Questions for GOD. 

What could be better than getting answers to our why questions? Trusting a good and powerful GOD.

Go with the strength you have . . . . I will be with you. nltโ€”Judges 6:14, 16

What would you do if the LORD showed up in the middle of your workday with a message? This happened to Gideon, one of the ancient Israelites. โ€œThe angel of the LORD appeared to him and said, โ€˜Mighty hero, the LORD is with you!โ€™ โ€ Gideon could have responded with a wordless nod and gulp, but instead he said, โ€œIf the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us?โ€ (Judg. 6:12-13 nlt). Gideon wanted to know why it seemed as if GOD had abandoned His people.

GOD didnโ€™t answer that question. After Gideon had endured seven years of enemy attacks, starvation, and hiding in caves, GOD didnโ€™t explain why He never intervened. GOD could have revealed Israelโ€™s past sin as the reason, but instead He gave Gideon hope for the future. GOD said, โ€œGo with the strength you have . . . . I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianitesโ€ (vv.14, 16 nlt).

Do you ever wonder why GOD has allowed suffering in your life? Instead of answering that specific question, GOD may satisfy you with His nearness today and remind you that you can rely on His strength when you feel weak. When Gideon finally believed that GOD was with him and would help him, he built an altar and called it โ€œThe Lord Is Peaceโ€ (v. 24).

There is peace in knowing that whatever we do and wherever we go, we go with GOD who promised never to leave or forsake His followers. โ€”Jennifer Benson Schuldt

INSIGHT: Todayโ€™s text provides some insight into how we should view situations for which we feel inadequate. Gideon did not feel prepared to go into battle against the Midianites who were oppressing Israel. Responding to Gideonโ€™s understandable concern, GOD sent the angel of the LORD to encourage him. He said that Gideon should โ€œgo in the strengthโ€ he had (Judg. 6:14), but he also said, โ€œI will be with youโ€ (v. 16). When GOD calls us to take on a difficult task, we can rely on His strength and power to help us accomplish it. Are you facing a situation for which you feel inadequate? Ask GOD for His strength to help you. J.R. Hudberg
