Thursday 6.28.12

Regardless of how we see things we cannot see how God is going to work in our lives.  We usually live off of a fear or look at the negative but God sees the big picture.  Do we underestimate His power?  The One who made the earth,moon, and stars?  The lakes, canyons, mountains and every living thing.  Yet, we still question him.  Sometimes our battles in life seem like they have already got the best of us but if we allow God to fight them for us, we have already won.  Read in Judges how God won the battle for Gideon against the Midianites.  The numbers were 300 men for Gideon vs. 135,000 Midianites.
After looking at those numbers it is like the fans leaving the football stadium in the fourth quarter when their team is down because they think the game is already over.  With God, ALL things are possible.  Gideon won the war with the help of the Lord!

When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior. ”
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.”
The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.
The Lord answered, “I will be with you , and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”
Judges 6:12-16
