We All Need A Phurah

We All Need a Phurah

Judges 7:10 But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host:

Story of Gideon

Gideon was the fifth judge over Israel in the book of Judges. He is introduced in chapter 6 of the book while he was collecting wheat and hiding it from the enemy. An angel came to him and asked him to take on the task of overthrowing the Midianites.

~Extra Blessing~

The angel addressed him as a mighty man of valor.  Some people may see this as humorous because Gideon was hiding from the enemy.  We NEED to see us how God sees us!

*God sees what we don’t see.  He sees us as…

Blessed                        Holy

Healed                         Highly Favored

Prosperous                  Delivered

And so much more!

Gideon was fearful, and God told him to take Phurah his servant, with him to visit the host of Midio.

Phurah– fruit bearer or one who bears fruit, beauty.  Phurah was a servant of Gideon, but not in the sense of a “slave”. 

Servant can mean many things

  1. Minister
  2. Guardian
  3. Tutor
  4. Teacher
  5. Mentor
  6. Friend


We all need a Phurah.  We all need that person we can call on to give us true advice and help us in difficult situations.

We can be a Phurah in peoples lives to help meet needs.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

 9) Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10) For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

11) Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

12) And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Be available to be a Phurah in someones life.
