“And the LORD told Gideon, “With the three hundred men who lapped I will rescue you, and will hand over the Midianites to you. Let all the other people go, each man to his home.” – JUDGES 7:7
Just like the Midianites knew their might wouldn’t win against Gideon and His army; the enemy knows very well He cannot overtake you.
You might have so much to handle. More than your capability, your comprehension and many at times, more than your faith. That’s when complication sets in. That’s when the confusion and the miserableness sets in. That’s when nothing makes sense. How Lord? How can this battle be won? How can I overcome? How can this prayer be answered? How can a done deal be reversed for my favor? How can my family, so staunch be touched? How can my marriage have hope? How can I conceive when everything says I cannot? How can I hope when I have no strength? How can I be good when all around is bad? How can I stop this struggle when my whole self aches?
Gideon asked too, “How is it possible to fight against an army of 100,000 trained soldiers, when we have just 300? God you make no sense. God you make it even more difficult.”
You see, our issue is with trusting someone who didn’t need anyone to part the Red Sea, feed the people in the wilderness or to bring the Jericho walls down. He did it all by Himself and for them.
So for us who ask a how let’s just listen to what has been destined for us.
“This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands.”
“This can be nothing other the Word spoken by (put your name), the child of the Most High God. He has given victory to her/(him) and the whole solution into his/(her) hands. We have lost and she/(he) has won, because God is on his/(his) side”.
God doesn’t want any of us to boast. So, the best we can do is be the least, the insignificant and a servant for Him to be exalted and do the impossible for us and through us.
