Gideon's army were few in number as against the hosts of the “Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east (that) lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels (that) were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude” (Judges 7:12).
God does not fight with number. All that God requires from man is faith for victory. He is ready and willing at all times to fight for you in the battle of life. Whatever problems or challenges might face you on the pathway of progress; you will reach your goal if you can march forward by faith.
You need faith to advance forward in any adversity. Gideon's army chased their enemies to Jordan and passed over the river; fainted and yet pursuing. The secret of victory is in advancing forward with focus on your goal. When the Israelites got to the red sea, God’s charge to them was the same that they “go forward” (Exodus 14:13-15).
Winners never quit however fierce the battle may be. Achievers never give up; whatever troubles, difficulties and/or problems may come their ways on the path of progress. The student who will harvest success must be ready to weather the storm and get tough with tough situations he/she might encounter as he/she advances to achieve his/her goals. You must be determined to advance forward as a champion, whatever may happen. Only cowards retreat when the battle is fierce.
Challenge: Quitters never win.
Prayer: Dear Lord, give me the courage of a champion to march forward whatever betides.
