Re:Verse passage – Judges 7:23-24, 8:1-9 (day two)
Then Gideon and the 300 men who were with him came to the Jordan and crossed over, weary yet pursuing. 8:4
There are several parts to this ongoing story of Gideon, but don’t miss this part: all the men survived the battle. In a battle every commander weighs the acceptable rate of loss. The unimaginable happened with Gideon and his men. From the very outset against the Midianites, God controlled the narrative. This was never Gideon’s battle. Continue reading in verse 4…they were weary, yet they kept pursuing. Think for a moment the assignment that God has placed upon your heart. Know this, if he has called you to it, he will see you through it. Know this also, it will cost you. Serving will require much from you physically, emotionally, and spiritually…but the outcome is secure. Don’t give up. Trust the one who called you. Now get back out there and pursue.
