Where does your hope come from?
The beginning of the story of Gideon only happens because the people of Israel knew there was only one place to go, one place to put their hope – God – and they began to call on Him and ask Him for help. In the midst of our own trying circumstances, may we not wait seven years to do this as Israel did.
Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the LORD for help. – Judges 6:6
