Scriptural Meditation- Judges 6:14

The LORD turned to him and said, “Go in this strength of yours and save Isra’el from the hands of Midyan. Haven’t I sent you?”


There is an odd interplay between the angel and Gid’on. It feels a little playful, it feels a little personal. The angel opens with a huge compliment to Gid’on and then this very laudatory promise regarding Midyan. Gid’on has this idealistic zeal that I think is part of why the Almighty chose to work through him. Enthusiasm may be an underrated virtue for believers to cultivate.
