Am thinking about Gideon today.
From the Old Testament.
He was a nobody.
But God chose Gideon to lead the Lord's army
against the enemy.
The enemy far outnumbered Gideon's little home-made army.
And God began whittling away at Gideon's army.
He couldn't figure it out.
Don't You want me to win, Lord?
he must have thought.
"The battle is Mine," said God Almighty.
God downsized the army three times
until there only 300 men left to fight against the giant army of enemies.
And God confused the enemies, until they began to fight each other
and lost the battle.
Gideon won with only 300 men.
God really does know what He's doing!
Perhaps He's downsizing some areas in your life.
Those things that make you feel secure.
Though you may never understand . . .
can you trust without understanding?
The mark of a mature Christian is to
accept God's ways
without having to understand them.
Let me know your thoughts.
