In our story last week, God asked the Israelites to obey Him even when it didn’t make sense, and Joshua and his men marched, blew horns, shouted and watched God collapse the walls of Jericho! In today's lesson, it happens again! We see God asking his children to obey and when they do, He can act on their behalf! He chose Gideon to lead the Israelites to victory. In a very unusual battle, Gideon wins with a very small number of warriors and another strange battle plan. God wanted to be sure the people of Israel realized that only the power of God delivered them and not any strength of their own. In our own lives, we need to remember that obedience to God frees us up to depend on God instead of trying to handle things on our own. Will you promise to do 2 things this week? First sing Jesus Can do Anything from this Sunday's wall activities often!! Second, watch this week as God steps in to lead and direct you and then win your battles!
Depend on God
