Today’s Readings: Judges 7:1‐8:17, Luke 23:13‐43, Psalm 97:1‐98:9, Proverbs 14:7‐8
Judges 7:2 The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’”
- God did not want to work through an army of many.
- If the people were victorious with many, they would boast in themselves instead of in God.
In most areas of my life, I try to gather as many qualified men for battle as possible. In my ministry at camp, I am always praying that God would stack my team with a lot of incredibly talented and Godly young adults. God often chooses to use the least of these to do the greatest things.
I want God to use me in areas where I cannot boast in my own strength.
Can you testify of a Gideon victory in your own life?
