Encouraging Thought for the Week
When it comes to faith in God, the odds are always irrelevant.
I love the Story of Gideon, building up an army of Israelites to take on a host of Midianite invaders. The Lord said to him, “you have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boost against me that her own strength has saved her.” (Judges 7:2)
Too many men? Did I hear you right Lord? Yes, he heard correctly. God didn’t want anything approaching even odds for this encounter. So prior to his very first military encounter, Gideon was obliged to send almost all of his soldiers home, leaving him just three hundred men against a vast and powerful army. But we know what happened don’t we. Using only three hundred men, the Lord easily routed the enemy.
It doesn’t matter what you are facing, people, God is more than adequate!
