Gideon’s Faith

Hebrews, chapter 11, lists people in the Bible who had great faith. Hebrews 11:32 says, “Do I need to give you more examples? I don’t have enough time to tell you about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the prophets.” This verse tells us that one man who had great faith was Gideon.
In our Bible verses today, we read that an angel of the Lord went to Gideon. He told Gideon to save the Israelites from their enemies, the Midianites. Gideon did not think that he was good enough to do this. But chapters 6 and 7 of Judges tell us that Gideon obeyed God. With God’s help, Gideon and a small army were able to defeat the Midianites. Gideon must have had great faith. He trusted God to help him and keep him safe.
You can be like Gideon today. Put your faith in God and His plan for your life. God will bless you and take care of you.
