Once again I have been spiritually humbled by my daughter. As a family we’ve been working our way through studying the book of Judges in the Bible. We got to a part where Gideon, one of the judges, overhears a dream from the camp of his enemies in which he is represented as a barley cake rolling into the enemy camp and flattening the tent.
I never really understood it and asked the family, ‘What do you make of the dream then?’ Anya immediately replied, ‘The barley cake would have been really small compared to a huge tent so it shows that Gideon’s small army would have no problem defeating the enemies.’ I had never got it before, I had always imagined some massive bread cake rolling in cartoon style and flattening the enemy tent. But the Bible doesn’t say it was a huge oversized butty. It just says a barley cake. It is a privilege sharing this journey with Anya she explains things so well.
I asked what lesson we can learn from this and Anya said, ‘When we have a problem, no matter how big it is, God will always helps us.’
