He wasn’t raised in a prestigious home. He didn’t have any background as a warrior. His family was poor.
His name: Gideon.
Gideon, the man that God chose to destroy Israel’s worship of false gods single handily. The man that led three hundred men to victory over thousands without drawing a sword. The man that Israel wanted for their king.
God may be calling you to do something that you are certain can’t be accomplished. If you were left to succeed on your own you’d be right. But God is with you. Just as He was with Gideon. Don’t put your trust in yourself. Place all your faith in Him.
God chooses the unlikely to do extraordinary things.
Judges 6 & 7
