Judges 7:16 NKJV - "Then he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet into every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and torches inside the pitchers."
300 men against an army of 135,000! (See Judges 8:10). The ratio is 450 to 1! Every soldier Gideon had would have to face 450 of the enemy. Now, think of their weaponry: trumpets, clay pots, and torches! Yet, Gideon's band of 300 won!!
Of course, God was on their side and even "one with God is a majority!" It's often been said that "God doesn't need a lot to do a lot." What do you have in your possession? Would you surrender it to God and ask Him to use it for His glory? Sure, you're not likely to go out and face an army and with a horn, a glass jar, and a flashlight! But God has given you something He can use to help you win a spiritual battle IF you're willing to trust Him. What kind of "battle" are you facing today? Ask God to take what you have and use it to give you victory for His glory and for your joy!
