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 6:15 NASB
He said to Him, “O Lord, how shall I deliver Israel? Behold, my family is the least…and I am the youngest…”
Gideon’s courage lay not in the strength to believe or to fight. His courage was that he faced the reality of his dire situation and his own complete inability to solve it. To face this blank truth of your weakness in all its frightening implications requires the greatest courage of humanity’s dilemma. That is the “strength” that recommended the man to Adonai.
God ever chooses the least and the weakest because they are in reality not illusion. They can be trusted to need Him in full desperation.
