God of the Impossible ~ Jud. 7:1-7

Judges 7:1-7 Gideon's Army is Chosen
Interesting how the message at church yesterday was about God doing the impossible and then this morning reading about Gideon's army going from 32,000 men to a mere 300, by God's plan.
It would have been impossible for Gideon and the Israelites to defeat their enemies with 300 men on their own strength--but God was fighting with them and wanted them to recognize His strength and might, not their own!
"The Lord said to Gideon, 'With the 300 men that lapped I will save you and give
the Midianites into your heands'" Jud. 7:7.
So God made a promsie to Gideon and then Gideon had a choice, do I trust and obey? or do I keep these men and attack?
If we are going to experience God's promises, we must have faith in Him and be obedient to His commands! His plan is just and perfect, and sometimes won't make sense to us.
Deut 29:29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things
revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the
words of this law.
