Re:Verse passage – Judges 7:12-22 (day seven)
“Each stood in his place around the camp; and all the army ran, crying out as they fled.” vs 21
Imagine yourself as one of the soldiers in Gideon’s army. Imagine the confusion as you watch 32,000 fellow soldiers dwindle to 10,000 then again to 300. Imagine the feeling in the pit of your stomach as you marched up on a camp of 100,000+ with only a jar of clay, a trumpet, and a torch. Imagine the relief as you watch your battle be fought for you right before your eyes.
How many of you didn’t have to imagine this? How many of you have lived it? You found yourself asking “God what are you doing?! I don’t see your plan!” Then you begin to fret because you feel ill prepared for the task at hand, only to be relived when you see God had already fought your battle for you.
