Gideon : Your Weakness, God’s Strength

PageLines- gideon.jpgOur Women’s Study Groups are gearing up for this next study session that begins in September.  Both our Wednesday Groups and Thursday Groups will be going through the study ‘Gideon’ written by Priscilla Shirer.

When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky.  But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that.  Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people.  His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers.

This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient?  Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of neglecting or trying to escape your weakness, see them as the gifts they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.

Our Thursday groups meet in the Lighthouse!  Wednesday group meets in an upstairs classroom adjacent to the sanctuary. Please consider joining us!  See you in bible study.
