Gideon and the three Hundred

Standard

Gideon and the men surrounded the camp in the three groups (remember they were up high looking down into the valley).  When Gideon started to blow his trumpet the rest followed.

They blew their trumpets and yelled, “For the Lord and for Gideon!”  Then they broke the jars they were carrying, holding onto the torches with one hand and the trumpet in the other hand shouting, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”

When the Midianites heard this they started yelling and running around.  Then when all the trumpets started again the Lord caused the Midianites to start freaking out and they started to turn on each other with their swords.

The rest that got away were captured by the men of Ephraim by the Jordan because Gideon sent messengers ahead of them to let them know they were coming.

That was the day God saved Gideon and defeated the Midianites.  Without God none of this was possible.  I hope that after this Gideon learned his lesson and stopped worrying.  With God nothing is impossible!

Next time you’re in a tough situation know that God can give you strength and he wants to help you.  Just ask and He will!
