Power in Weakness – Day 185

Bible text(s)

12The LORD's angel appeared to him there and said, “The LORD is with you, brave and mighty man!”

13Gideon said to him, “If I may ask, sir, why has all this happened to us if the LORD is with us? What about all the wonderful things that our fathers told us the LORD used to do — how he brought them out of Egypt? The LORD has abandoned us and left us to the mercy of the Midianites.”

14Then the LORD ordered him, “Go with all your great strength and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I myself am sending you.”

Judges 6:12-14GNBOpen in Bible reader

God’s people frequently encounter circumstances that make them feel weak and restless: these meditations draw us to God, who graciously pours out his strength and peace into our lives.
