Focus Chapters:

  • Judges 9:1-21

 

Standout Verse(s):

THE ACTION

Judges 7:9-11 NLT

That night the Lord said, “Get up! Go down into the Midianite camp, for I have given you victory over them! But if you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah. Listen to what the Midianites are saying, and you will be greatly encouraged. Then you will be eager to attack.”

 

THE REACTION

Judges 7:13-15 NLT

Gideon crept up just as a man was telling his companion about a dream. The man said, “I had this dream, and in my dream a loaf of barley bread came tumbling down into the Midianite camp. It hit a tent, turned it over, and knocked it flat!”

His companion answered, “Your dream can mean only one thing—God has given Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite, victory over Midian and all its allies!”

When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship before the Lord. Then he returned to the Israelite camp and shouted, “Get up! For the Lord has given you victory over the Midianite hordes!”

 

Observation (s):

  1. God knew of Gideon’s fears and prepared assurances in advance.

    That night the Lord said, “Get up! Go down into the Midianite camp, for I have given you victory over them! But if you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah. Listen to what the Midianites are saying, and you will be greatly encouraged. Then you will be eager to attack.”

  2. Members of the Midianite camp were aware that Gideon would win, before he was.

    Gideon crept up just as a man was telling his companion about a dream. The man said, “I had this dream, and in my dream a loaf of barley bread came tumbling down into the Midianite camp. It hit a tent, turned it over, and knocked it flat!”

    His companion answered, “Your dream can mean only one thing—God has given Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite, victory over Midian and all its allies!”

  3. God’s assurances were all that Gideon needed to believe, thank God for the victory and be propelled into action.

    When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship before the Lord. Then he returned to the Israelite camp and shouted, “Get up! For the Lord has given you victory over the Midianite hordes!”

     

Application:

God’s proactive response to Gideon’s fear is so reassuring. His understanding of Gideon was so in-depth that He prepared external reassurances, for Gideon, before Gideon even realized he needed them. Can you imagine that? God accomplished so much with one dream:

  1. God sent a Midianite man, the enemy, a dream and its interpretation ahead of schedule.
  2. God knew when and where the conversation regarding the dream would occur and positioned Gideon to be at the right place to receive what He needed.
  3. The enemy believed that Gideon would win before Gideon believed what God had assured him of.

Through one move, God was able to strike out Gideon’s fear and strike fear in the enemy. That’s a masterful divine orchestration!

Are you fearful about the fight that God has directed you to? Rest assured that you are directed by a masterful Divine Orchestrator! God knows you well and preemptively prepares for your fears and fight. He understands you and makes the necessary preparations to assure you! If God has said it, it will come to pass. Priase God for your victory and head into the fight!

DiscoveringByDesign View All →

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
