    When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most assuredly, I tell you, they have received their reward. Matthew 6:5 WEBIt was a hot summer day in the South and Dad and I were wo...

    But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, and stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and threw them out of their borders. But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came to Iconium. The disciples were filled with joy and with ...

Zero to Hero

  • And he said to him, Please, Lord, how can I save Israel? Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my fathers house. 16 And the LORD said to him, But I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midianites as one man. Judg. 6:15-16 ESV

    Gideon was the least in his family who was the poorest clan in Manasseh. 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, hopelessly outnumbered, and outside of God, had nothing going for him. It turned out that when he had just God, it was more than enough.

    When the battle started, the enemies turned on each other and then ran. 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 meekest man on the earth during his life (Num 12:3), David was the least of his family (1 Sam 16:11). Even Jesus was born in a stable (Luke 2:7). They were world changers.

    Today you may be the least of the family and feel the weakest, but God can make you go from zero to hero. If you follow His leading, no thing or no one can hold you back. 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 13:56 ESV)
