The story of Gideon tells us about God’s outrageous power that makes us brave.

Key Points:

  • Gideon was just a normal guy. There wasn’t anything special about him. He wasn’t a great warrior.
  • God made Gideon brave. God knew Gideon wouldn’t want to lead the army. So, he sent an angel to tell him something he needed to hear (Judges 6:12).
  • God can make us brave. No matter what your challenge, you need to know that God is always there to cheer you on.
  • Next time you’re afraid to do something remember that God will be there to help you to be brave.

Memory Verse:

Judges 6:12 The angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!”
