God had given the people of Israel a place in the land of Canaan.
Taking our text from Judges 6 and 7 we explore the life of Gideon.

Occupying the place that God had given you requires commitment, dedication and following the rules of the kingdom. In contrast a space is where there is neither commitment nor rules.
Some people leave the place God has given them and go off looking for a space.
