Judges 8:4 When Gideon came to the Jordan, he and the three hundred men who were with him crossed over, exhausted but still in pursuit.
Thank God, Gideon never let go of the mission. I believe he heard God telling him, “Keep going, Gideon. Fight for your children. Fight for your city. Yes, the victory is yours, but I am calling you to trust me by moving forward.” Whatever battle you are facing today, God is saying the same to you. God is speaking to you as he would to the 300: “I want you to set your heart and mind to battle an enemy ten times bigger than you. You can’t overcome this enemy on your own. But I’m going to give you something they don’t have.” When we trust in God beyond our own capability, he provides all strength to finish the battle and he does it in a way that brings all glory to himself.
We have to get on our knees in prayer and whatever he calls us to do, he will supply all strength to accomplish. Only then will the world see God’s miraculous triumph in a people “exhausted yet pursuing.” Today, boasts in this one thing alone: “God has brought about this victory. He has shown us he is the source of all life, power, victory. And we give him all glory, knowing he will draw all men to himself.”
