    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

Three Hundred

  • And the LORD said to Gideon, 'With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.' So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the 300 men. Judges 7:7 ESV

    Gideon had begun his journey with over 32,000 men. Now he stood with only three hundred facing an enemy army of over 135,000. He was afraid, but followed God one command at a time. It was a crazy plan; they were going to sneak up on a giant enemy army while they were sleeping, then use trumpets and hidden torches to surprise them, but then what'

    It worked. When they blew the trumpets and smashed the jars to reveal the torches, the enemy panicked and started killing each other. Before long, they ran from the battlefield, broken and defeated. Gideon and the men of Israel pursued them and completely defeated Midian and their kings. From this victory, the land had rest for forty years.

    When God is on your side, it is not what you have or how much of it that will determine your outcome. When Gideon awoke the giant sleeping army, they could have easily turned and killed him. It was God that fought the battle and He gave Gideon the victory. You only have to follow one step at a time to win this battle. Don't stop, don't turn back, keep putting one foot in front of the other one and you will come out a winner.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, be my guide today. Help me to hear Your voice like Gideon did and give me the grace to obey it, in the name of Jesus.
