Supporting verses:

Judges 7:9 And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand.

---

Here God is telling Gideon - before the battle has even started, He has delivered the midianites into his hands.

How?

Through a dream:

Judges 7:11 And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that were in the host....


13 And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along.

14 And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77373772


There was no place for the Midianites to escape to:

Judges 7:23 And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites.

24 And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76188597


Despite Gideons fears and doubts he turned out to be the right man to lead Israel after all.

And of course in all battles - the leaders must be dealt with:

Judges 7:25 And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.

Lessons to be learned from the story about Gideon:

Short excerpt:

From zero to hero:

Hear His voice

Listen to God’s leading voice in your life.

As we go from day to day, we may feel like we come up against walls and insurmountable obstacles; moments when we see our enemyMost often when a Christian refers to his or her “enemies” they are speaking about the sin in their flesh and the temptations and lusts that arise from there. These are enemies because they tempt us to act contrary to the will of God. These can also be spiritual powers such as the spirit of the times which oppose the... More – the sin that is rooted deeply in us – and we become tempted to feel afraid that we don’t stand a chance to win this battle.

But He knows who we are and He has chosen us before the beginning of time to emerge as victors over our indwelling sinSin is anything that goes against God’s will and His laws. To commit sin is to transgress or disobey these laws. The lust to sin dwells in human nature. In other words, it is contaminated and motivated by the sinful tendencies that dwell in all people as a result of the fall into sin and disobedience in the garden of Eden. This... More! When we put God in charge of leading our decisions, we will become conquerors!

3 Important Lessons Gideon Teaches Us about Prayer

Small excerpt:

God has a much greater mission than demonstrating his greatness. His mission is demonstrating his love. His greatest challenge was getting his people to receive that from him.

In Gideon’s case, that was about to change.

“Don’t go away…” Gideon said to God. “And the Lord said, ‘I will stay here until you return’” (Judges 6:18).

And then God did a lot more than that.

---

Asking God to not leave you when you need him most - and his saying I won't leave you, is an awesome display of his love for us.

Matthew 24 - Evil will abound:

From Rapture Ready:

YouTube Promoting Pedophilia:

Small excerpt:

Kids love making videos. When we were kids, we recorded ourselves on tape recorders and played it back. It typically involved a lot of giggles and silliness. Likewise, today, children make videos with their phones and post them on YouTube. It’s innocent fun.

But pedophiles are reposting children’s videos and distorting the intent – turning them into a perverted feeding frenzy. And YouTube is facilitating it....

YouTube is making big bucks by promoting pedophilic obsessions. And we know that pornography is the fuel that leads to abuse. This is explained to us in Scripture.

“[E]ach person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death” (James 1:14-15).

YouTube is providing the fuel for pedophiles to commit horrendous acts against children.

YouTube is owned by Google, a platform with highly developed algorithms. Is this activity intentional or irresponsible oversight? You decide...

He had the same response when he approached the men of Penuel:

---

8 And he went up thence to Penuel, and spake unto them likewise: and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered him.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77420931


Therefore, he had harsh words for them also:

9 And he spake also unto the men of Penuel, saying, When I come again in peace, I will break down this tower.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75509265


So, Gideon and his men defeated Zebah and Zalmunna's army & pursued Zebah and Zalmunna when they fled:

---

Judges 8:0 Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.

11 And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host; for the host was secure.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77435510


Gideon caught up with Nebah and Jogbehah - ending the battle once and for all.

-----

Judges 8:12 And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.

Timely article:

The Wimp Who Became a Warrior

Small excerpt:

When God chose Gideon to deliver Israel from the Midianites, he made excuses—“Oh my Lord, how shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house” (Jgs. 6:15, KJV). Manasseh was the smallest of Israel’s twelve tribes, and Gideon had a serious inferiority complex. He complained, “I am a nobody going nowhere.” Remember, God likes to take nobodies and make somebodies out of them so He can get all the glory. Gideon asked for a sign to confirm God was truly calling him to lead Israel. The angel caused supernatural fire to flare out of a rock and consume his sacrifice (Jgs. 6:17-22). Confirmation granted.....

The angel declared, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor” (Jgs. 6:12, NKJV). The NLT calls him a “mighty hero” while the NET says, “courageous warrior.” Even though his name means “great warrior,” Gideon didn’t look like a hero as he cowered in fear, hiding from the enemy. He acted more like a cowardly wimp than a courageous warrior. Who could blame him with Midianite assassins lurking around every corner? God saw his potential and overlooked his present state. God doesn’t see us as we are; He sees us as we can be if we yield to His will. God turned this whiner into a winner and changed Gideon’s perspective. He accused God of forsaking Israel when it was actually the other way around (Jgs. 6:13)....

Some have thought that these were worn in honour of Astarte, or the moon, the goddess of the Phoenicians, from whom these people had borrowed that idolatry.

According to biblehub - we are discovering a weakness in Gideon - the want of prosperity:

Verse 24. - I would desire a request of you. Again human weakness breaks out in this great man, and we seem to see the effect of great prosperity in stirring up selfish desires in his heart.

It was perhaps not without significance that mention was made in ver. 21 of his taking the ornaments that were on the camels' necks in connection with the slaughter of the kings. Anyhow we have now a second instance of a love of spoil.

It seems to have been a national custom with the Ishmaelites, among whom the Midianites are reckoned (see Genesis 37:25-28), to wear golden rings; hence when they came to strip the slain there was a vast booty of gold rings. These Gideon asked for as his share...

After this Gideon makes an odd request:

Judges 8:24 And Gideon said unto them, I would desire a request of you, that ye would give me every man the earrings of his prey. (For they had golden earrings, because they were Ishmaelites.)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75895175


According to biblehub - we are discovering a weakness in Gideon - the want of prosperity:

Verse 24. - I would desire a request of you. Again human weakness breaks out in this great man, and we seem to see the effect of great prosperity in stirring up selfish desires in his heart.

It was perhaps not without significance that mention was made in ver. 21 of his taking the ornaments that were on the camels' necks in connection with the slaughter of the kings. Anyhow we have now a second instance of a love of spoil.

It seems to have been a national custom with the Ishmaelites, among whom the Midianites are reckoned (see Genesis 37:25-28), to wear golden rings; hence when they came to strip the slain there was a vast booty of gold rings. These Gideon asked for as his share...

The people readily agreed to his request:

Judges 8:25 And they answered, We will willingly give them to you

The spoils were of a significant value:

Judges 8:26 And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that were about their camels' necks.

Gideon depended on God for his decisions on the battlefield, but forgot to be prayerful in his duties as a judge:

Judges 8:27 And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, even in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it....
