Do you ever feel as though you are doing the Gideon? No, it is not a new line dance; it is more of a dance with God.
Do you remember Gideon from Judges 6-7? Arguably the weakest man in all of Israel, God chose him to deliver the Israelites from the Midianites who had been oppressing the Israelites savagely for seven years. But God wanted to make sure that the Israelites saw clearly that it was God who was their deliverer, no one else. After choosing the weakest man as their leader, God asked Gideon to gather an army. When 32,000 men had gathered, God had Gideon tell all the men that if they were afraid, they should return to their families. 22,000 did so. God then told Gideon that there were still too many men, and he instructed Gideon to take the men down to the water to drink. The Lord told Gideon to “separate those who lap the water with their tongues like a dog from those who kneel down to drink,” and He then instructed Gideon to send home all those who lapped with their tongues. That left only three hundred soldiers. Three hundred Israelite soldiers against what is believed to have been hundreds of thousands of Midianites. Though the Bible is not specific about the number of Midianite soldiers, Judges 7:12 tells us that the enemy “had settled in the valley, thick as locusts. Their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore.”
