Thanks David. I need to apply this lesson to my life for the battle is the Lord’s, but sadly, how many times do I forget and trust in myself instead. Thank you sir.

Thank you for this study! I ahve heard soooo many preachers and studies claiming Gidoen was coward and the angel was being sarchastic when he called Gideon a mighty warrior of God. I could not believe God’s messengers were sarschastic! I always thought Gideon was very brave and was taking care of his family at the risk of his own life when he was threshing grain. That is not what a coward does!
I named my youngest son Gideon and then kept hearing about Gideon being a coward and it just bothered me that no one saw the scripture the way I was seeing it. A man of God takes care of his family no matter what!

I really appreciate ur site,its full of inspirations

Njah Gideon April 12, 2013 at 6:19 am

Gideon is really a mighty man of valour. Am name Gideon and always appreciate my parent for giving me this name. Before i got married in 2010, i had read through this passage several times and reminded God of my name and how He had proven to him who He(God) was. I told God, ” Father i don’t need a wife someone else had led to Christ, but let me be the one to lead her to Christ” He answered me. I put God to many other test and He answered me according and today am leaving happily with my wife doing great in our spiritual lives. Ever than am proud of the name ” Gideon” he isn’t a caward but a” mighty man of valour” before God and man. Thanks for reminding me of who and the value this name entails, it makes me remember the Gideons International. All Gideons are mighty men. Godbless you for the inspiration.

Now it’s clear to me, that God wants to use me. Step by step. I shall forget about my doubts and obey and trust in God to see me through.

I thank God for a servant like you Sir. God richly bless you for shedding a limitless insight into a scripture that i personally didn’t ever imagine would be all that i needed to do.

Great lesson….
sometimes we view things as difficult to do,, impossible for us to accomplish but really there’s nothing impossible with God if only we put our trust to Him and ask Him to help us instead than set back and doubt 🙂

God wants us to trust Him fully and surely he will lead us the way 🙂

Yes, He had chosen us to fulfill His plan… we may do it through His guidance and leading…

Gideon makes a bad decision in the end: I’m surprised so many websites skirt this issue, as I think it, too, is a good lesson to ponder. My question is this: Why did Gideon have the people shout his name as well as the phrase “the sword of the LORD;” was that a little prideful (not to be judgemental). When I put myself in Gideon’s place I have always thought, even as a child, “Ugh! I would not want people shouting my name next to God’s.”

Jack Wellman August 2, 2015 at 3:37 pm

Thank you Tresha for your question. If you read the rest of Judges 7 you can see that it WAS the sword of the Lord that delivered them. The people shouted this and not Gideon as Gideon was God’s earthly representative. I am only guessing that this is why the shouted the Lord’s and Gideon’s name in the same sentence but you do bring up a good point to ponder. Thank you.

“You really can’t blame Gideon for wanting to make sure. From a human perspective, God was asking him to do a very foolish thing. He, the weakest member of the weakest clan, was asked to militarily deliver the entire people of Israel. It was another example of God purposely choosing the least of creation for the largest of purposes. When we sense the call of God hounding us to behave in an imprudent way — be it to leave a career, use our vacation for a mission trip, decline a promotion on principle, make an offering with money we need, end a relationship, stay in a relationship — we enter the world of Gideon.

Thank you so much for this story of Gideon it truly reminds me that whatever we face in life. The battle is not ours, but the Lords!

susan June 24, 2016 at 10:35 pm

I am always encourage by the story of Gideon, and how God told him that it was okay to get more affirmation before proceeding. You know, our God doesn’t do the peanut under the shell game with us…He wants us to touch base with Him on things we are having trouble believing, and HE is the author AND finisher or our faith! Wonderful lesson, thanks for sharing

susan June 24, 2016 at 10:39 pm

One more thing, David, I’m starting a Vacation Bible School and the enthusiasm doesn’t seem to be their when I approach people about helping. Yet i really believe God wants me to do this! Would you please pray that God would help me not dispair with His people? Thank you!

This was enlightening .Read it this morning and it just gave me some motivation

Prodeep Kumar Daimary October 19, 2017 at 11:43 am

Very good and encouraging article indeed.

Moses March 15, 2018 at 3:18 pm

Gideon started well, but his end wasn’t like when he started.
As a Christian what are the steps to follow in other to finish our race in Christ perfectly?

Jack Wellman March 15, 2018 at 3:50 pm

Hello Moses. Here is what I suggest and what I too must do. You need to sit under good Bible teaching/preaching, Sunday school and Bible study just like I do. We need one another (Heb 10:24-25) as seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23).

I have learned a lot from the story of Gidion ….and l have seen that God has plans for me and my family and l am the Gidion of my family nomatter how impossible it may look ..l must just trust in God and he will lead me step by step

Margaret August 20, 2020 at 12:32 am

Iam greatly inspired by Gideon’s story and the amazing things our God can do through those that are humble and wait upon Him. Gideon was very determined to take risks and fend for his family no matter the circumstances. When we trust in the Lord and submit to Him there is nothing that’s impossible with God.
