Judges 7 – Reading Note

  • In the battle against Midian, God did not want the people to suffer the illusion that they won the battle by their own power. Not only would that be unjust – taking the praise that rightfully belongs to God – it would also hinder them from learning to fully appreciate God. So, God made Gideon reduce the size of his army to a paltry 300 men.
  • God didn’t reprimand Gideon for being afraid. He simply helped him regain his courage.
