Bible study

Last night we had Bible study again. It was a blessing as usual. We talked about Gideon in Judges 6-7. It is amazing to see God's sovereignty within impossible odds. Goes to show, God doesn't work based on odds. It's interesting to see when God chooses someone... it really doesn't matter what kind of person they are! God pursues the ones He calls. We need to be faithful and obedient to what He has called us to do, and He will do the rest. One thing that really caught my attention is that at the end of Gideon's life, he falls away from God. Looking at people who have experienced the blessing of God, and great victory and then falling away from God really is sobering. I realize that I don't fully trust God; otherwise, I would obey Him immediately knowing that His way is the best way... yet I try to take shortcuts that are harmful to me and others. We must continually pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness (1 Tim. 6:11). The battle is there whether we are fighting or not. Let's fight!
