God's Strength In Our Weakness


Section 1

Read Judges 7:1-25.

Q1: Gideon is filled with doubt when it comes to his qualifications and ability. Have you ever been filled with doubt when it comes to your qualifications and ability to do what God has asked you to do?

Q2: Have you ever felt like God wanted you to do something and you were nervous and scared about it, so you said God I need a sign? How did God respond? And should we always request a sign from God?

The second test for reducing Gideon’s forces involved a strange ritual: taking into account how men drank water from a brook. Neither way of drinking is singled out as the “right” way, so this may be simply a means of trimming down the number of men rather than a critique of either form of drinking. God wanted to use a small number of men to make sure the glory was not given to the army of Israel but to himself.

Q3: What does this tell you about God and how he works in our world?

Q4: Have you ever experienced the strength of God in your weakness?

Read 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 - For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

Q5: When you hear these verses do you feel like they describe your position and status when God called you?

Q6: Why do you learn about God and the way in which he works from this passage and the story of Gideon?

When God wants to accomplish something he rarely goes looking for the most reputable, credible, courageous, skilled person. Most often times God goes after ordinary, unassuming, messed up people to advance his kingdom and make Himself known in our world.

Q7: Is there a calling or mission you are currently living out from God?

Q8: Is there a calling or mission in which you have not taking the steps you need to take?

Q9: How can this group encourage you and pray for you in taking your next steps?
