We love transformations. From fixer-upper homes to total body makeovers to restaurant re-dos, we enjoy watching something not-so-great turn into something amazing. Gideon is one of the great transformations in Scripture. From a fearful, hiding thresher to a brave warrior, his story is a favorite in all of Scripture because we see such a drastic change. In Judges 7:15, we discover what led to Gideon’s transformation: “As soon as Gideon heard the telling of the dream and its interpretation, he worshiped.” He had heard God’s word, witnessed His powerful presence, and believed the truth. And that brought him to his knees in worship. What we believe—the gospel—matters, and it is designed by God to change us deeply and eternally.
When was the last time you responded to God in spontaneous worship? How can you add more worship of God in your life?
