Familiarity breeds contempt.
The story of Gideon is well-known. We talk about Gideon’s woolen fleece that was put out to seek guidance. But last week in Judges 6 we saw it wasn’t for guidance, but was a delay tactic. He knew what God asked, but in fear he delayed.
I was challenged to consider if there are decisions or tasks where I am ‘placing a woolen fleece out’ rather than obeying God?
God graciously speaks to us through the Bible, revealing his plans and purposes in Jesus for us. Personally, understanding God’s will for us in the Bible is not that hard… obeying it is the challenge. The Word of God is near and clear, but so often we fear!
Let’s ask God for help to trust and obey him, so that we serve him with our whole life. And ask that faith would replace fear as we hear his Word.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
