When the angel of the LORD appeared to Gideon, he said, “The LORD is with you, mighty warrior.” “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” Judges 6:12-13
We have all felt like Gideon, perhaps some much more than others. “God where are you? Why is this all happening to me? Where are your miracles? How about just some help, I don’t need the Red Sea parted, just to know that you are here and helping me.” Do you need God’s help right now in a mighty way? God’s reply to Gideon? “I will be with you and you will strike down all the Midianites.” God asks Gideon to burn a sacrifice to Him. Essentially trust God to worship Him in spite of your circumstances. Keep your eyes and your heart on God, forget about what’s around you, focus on God and give Him all of you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, and He will make your path straight.
