The Intrinsic Significance of Gideon as God’s Valiant Warrior– Week 8
4 The Lord Jehovah has given me The tongue of the instructed, That I should know how to sustain the weary with a word. He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear To hear as an instructed one.
5 The Lord Jehovah has opened my ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn back.
1 The king’s heart is like streams of water in the hand of Jehovah; He turns it wherever He wishes.
2 Tim. 2:1, 3-4, 10-12, 15
1 You therefore, my child, be empowered in the grace which is in Christ Jesus;
3 Suffer evil with me as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
4 No one serving as a soldier entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please the one who enlisted him.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the chosen ones, that they themselves also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 Faithful is the word: For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him;
12 If we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us;
15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman, cutting straight the word of the truth.
