Judges: Life Without a King

God’s Power in Weakness 

  1. God Requires our Weakness
  2. God’s Encouragement in our Weakness
  3. God’s Victory in our Weakness  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Judges 7:1-25. What stands out to you from this chapter? How has Gideon developed since we first met him in chapter 6?
  2. Why would God say that Gideon had too many men in his army? Why does God require or desire our weakness?
  3. What do we learn about God in verse 9? How have you witnessed God’s patient kindness with you?
  4. Why is Gideon’s “worship” in verse 15 significant? What hinders your worship when confronted with weakness?
  5. Reflect on 2 Corinthians 12:9. Of what weaknesses would you boast? What does it look like for Christ’s power to rest on you in those weaknesses? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (ESV)
