stated in 1902, "A man’s worst difficulties begin when he is able to do as he likes." The battle was over. Gideon and the 300 were triumphant. The enemies of Israel were subdued and they were free to work and worship as more

  • The Fear Of Obedience - Part 3

    Contributed by Travis Newbold on Jun 6, 2019

    As we continue to examine the life of Gideon we see how scared he can really be but despite his fears he still presses on and obeys God.

    Think back to your childhood for a moment with me. I know that this might be more difficult for some and easier for others but let’s all do this together. Think back to the good old days when you weren’t tied down by so much responsibility and your main goal for the day was to just have fun.(Boy I more

  • Patriots For The Cause Of Christ

    Contributed by Rick Kallstrom on Jun 8, 2003
    based on 9 ratings

    When everything they had tried had turned out wrong, and when all had seemed lost, the Israelites cried out to God for help. By grace, God heard the cry of His people and intervened to raise up a leader who could both judge and lead His people.

    The year was 1150 B.C. and the Israelites were in terrible circumstances. The military strength that they once had was no longer there and their enemies, the Midianites, had stolen most of their possessions. When everything they had tried had turned out wrong, and when all had seemed lost, the more

  • Grounded In Trust Series

    Contributed by Troy Borst on Sep 1, 2004
    based on 27 ratings

    Gideon was a man that had serious trust issues with God. He looked around in his land and concluded that God must not be near because of the circumstances. He looked at himself and knew that he was not equal to the task of defeating Midian and did not t

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Sep 18, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    Faith does not rest on the heart like foam on beer, said Martin Luther. Gideon's faith is active in this episode as he the spiritual idolatry of his own people.

    How was your first day of school? Did the teacher give you a test? Were you assigned any projects? Did you get any homework at all? In my experience the first day of school was a day to get books, meet the teacher, and catch up with friends. It was probably one of the easiest days of the school more

  • Gideon: When The Lord Gave Him The Promised Victory Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Nov 8, 2022

    Military strategists would have laughed out loud if they had heard God's strategy for defeating the enemies of Israel during Gideon's day. Gideon,though, followed these instructions to the letter and God gave Israel a great victory!

    Introduction: Some of the military’s greatest strategists mentioned never going into action against the enemy unless you have two or three times more of everything than they do. Gideon had blown the trumpet, basically the same thing as declaring war against Israel’s enemies, and many of the local more

  • Gideon: From Despondency To Defiance Series

    based on 226 ratings

    Out of weakness Gideon was made strong.

    [I used a sermon by Stuart Briscoe in Nelson’s Annual Preacher’s Sourcebook (2003) as a starting point for this sermon.] Hebrews 11 is often called God’s “HALL OF FAME.” In this chapter we find a character with whom we can identify. His name is GIDEON. Gideon’s name is found in verse 32. A more
