The story of Gideon is the story of the Lord at work.

The story of Gideon is the story of the Lord at work. This is summed up in (a) Gideon’s call – “The Lord is with you, brave man … You will rescue Israel from Midian with the strength you have. I am sending you” (Judges 6:12,14). (b) Gideon’s victory over the Midianites – “Attack! The Lord will hand Midian’s camp over to you” (Judges 7:15). There is also a warning for us. Even those who have been used by the Lord can fall into Satan’s trap. Gideon made a gold idol, and “it became a trap for Gideon and his family” (Judges 8:27).
