Gideon, like many others, began to believe that God had abandoned His people. God sent an angel to speak with him, but it would take more than an angel from God to convince Gideon that God was going to do a miracle.
Have you ever thought that God was not listening to your prayers? Did it seem like He was far away when you needed Him the most? So did Gideon. Look at the life of Gideon and see how God was there all along.
Judges 6:11-16 (NASB)
