Gideon’s Three Hundred
He shared that the wisest thing we can do is to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit. Learn to love the “Presence of God.” We need leaders who enter into the fullness of what God has to give. We must have open ears, not lip service or “Religion,” but listening ears to hear the voice of God and following His direction.
God gave Moses a plan. Here were a million people with no food and too many people for one man to council. His father-in-law told Moses to delegate chosen leaders over groups of thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens to judge the people. These trusted men were filled with the Holy Spirit and with wisdom.
Don’t say four months until the harvest, but look up because the fields are white.
An angel appeared to a shy and timid man named Gideon and said, “The Lord is with you, O valiant warrior.” Gideon argued with the angel and finally after testing, Gideon agreed to go into battle. He knew he was weak and helpless and unless God went with him all would fail.
God said the army is too large, tell all who are afraid to go home, and 22,000 went leaving 10,000. God said there are still too many. After the final test only 300 men were left in the army. God said, “I will save
with these 300. Israel
Oh what unbelief was in Gideon, so he asked for a sign. God is not discouraged even if we ask for a sign.
God knew if Gideon went to battle with a large army, they would take all the glory. Now they must depend on God and go with His plan.
In life at times it seems like all have deserted the army and gone home. Only a few faithful workers are left. Our hearts begin to fill with fear because it seems we have no team. God says, start with little and allow God to show up.
We say, “Where are the miracles?” God says “Go and I will deliver.” He will perform that which He has said.
Be a people who love the preaching of the Gospel and put God to the test. Fill me with your presence and power.
Please understand that you are Gideon’s 300, and because the angel of the Lord showed up with the declaration, “Go in the Might of God.
Your assignment: Do not cease to give thanks for each other. Pray for your Pastor for his health, strength, and for his sweet sleep and rest.
Encourage one another and decide not be become comfortable with status quo.
Pastor Roger shared that he was at the dam on Wednesday morning, and counted those who showed up to pray over the city of
. There was only a small band willing to pray
and decree over their city. Oroville
Now this small army is going into the streets to walk and pray. Let us shake our world.
May the Father of Glory give to you eyes and ears to understand the Glory of God. There is a well that we must tap into it; to open the flow of the Word of God.
Go forth and Expect the Supernatural.
