February 20 – Judges 6:36-40

36  Then Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said,  37  behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said.”  38  And it was so. When he rose early next morning and squeezed the fleece, he wrung enough dew from the fleece to fill a bowl with water.  39  Then Gideon said to God, “Let not your anger burn against me; let me speak just once more. Please let me test just once more with the fleece. Please let it be dry on

the fleece only, and on all the ground let there be dew.”  40  And God did so that night; and it was dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground there was dew.


Oh ye of little faith.  It’s easy to judge Gideon and wonder how he could doubt God.  Yet, we experience God’s mercy and grace every day and sometimes remain fearful.


Is there something that you are fearful of, dreading, can’t wrap your head around, or simply don’t understand?  Is it interfering with you faith?  Take comfort in the fact that God did not forsake Gideon even when he asked for more proof that God would be with him in the battle.  God is with you during your daily battles and will not forsake you.  Ask him to restore, renew and strengthen you as you face your battle(s).


Heavenly Father, I have been like Gideon where I wanted to be sure I heard what I thought I heard.  I know the more time I spend with You, the more I recognize Your voice and understand what I am to do.  I know the more time I spend in Your Word, the more I see the daily things You have for me to do.  Help me, Father.  Give me wisdom to carry out the day to day activities that show the world You instead of me.  Help me to be a light in the darkness amidst storms as well as normal days.  Help people see there is something different about me.


In Jesus’ name.
