February 17 – Judges 6:25-27

25  That night the LORD said to him, “Take your father’s bull, and the second bull seven years old, and pull down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the Asherah that is beside it  26  and build an altar to the LORD your God on the top of the stronghold here, with stones laid in due order. Then take the second bull and offer it as a burnt offering with the wood of the Asherah that you shall cut down.”  27  So Gideon

took ten men of his servants and did as the LORD had told him. But because he was too afraid of his family and the men of the town to do it by day, he did it by night.


Gideon is still frightened to do as God ask.  He does obey but fulfills God instructions during the night in darkness. 


Do you find yourself in darkness or frozen with fear?  Step into the Light with Jesus Christ.  Become One with Him and let Him shine through you.  Trust Him to bring you out of the darkness into the Light. 


What does it say about our faith when we use the cover of darkness to shroud our obedience?


Heavenly Father, help me not only be obedient to You, but to not be ashamed to follow You.  Help me be proud of being Your child and be willing to shout from the mountain top of Your love and how You take of me.  I love how You love me and are proud of me even though I fail You daily.  Help me be proud of You and praise You to the world at every opportunity.


In Jesus’ name.
