    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

Outnumbered

  • Yahweh said to Gideon, 'The people who are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel brag against me, saying, 'My own hand has saved me.' Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return and depart from Mount Gilead.' ' So twenty two thousand of the people returned, and ten thousand remained. Yahweh said to Gideon, 'There are still too many people.' Judges 7:2 WEB

    Gideon started out with an army of thirty-two thousand men, but that number was down to three hundred at the start of the actual battle. For God Himself took them away and separated them from Gideon, intentionally. Gideon was not abandoned, and it was completely God's will for this to happen. In fact, it was God's plan all along.

    We like to bring as big an army as possible, but God likes to be outnumbered. He prefers it this way. In His army, quality is better than quantity. When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will cause His person to stand through it and everyone looking on will have to say that this is the work of God. When God saves you from an impossible situation, you will remember that well, but when it is all easy and effortless, where is the challenge in that?

    So you may set out to do something with a terrific group of people, and then find that it is just you and a handful left. This is probably not an accident. God has plans to make you shine and He has placed the ones around you that need to be there, and removed the rest. You will come through this and everyone will know that the Lord is truly with you. All you have to do is keep pressing forward into what He has given you to do and you will be successful.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You so much for all that You do for me. I am so glad that You accept me just as I am, but will also help me become the best version of myself. Please put those around me that need to be there and remove the ones that should not be, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
