    But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger. They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning fro...

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. Bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there." Judges 7:2-4 WEB.

    Gideon began with an army of thirty-two thousand men, but by the time the battle started, that number was down to three-hundred. God Himself intentionally took Gideon's reinforcements away and separated them from him. Gideon was not abandoned by the Lord, for it was the will of God for this to happen. In fact, it was God's plan all along.

    We like to bring as large an army as possible, but God prefers to be outnumbered. He likes it that way. In His army, quality is much better than quantity. That was the case of small David defeating giant Goliath. It was the same with Moses, Elijah, Jeremiah, Jonah, Daniel, Paul, and many others. God simply needed one who was faithful to bring the victory.

    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, "This is the work of God." When God saves you from an impossible situation, you will remember that. 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. It's probably not an accident. God has plans to make you shine, and He placed the ones around you that need to be there, then removed the rest. You will come through this, and everyone will know that the Lord is 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. Thank You for accepting me just as I am and 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. 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
