Jud. 7:2 “And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.”
So the plans for Operation Smash-Midian are under way. But the Israelites are woefully short in numbers compared to Midians (1 vs. 4). And you can probably imagine Gideon’s surprise when the Lord finally speaks to him saying “Gideon, you’ve got way too many men!” Have such words ever been heard before going into a battle? What war has there ever been when being hopelessly outnumbered, the word goes forth to cut the numbers down yet again? In the natural it seems absurd! In the spiritual it is the very thing God wants to teach us!
The Lord will use testing situations to bring us to the point of weakness. These are the situations when we can no longer rely on the natural numbers. And then we see what God can really do! And we will finally realized that being with the all-powerful God is all we need to win!
