    Judah said to his brothers, 'What profit is it if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come, and let's sell him to the Ishmaelites, and not let our hand be on him; for he is our brother, our flesh.' His brothers listened to him. Midianites who were merchants passed by, and they drew and lifted...

    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end. You shall call on me, and you shall go and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart. Je...

More Than Enough

  • Yahweh said to Gideon, By the three hundred men who lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand; and let all the people go every man to his place. So the people took food in their hand, and their trumpets; and he sent all the men of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the three hundred men: and the camp of Midian was beneath him in the valley. Judges 7:7 WEB

    Facing an army that could not even be counted, Gideon and his men walked down to the water. He had started this mission with 32,000 men, which was already too small a number. Then God told Gideon to send anyone that was fearful back home, and over two-thirds (22,000) of his army left (Judges 7:3).

    Gideon had 10,000 men who stayed with him for the upcoming battle, but God told him that it was still too many. So Gideon took them down to the water, and there God sorted them again. When Gideon came up from the water, he had 300 men left with him. God said they were all he needed to accomplish his mission, and they were.

    Gideon had more than enough men with him, but he did not realize it. He was scared when he had 32,000 men in his army. Yet he was victorious with only 300. It was enough. Jesus took a few fish and fed thousands of people (Matthew 15:38, Mark 6:44). Peter preached a sermon that caused 3,000 people to come to the Lord in one meeting (Acts 2:41).

    Sometimes we have more than enough right in front of us, yet we do not see it. We often learn that God has already provided what we need, we just don't know how to use it, or we let our fears cause us to not believe Him. Our limitation is always what we do not know, instead of what we do not have. 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge' (Hosea 4:6).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me see the things that You have already placed in my life and teach me to use them properly. Lord I know that You know best and I submit to Your will for my life. Teach me what I need to know. Guide me into all that You have for me. I am Yours, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Galatians 5:13 "You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love." ~ Our next fun theme will be 'Freedom' or 'Liberty to Love' and is open wide for creative interpretation as always. Also, we encourage you to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos this week reflect my Liberty to Love Nature and in particular, butterflies, the beautiful humming bird and pretty yellow finches that came to spend some time with us last weekend. It helped me feel my mom's energy and brought much peace. Thanks again for those who have continued to hold our family in prayer. Have a wonderful week, do enjoy Independence day safely (if you happen to be in the USA and celebrate the 4th of July) and take some time to serve one another humbly in Love. God bless!
