Today you should read: Judges 6:1-32
Finding confidence in the Lord can cause you and I to think and do some pretty amazing things. One man’s story of how confidence in God radically changed him is our passage for today, the story of Gideon.
Gideon was a timid, cowardly man who saw himself as worthless and useless. But when he meets with God he is instantly transformed and does some pretty amazing things. Right off the bat he builds an altar to the Lord and names it Yahweh-Shalom (The Lord is peace). Gideon then takes down an altar to a false god and almost gets himself in big trouble. He does some other amazing things we will see later on but here is the lesson:
Time with the Lord=confidence in the Lord
The opposite is also true. Time away from God will many times result in timidity in our lives and relationships. So, here is the take away: You want confidence to do great things for God? Spend time with Him. You want strength and boldness to share Jesus? Spend time with Him. You want to have godly, healthy relationships? Spend time with the one who made you and knows you best. Time with God will bring you to a place of peace just like Gideon. Who wants that?
