Judges 6:13 (KJV) Look Up


Judges 6:13 (KJV)
And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.
People have never really changed, have we?
Gideon has the angel of the Lord Himself tell him that God is with him. But all he could do is complain about the circumstances. 
  • If the LORD be with us why are we suffering?
  • If the LORD be with us, where are God’s miracles?
  • If the LORD be with us why has He forsaken us?
  • If the LORD be with us who brought in this enemy?
Mind you, it is the angel of the LORD he is complaining to. 
We fail to comprehend what it means to be in the presence of the Lord and what His blessing is. God is with His children for a promised outcome. Gideon was in a difficult time, but God was there to bring a future deliverance. 
  • It was through the disobedience of the people that trouble had come 
  • It was the people who had forsaken the LORD but 
  • It was God who would bring them out
The same is true today. The favor of God is to be a part of the future deliverance. 
Look up.
Look forward.
Look to God.
