Daily Devotional
February 26
So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.
Judges 7:8
The odds went from 4:1 to 14:1 to 450:1 as only three hundred men were allowed to move with Gideon into battle against the Midianites. We read of those same odds in 1 Kings 18, where Elijah alone was victorious against 450 prophets of Baal.

Maybe today you feel as though the odds are stacked terribly against you, that your circumstances look impossible. Rejoice! Be glad! God has set you up to bring you through and to show Himself strong. That’s His intention, that’s His purpose for you - to put you in an impossible situation so He can show you and those around you just how strong, how wonderful, and how glorious He is.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
