Judges 7:7 – A Spiritual Adventure

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with My Faithful Assistant

Judges 7:7 – The Lord said to Gideon, “I will deliver you with the 300 men who lapped”.

This passage illustrates an important point: God is looking for people who will “stand”. When the hosts of Midian came against the Israelites, Gideon gathered together a large army of 32,000 men. Then God reduced them to a mere handful. Of the 32,000, there were only 300 hundred whom God could trust. He saw that they were men who would stand and never quit, so He dismissed the rest. And with just a small army of three hundred, He proceeded to discomfit and rout the Midianites.

God has always done His greatest work in and through a comparatively small number of people. This is why, when it comes to spiritual victories, we forget the idea of numbers. What God wants is men and women who are prepared to “stand”, whose feet are “shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace”. He will not entrust great responsibility to people whom He knows will not “stand”, for that would be an exercise in fruitlessness.

Are you standing for God – in the environment in which God has put you? Or are you ready to stand? You cannot stand until you are prepared to stand. It begins with a firm attitude which then issues into resolute action. As in Gideon’s day, the Lord is looking for people who will take their stand on His Word, come what may, and commit themselves to doing what He asks even though they may not feel like it or see the sense of it. Are you such a one? If you are, then I predict that ahead of you is an exciting spiritual adventure.

Let’s Pray: O God, help me not to miss the highest because of my spiritual unpreparedness. Help me to be ready for all that You have for me – even before I see it. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
