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.

Praise God! Good Day! "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
The Lord knows what He's doing with us. There are some things that we just have to deal with, so that we don't forget our desperate need for Him. We stop going through the motions, drop down, and get all the way real with God. We may have to start back at the beginning, but He Will show Himself strong on our behalf. #bowdown #firstworksover #step1again
