The Spirit of the LORD Came Over Gideon

Continued the story, Gideon wasn’t fond of the message from the angel. He was in the midst of cruel captivity to the Midianites and was a bit apprehensive about any talks of overthrowing them.

He responded by saying, “Please do not take this the wrong way, However, if the LORD is with me and Israel, why have all these awful things happened to us? Further, where are all the miracles we heard of from our fathers about the LORD who brought us out of Egypt with eagles wings. We have been forsaken by the Yah!”

The LORD nonetheless assured him that he should use his might and save Israel. After getting over his fears and tearing down his father’s altar to Baal, Gideon finally broke through. He went to battle and defeated the Midianites, Amalekites, and all the children of the east. 

The Spirit of the LORD Came Over Gideon

The spirit of the LORD came over Gideon as he slew them to the ground. The LORD played a big role to assure that Gideon and his army did not think it was because of their might that they won. To do this, the LORD minimized the size of Gideon’s military.

They initially sent twenty-two thousand (22,000) troops home, and most of them were really upset about it. There were ten thousand (10,000) troops still; ninety-seven hundred and one (9,701) too many. Only three hundred were told to stay and fight against the Midianites, and guess what? they won!

When they won, Gideon officially killed Midian by killing their two kings, Zebah and Zalmunna. After his success, the children of Israel asked Gideon to become their ruler. However, the warrior turned it down. He told the children of Israel that the LORD would rule over them.
