When the Lord raised up the Midianites to oppress the people of Israel due to their unfaithfulness to Him, they finally cried out to God after seven years. In response, the Lord sent a prophet who rebuked them for their infidelity and also sent the Angel of the Lord to commission Gideon to become Israel’s deliverer from the power of the Midianites. Gideon followed the Lord’s instructions to tear down the altar of Baal and to build an altar to the Lord. Gideon sent messengers to gather an army to defeat the Midianites and requested two evidences to assure himself that he was indeed being called by the Lord.
Reading of Judges 6
Prayer: Lord, twice You condescended to respond to Gideon’s request for a sign. I thank You that You do not wait until our faith is perfect before You call us, but that You gradually reveal Yourself to those who truly want to know You.
