Gideon worked for the Lord, but when Gideon needed help from the city of Succoth, the leaders said to him,
“‘Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in your hand, that we should give bread to your army?” (Judges 8:6).
Big mistake. “So Gideon said, ‘For this cause, when the LORD has delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers!’” (Judges 8:7).
A man finally arose to fight the Midianites, and some of his fellow-Israelites would not stand with him. They found out the hard way that failing to recognize a man of God in action brings a heavy price.
When you see a man or a woman of God in action, do everything you can to support him.
