Scripture: Judges 7:4-7
Gideon was a man who was willing to serve God, but he struggled to trust God. He was a lot like many of us. When called to lead Israel against the oppressing army of the Midianites, he raised the biggest army he could find. For God it was too many, so God whittled the number down and equipped them to do all that he expected them to do. At 151st Street, our numbers have also been reduced (in a very good cause), but God is still with us to serve him faithfully.
