As one man -4
Judges 6:16 “And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites AS ONE MAN.”
Joshua 11: 22 “There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained”
Joshua did excellently well. He was an exceptional leader who eventually led the children of Israel into the Promised Land and not only that, he also divided the land as an inheritance for them.
Unfortunately, he didn’t completely destroy the Anakims. He left “few, weak and harmless” ones in Gath. But guess what? Few years down the line, this happened:
1Samuel 17:23 “…behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them.”
Those few, weak and harmless folks became a strong force that threatened the corporate existence of Israel. Goliath came from Gath!
Beloved, what is your disposition towards your main assignment? You cannot afford to waste the resources of heaven.
As we round up this piece, I want to point your attention to something in our focal scripture again:
Judges 6:16 “And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee…”
The truth of the matter is that God already knew in advance that the enemy can be so intimidating and scary, so He gave us His word, “Surely I will be with you”!
By using the word “Surely”; God was practically “swearing” to Gideon that He will help him. The battle will take two personalities, Gideon and God!
A wise man said, “One with God is majority”. Friend, your one man battle will take you cooperating with God to win. All God want from us is to kick start the process in the place of prayer and fight the good fight of faith.
You may be one man physically but you are never alone! God is with you!
Love you BiG
