A Prayer for Little Miracles
By Greg Laurie
“Bear in mind your leaders, who spoke the phrase of God to you. Take into consideration the end result of their lifestyle and imitate their religion.” –
The Israelites lived in fear of their enemies the Midianites. The Midianites had numbers so substantial, they’d been described within the Bible as getting “as varied as locusts” (Judges six:5). They’d been in every single place, and the kids of Israel had been considerably outnumbered.
They required to defeat the Midianites, however they required anyone to guide them. So God found a person named Gideon. After we’re very first launched to Gideon in Judges six, he was hiding from his enemies, threshing wheat. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon and talked about, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!” (verse 12).
I can envision Gideon in search of about and saying, “Who? Are you chatting with me?” If there was one thing Gideon was not at that second, it was a mighty man of valor. However through a collection of occasions in Gideon’s life, he was reworked and have become a person of wonderful braveness. He summoned the folks right this moment to enter battle towards the Midianites.
Then the Lord got here to Gideon one explicit day and delivered a message that I’m sure he wasn’t happy to listen to: his military was additionally main. Maybe Gideon talked about, “You’re joking! I admire it while you joke, Lord! Additionally main! We’re presently outnumbered, and we’re additionally main!”
However God wasn’t kidding. He didn’t need any particular person to say they defeated the Midianites of their private power. So He gave Gideon a check for the fellows that will skinny out the ranks. Within the end, Gideon was left with 300 guys. And with 300 guys God defeated the Midianites.
You see, our numbers don’t have to be substantial. God can do rather a lot with a tiny. And God can use tiny folks right this moment to do main gadgets. You might be by no means ever additionally smaller for God to make use of, however you may be additionally main.
Heavenly Father, there are days once we have no idea what to do. When all path seems to guide us nowhere. We ask that you simply information us in these difficult cases. Help us to stand up as brave leaders. Give us the power and knowledge to realize your will and to face agency upon your instructions. In Jesus’ Title, Amen.
