Key Text: Judges 6:1-24 


  • God Calls Us Out of Desperate Situations 

  • The Israelite’s were in bondage and suffered because of sin (Judges 6:1-5). 

  • Gideon complained (Judges 6:13) and made excuses (Judges 6:15). 

           He had a worldly mindset instead of a kingdom mindset. 


  • God Changes Our Identity and Shifts Our Mindset 

  • The angel who visited Gideon was Jesus (Judges 6:12, 14, 16). 

           He reminded Gideon of his purpose and calling. 

           The word valor means “might” or “strength.” 

  • Our identity is in Christ (Romans 13:14). 


  • The Power of Sowing and Reaping 

  • Gideon gave what he had to give (Judges 6:19). 

  • God, in return, gave him peace: Jehovah Shalom (Judges 6:23-24). 

          The word shalom implies good health, prosperity, and contentment. 


  • God is Calling Us Out of Hiding 

  • The man with the withered hand had to show his weakness to the world (Luke 6:6-10). 

  • God gives us power and strength to accomplish His purpose for us (Isaiah 40:29-31). 

  • God will never leave us (Deuteronomy 31:6). 


  • God Calls Us to Live by Faith 

  • The just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). 

           Belief is the mindset of faith, and it produces good works. 

  • A change of perspective and the confirmation of next steps comes as we get closer to who God has called us to be and where God has called us to be. 

  • See through the eyes of faith, not fear.
