Gideon Vs. The Midianites

I'm always amazed by this story. God uses Gideon and an army of 300 men to take out an army of over 100,000. That's being outnumbered 1 to 3300. I use this story to talk about courage during our Rite Of Passage event. Last year, one of the guys that runs it for me was talking about how in the army, they like to outnumber the enemy by 3 to 1 before they attack. Amazing. I love how God takes away any glory that Gideon could have possibly received by making it obvious that it wasn't just a great military strategy. The strategy was insanely stupid. But because God willed it, it worked. JM
