Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“But if you are afraid…, go down to the camp with Purah your servant, and you shall hear what they say; and afterward your hands shall be strengthened to go down against the camp.” – Judges 7:10-11a
God promised Gideon victory. But Gideon still had some questions. Did God pick the wrong guy? Was victory really guaranteed?
God already knew Gideon was afraid to go into battle. God didn’t rebuke Gideon for his fear! He offered an opportunity for Gideon to build the confidence he needed to win the battle. He told him to go down into the enemy’s camp and listen to how they feared Israel. Even the enemy didn’t think he would beat Gideon!
God is not afraid of your fear. Confess your fear to God, and He will give you the confidence you need!
Father, thank You for tolerating my fear. Thank You that life with You means I never have to be afraid. Help me to live for You – without fear – in Jesus’ name!
