God Is For Me To Do Amazing Things (3 of 3)
Series: This I Know: God Is For Me
Pastor Frank Damazio
God is for you, now, in all your ups, downs and the good and the bad. God is for you. Today we delve into a character in Scripture who God convinced that He was for him. Do you need a little or maybe a lot of convincing that God is for you? He is not against you. He is on your side. The Gideon factor is where God takes the weak, fearful, unbelieving person and uses them to do wonderful things. The story of Gideon has been repeated in each person's life - the billions living today and throughout history. Today, you are a Gideon. God seeks to reveal Himself to you. Daniel says, "Those who know their God will do great exploits." Jesus promises the Holy Spirit power to enable His followers to do greater things than you could ever imagine.
