Gideon's Victory (Judges 7)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: The Hand of the Lord saves
In our bible story we learned:
1. God reduces Gideon's numbers
2. God builds Gideon's faith
3. God throws the Midianites into confusion
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Read Judges 8:27.
The story of Gideon is a story of God saving His people. Gideon followed the Lord in faith during the battle, but it wasn't long after the battle ended that Gideon fell into sin. He made a golden ephod (a vest-like outer garment). All of Israel came to see it and sinned in it presence. The house of God was in Shiloh and it was there that the priest wore a golden ephod. Gideon created his own alternate place of worship. One day a deliverer would come who would not sin - Jesus the Lord.
Family Discipleship - "Time" in the Home
We are on week 47 which starts on page 312 in the Long Story Short devotional. Around the corner from experiencing victory with the Lord are temptations of defeat. Gideon walked into battle with faith but on the other side he fell into sin. Take time to talk with your family this week about guarding our hearts and the importance of boundaries.
Pray about it! As a family, praise God for the wonderful way He teaches us to trust Him and for Him to help you love Him above all things.
