And the Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours and save Israel from the hand of Midian; do not I send you?” And he said to him, “Please, Lord, how can I save Israel? Behold my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” And the Lord said to him, “But I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midianites as one man.” (ESV) – Judges 6:14-16
Nosh: God calls us as we are in the present. He judges our capabilities not by our self-perceived inadequacies but by our hearts willingness to follow Him and His instruction. The key to Gideon’s success on the ground is having God’s support and promotion in heaven.
