// Read Judges 6:3-7 //
3 Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the Midianites, Amalekitesand other eastern peoples invaded the country. 4 They camped on the land and ruined the crops all the way to Gaza and did not spare a living thing for Israel, neither sheep nor cattle nor donkeys. 5 They came up with their livestock and their tents like swarms of locusts. It was impossible to count them or their camels; they invaded the land to ravage it. 6 Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the Lord for help.
7 When the Israelites cried out to the Lord because of Midian,
You need wisdom to perform the instructions of God. God may not tell you everything yet He is expecting you to ask or act in wisdom.
1. God gave Gideon instructions but did not tell him when to carry it out.
2. He did not tell Abraham where he was going.
3. He did not tell Samuel who to anoint in the house of Jesse.
4. He did not tell Joseph how he will become a star.
Prayer: Pray for grace to seek divine wisdom before performance of assignment.
