for those who do not know who I am, I am Wilhelmina Lundy that’s pronounced Wil-a-mena Lun-dee and I am a woman of God, a blogger, an online business owner, wewin sister and a periscope broadcaster @Wilhelmina Lundy where I discuss the weekly lesson in the scripture and Journey in praise. While all those hats are so lovely the best is woman of God, Because boy oh boy how I love to serve the Lord. He brings me so much Joy. welcome to my corner of wordpress. ok now lets ;continue in Judges we are on Gideon’s journey in chapter 6 If you didn’t catch the previous blog.
Judges 6:36-40New International Version (NIV)
36 Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised— 37 look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will knowthat you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.” 38 And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.
39 Then Gideon said to God, “Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew.” 40 That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.
I was always looking for a sign, always saying “If God just showed me a sign. then I would do this Idea I have” sometimes the sign is the Idea.
Gideon says ok Lord if it’s really me, If I’m going to be the one who saves Israel then I’m going to lay this wool fleece down on the threshing floor, and if there is dew only on the wool then I’ll know It’s me. Now lets remember we learned yesterday that Gideon was raised believing in idle gods, so the one and only God, the God of his forefathers was now calling on him.
The next morning only the wool had dew on it. ok now, alright Lord now your sure it me, so Gideon says don’t get mad but let me ask one more thing , this time dry the fleece and put the dew on the threshing floor.
God has no problem telling us what he wants. we have a problem excepting that someone thinks we’re that great, that we can achieve this important task that we are given, with the gifts that he made us special for.
this passage also shows us that God will never stop showing us that he is here, He has our back. He answered Gideon’s request, to build his faith in God. Remember just the day before Gideon was praising Ba’al.
For the task at hand Gideon needed faith in the Lord God, to be able to allow the Lords spirit to strengthen him where he was weak. To accomplish the task at hand. God wanted to use Gideon, and Gideon wanted to be used.
Praise God I hope you enjoyed the word!!! all Praise to the Almighty God. Don’t forget to be encouraged to do your best at everything you do and have faith that God will strengthen you where you are weak. God Bless you
If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time
