Dig In to the Bible

  • Read: Judges 6–7
  • In This Passage: Midianites are oppressing the Israelites. God sends an angel to tell Gideon he’s the mighty hero who will rescue the Israelites. Gideon doesn’t think he has what it takes, but God thinks so because God sees the best in us. Gideon leads a small army to fight the Midianites, and God wins the battle.
  • Bible Point: God sees the best in us.
  • Summary Verse: “This is my command— be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).

Dig Deeper

  • God sees the best in us. Even kids who seem super confident have insecurities. Whether or not they vocalize it, they see the worst in themselves at times. In spite of our insecurities, God sees our potential and how we can do his work.
  • Think About: What words come to mind when you consider how God sees you? How is that different from words you’d usually use to describe yourself?

Dig In to Prayer

  • Pray that God will help you realize how sees us.
