    No one puts new wine into old wine skins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wine skins, and both are preserved. Luke 5:37-38 WEB (Paralleled in: Matthew 9:17, Mark 2:22).The most radical change rec...

    Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I don't make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time!" When he saw that, he arose,...

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 7:7'8 WEB.

    Facing an enemy army that couldn't 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 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 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 didn't realize it. Gideon 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 can't see it. We often learn that God has already provided what we need. We either don't know how to use it or let our fears cause us not to believe Him. Our limitation is always what we don't know instead of what we don't have. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me see the things 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. Please 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: '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
