A lot of time people rate success by volume and quantity. Perhaps, this would be fine except the book of Judges 7 defines God’s formula for success. Gideon was about to wage war on the enemy of the Lord. Ironically, at the time, Gideon thought it was necessary to take a large platoon to gain the victory. However, God had a better plan.
On the morning when Gideon was preparing for battle, God told him that his army was too large. There were about 32,000 men of war, ready to inflict harm against their opponent. God decreased that number to 300. This was one percent of what they initially started with. Interestingly, in the end, Gideon and his army gained the victory when they entered the battlefield.
If we really consider what God was seeking to demonstrate, it simply was just how powerful and mighty the Lord is. Many times we enter a battle feeling that we need more than we really have. When God is saying that He is the ultimate power we should possess to conquer the enemy.
The story of Gideon and his army serves as a notice that we should never despise numbers, for little is much when God is in it. This instant, I want to encourage someone who is in a fierce battle on the job, home or in your community, you are equipped to win. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and we will win because God has provided us with an armor which serves as an offensive tool and defensive tool.
Whereas, we live in a time when the morals of society are decaying gradually, we must remain steadfast in our faith, for God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love and a sound mind. This week we celebrate our 8th Year Church Anniversary under the theme: Equipped to Win. The declaration we are sounding loud and strong is that everything attached to us wins because this is our winning season. You will have what you declare. Make it your declaration as well, that in this season you will win. If this word has been a blessing write and let us know. Lighthouse International Ministry.
