No Time For Gideon
Hebrews 11:32
November 5, 2017


Hebrews 11:32 begins with a great declaration: I don’t even have time to tell you the story of Gideon!

The story of Gideon is found in Judges 6 & 7

The message from the example of the Israelites is that “when we walk with God, we tend to do better than when we don’t walk with God.

1. What is your faith identity?

Gideon’s faith identity: God calls Gideon “a mighty warrior”

How do you see yourself?

At the end of the day, it is not how we see ourselves, but how God sees us.

The answer to doing things of faith is not within ourselves. The answer is God’s words: “I will be with you.

2. Faith starts at home.

How many altars are in your life?

If we want victories, if we want fruitfulness, it becomes a matter of authority.

Find a place and time where you can build an altar.

Can we believe what God has already said?

3. Faith is learning the lesson: God plus one is a majority

“There are too many!”

God’s math doesn’t seem logical! 1 vs. 450

Conclusion:

Ever feel discouraged? Ever feel small and useless and in bad way? Ever feel inadequate and outnumbered?

Our faith in Jesus Christ can make the difference. If God is for us, who can be against us?

God says: You are a mighty warrior of faith!
