2The LORD said to Gideon, "The people who are with you are too many for Me to give Midian into their hands, for Israel would become boastful, saying, 'My own power has delivered me.'
This is amazing Story of how God orchestrated HOW HE was going to get the glory.
It's always easy for us to see God's hand when we know the whole story.
Imagine for a moment what Thoughts were going through Gideon's mind when he knew the task at hand. He needed an Army to defeat the Midianites - God dwindled his army to 300 men. Yet, in obedience to God the Battle was won. Great Story to read.
Did Gedeon understand God's Plan? Meaning, did he just trust and obey God no matter how it seemed to him?
This story came to me tonight... I believe once again, God is imparting into my heart TO STOP looking at circumstances aka "road blocks" and just have faith and DO what I KNOW is right.
LISTEN to Him and His word. HE HAS A PLAN! Do what he's put before me (opportunity, vision). Even if it seems crazy and un do able.
I know my personality is to want to know the ending first. Ha!
I really do know the ending. It's all about standing in HIS presence some day and
wanting God to say. "Well done, my good and Faithful servant".
