11 The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite,where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. 12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

 

-Judges 6:11-12

-Judges 7:2a

With God, the way FORWARD is often BACKWARDS

2b or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’ Now announce to the army, ‘Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.’” So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained. 


-Judges 7:2b-3

25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.


-Matthew 16:25
