“GOD said to Gideon, “You have too large an army with you. I can’t turn Midian over to them like this–they’ll take all the credit, saying, ‘I did it all myself,’ and forget about me. “Make a public announcement:
‘Anyone afraid, anyone who has any qualms at all, may leave Mount Gilead now and go home.'” Twenty-two companies headed for home. Ten companies were left.”GOD said to Gideon: “I’ll use the three hundred men who lapped at the stream to save you and give Midian into your hands. All the rest may go home.” ” (Judges 2-3,7:7).MSG
How Strong a thing can last depends on its quality not quantity.
It doesn’t matter who or how many you are but what is more Important is, whose you are. Cause your backing equals your standing.
I have heard so many times that “when an antelope has the backing of a lion it can comfront an Elephant.”
In the days of Gideon, All the Midianites, Amalekites and other nations came together and invaded the Land of Israel. Then Gideon the Backing of the LORD’S Spirit, blew a signal on trumpet to assemble all the Tradoc of Isreal to fight against the Enemy.
The next morning “GOD said to Gideon, “You have too large an army with you.”
Gideon was carried away the Number of the Enemies. But He remembered that “With God on our side like this, how can we lose? ” (Romans 8:31).
God does not work with the Majority, Rather one with God is Majority.
He screened the Armies and ” Twenty-two companies headed for home. Ten companies were left. “
But “GOD said to Gideon: “There are still too many. It means God does not need too many people to fight your battle.
It is God’s war, not yours. ” (2 Chronicles 20:15).
The Victory was not theirs, not untill Gideon understood the mystery that “The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Daniel 11:32). then He allowed God to play His role . And a tradoc of 32,000 Men was finally reduced to three hundred men.
Most times we don’t Involve God to Resolve the battle for us but rather we Involve our Uncles, Governnors, Lecturers and other irrelevant multitude. who will take credits to themselves, thereoccupying the position of God in your battle.
Today, I want you to understand that “One with God is Majority” and that “God does not need multitude to fight your battle.”
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for the Privilage of revealing this mystery to me. As I journey through life, Help me to Recognise your presence in every aspect of Life in Jesus’Name.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION: I prophesy into your life today, That every Irrelevant person occupying the Position of God in your life today is being Unseated in Jesus’Name.
