The Lord is coming again to examine our lives and reward us accordingly.
The Lord expect us to use our opportunities to serve Him while He is away.
The vast majority of the world does not want the Lord to rule over them.
The King will return He calls for an accounting.
This will be a complete total judgment of every area of our lives.

Gideon may being saying he doesn't want to be king, but he was acting like it.
Gideon actually leaves Israel in worse shape than when he started

He had to fight against Midianites
He had to fight against the Israelites
He had to fight against himself

Israel's army of 32,000 was still at a 4 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. This was too many Israelites for God.
When 22,000 soldiers leave, leaving 10,000, it was now a 14 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. This again was still too many Israelites for God.
After the testing at the water, only 300 pass the test, making it now a 450 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. God doesn't even need the 300 and Gideon but chooses to use them.

The problem of Israel was not the Midianites but the fact they forget God.
Gideon puts God to the test, where he is at in fear and doubt, not out of faith.
God responded to Gideon out of grace.
