    Furthermore, we had the fathers of our flesh to chasten us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days disciplined us as seemed good to them, but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness. Al...

Zero to Hero

  • He said to him, "O Lord, how shall I save Israel? Behold, my family is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house." Yahweh said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midianites as one man." Judges 6:15-16 WEB.

    Gideon was the least in his family, who happened to be the poorest clan in the tribe of Manasseh. Then God chose him to lead a group of three hundred men and defeat a vast Midianite army, whose camels could not even be counted.

    Gideon was scared and hopelessly outnumbered. Outside of God, he had nothing going for him. No one else thought so either. Even his hometown wanted to kill him for destroying baal's altar. Gideon was the least of the least. Yet, with God on his side, he was more than enough. He was given supernatural wisdom to perform a God-given task.

    When the battle started, the enemies became confused and started killing each other. They all turned and ran while Israel attacked them from behind. The Midianites were utterly defeated. After the battle, there were forty years of peace. Gideon, with the help of God, made it happen. God likes to show His power strong in the weak and humble.

    Moses was the most humble man on Earth during his life (Numbers 12:3), David was the least of his family (1 Samuel 16:11). Even Jesus of Nazareth was born in a stable (Luke 2:7). Yet, they became world changers.

    As a child, I was the youngest of thirteen children. I was not considered one of them, for I was a step-child from a previous marriage. If that wasn't confusing enough, my mom told me that I probably wasn't "his" either. Yet, God has taught me over the years that it is not who you are born as, but who you live for that matters. If you surrender your life to Him, you will find your real purpose for being here.

    God can fix everything, and even if all you have to depend on is Him, He is more than enough. He has taken me from sweeping the floor to being the manager in a few months. There have been times when I was out of work and flat broke, I would open my Bible and find that someone had secretly put money in it. I have seen the sick and hurting be instantly healed. I have watched Him take life-crushing situations and turn them around for our good. Things that would make you pinch yourself to be sure that you are still awake.

    Today, you may be the least of the family and feel the weakest. But God can make a hero out of a zero. If you follow His leading, nothing or no one can hold you back, for He is more than enough. So we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:5).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, my life is Yours. Please lead me into all that You have for me to do on the Earth. Provide for me in the desert and lead me out the other side. I choose to put my trust in You. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
