Wesley's Notes for Judges 6:14


6:14 Looked - With a settled and pleasant countenance, as a testimony of his favour, and readiness to help him. Go - Or, go now, in thy might: in the strength which thou hast already received, and dost now farther receive from me. Have not I sent thee - I do hereby give thee command and commission for this work. God's fitting men for his work, is a sure evidence of his calling them to it.

    Again the Israelites deny their God to worship Baal and please themselves in whatever sin they choose. When along comes trouble, they all of a sudden remember where their "help comes from, it comes from the Lord". NOW they acknowledge God, repent and God forgives them AGAIN. How great is our God's mercy, grace and love for His own? But for the grace of God there go I. Thank you Jesus

    Gideon was just amazing.

    God is so kind. Gideon was terrified but God went to all lengths to encourage him and strengthen his faith. And God speaks to us. he tells us what hes going to do. He doesn't leave us in the dark about his plans. What a wonderful God he is.

    Verse 14~Jehovah God saw the potential that Gideon had. He told him to go with the strength you have. He knew he couldn’t do it in his own strength but he needed him to just get going and Jehovah would make up for the rest.
  • Abel Israel
    Eaglesrock, in my own view of this chapter: Is not that Gideon is afraid, is because Israel had already sinned and God is punishing them base on their sins, because the bible said fear is a torment, and fear also is having faith in the adversary to harm us where as God has already given Israel to the enemy to do them harm because of their sins in worshipping other god Baal.
  • Irene123
    V.2 - they lived in caves; also David did too. And others not of the middle east. These 'pre-historic' bones the worldly people are digging up; the bones of these people is what they are digging up. Just 'pieces' they are adding to to make a 'complete' skull. They shape it to look 'ape-ish'. They hate God.
