Gideon asked God why Israel was enduring such hardships if He was really with them. God did not respond to his question. He simply told Gideon to go out and deliver Israel, for He had raised him up. God’s thoughts and wisdom so exceed ours, that, if He did answer many of our questions, we would not be able to understand His answers. Our role as servants is not to understand God, but to obey Him. Please open your Bible to Judges chapter six, verse fourteen, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his study on the elevation of Gideon to become Israel’s fifth judge.
