Re:Verse reading–Judges 7:2-8, 15-22 (day two)
“When they blew 300 trumpets, the Lord set the sword of one against another even throughout the whole army…” Vs. 22a
Never underestimate what God can do with a good brass band! Think about it, they brought down walls in Jericho, and caused an entire army to turn on each other in the story of Gideon. I am sure it wouldn’t surprise anyone if I would wax poetic about that musical power > military power, but let’s just consider how God continues to confound the wise with his unorthodox methods. How will the Lord demonstrate his power, love, and mercy in your life. Are you expecting a Damascus Road experience? Perhaps you are hoping that the Christians of the world will rise up and seize power from the corrupt leaders of our time. What if God chooses some unlikely set of circumstances to bring about his glory. Will you recognize the Lord, or dismiss it out of hand because it wasn’t what you have envisioned. We need to stop trying to outthink God, and let him use us in his infinitely creative ways. Personally, I’m hoping the next time he uses a choir.
