About Meeting Adonai Series
God moves radically toward us and deals mightily with us when we see and receive Him as Adonai. Meeting Adonai, Owner and Master, changes everything.
Judges 6:1 NASB
Then the sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian seven years.
The reason was this: they had not listened to God’s voice (v. 10).
So Jesus came as “the angel of the Lord” to Gideon and said, “The Lord is with you, O valiant warrior” (v. 12). And Gideon’s response was: “O my Lord”…Adonai.
Here was a man reduced, afraid, defeated, and frustrated, taken down to the posture of a child. Gideon was made ready to hear the voice of God. He was willing to have a MASTER and OWNER.
