Judges 7:1-8:17

How long will it take me to understand that I’m am just a spectator along for the ride when I am confronting my enemies. From Gideon to King Jehoshaphat, God is in the business of “small” beginnings, small army’s, ‘fraidey cat people, and wavering believers. He is in the business of working for them and through them in spite of their insufficiencies because in Him is everything we need.

He said, Hearken, all Judah, you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat. The Lord says this to you: Be not afraid or dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's. Tomorrow go down to them. Behold, they will come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the ravine before the Wilderness of Jeruel. You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord [Who is] with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you. (2 Chronicles 20:15-17 AMP)

As long as I know that God is sending me, that I am on God’s side, and not thinking that He is on mine, then it is God calling the charge, God doing the fighting and I’m only along for the ride. How cool is that?

It has to be God for three-hundred men to successfully take on and win, an army of 135,000.

I keep thinking that would I drive with my eyes closed!? No, I drive while looking ahead to see what is coming. Only a fool would close his eyes and drive. Also would I drive with fear and anxiety? No, becuase if I did I would be going so slow and my movements jerky and it would be worse off for me. But if I move forward with wisdom and look where Im going and relax my body trusting the road ahead and the car beneath and the God above I can reach my destination.
