With less than 1%

“The Lord told Gideon, “With these 300 men I will rescue you and give you victory over the Midianites. Send all the others home.

Judges 7:7 NLT


32,000 soldiers formed Gideon’s army.

69% of the soldiers were afraid to go into battle for fight, and they didn’t think twice when they were given the option of returning to their homes.

30.06% of the soldiers, even they weren’t afraid, they weren’t ready to fight because they were overconfident and were not alert to face the enemy.

Only 0.94% of the soldiers were enough in order God to do the impossible; with less than 1% of his army, God gave victory to Gideon.

Gideon had to trust God, he didn’t question either God’s orders; Gideon no doubt that God would give him victory with only 300 soldiers.

Whom are we trusting in? Are we trusting in our resources or in God? Don’t forget that with God nothing is impossible.
