Series: Clinging to Jesus: Faith Moving Mountains
Text: Judges 7:19-23
The author of Hebrews mentions a list of names of heroes of faith who achieved great victories in the Lord’s service. Yet, these heroes were not strong in themselves. In fact, they were often weak, vacillating and uncertain. They struggled with doubt and fell into sin more than once. Yet the author mentions them to give us encouragement and strength. They were ordinary people just like us (James 5:17). None of them was weaker and more uncertain than Gideon. Yet God accomplished great things through him. Because God used Gideon, we know he will use us as well.

The Book of Daniel: “Servant of the Living God” (Daniel 6:20)
Chapters 9-10 – “Prayer and Power”
These two chapters present us with two essential parts of prayer, one of which we often use and the other, unfortunately, we tend to neglect. Daniel prays a prayer of confession. The continued disobedience of Israel is what led to their captivity in Babylon. Yet that will not last forever. It will end after seventy years solely because of God’s mercy, not because of any special righteousness on Israel’s part. The answer to Daniel’s prayer is delayed because of spiritual conflict between angels and demons. We must remember that in prayer we enter into this same spiritual conflict which will continue until Christ’s kingdom is established on earth.
