“Gideon said to Him, ‘O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.’”
Some of us feel like Gideon—like the Lord has stopped working and there is no hope for the world. But there’s not one shred of Scripture that says we cannot have a mighty revival in the day and age in which we live. Most of us don’t believe that. You talk about revival, and all people do is give a sympathetic smile. They’re simply waiting for Jesus Christ to get here. I’m here to tell you there has never been a greater day, a greater age, to live and to preach the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. And God wants you, sir; you, madam. God wants you to be in the middle of it. God has a mighty plan for you. And we need to stop moaning, groaning, and complaining about living in the last days.
Read Judges 6–8 to see the challenges Gideon faced. Compare these challenges with the challenges we face today. Consider how God might move today like He did in the time of Gideon.
