CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“And the Lord said to Gideon, ‘The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me’’” (Judges 7:2). Gideon gathered a mighty army to go to war against the Midianites; but God had other plans. He asked Gideon to reduce his army to 300 men, and then go and take on the army of 135,000 Midianites. Why? So God could show the Israelites a victory that only He could win. God has a flair for the miraculous. He has no hesitation about showing you supernatural, miraculous works in your life. All that is required on your part is to walk according to the purpose to which He has called you.
Father, thank You that You like to show up, and show off! My God is real, and I serve you willingly!
