Gideon the Conqueror . . .really?

I love the story of Gideon.

God took a reluctant hero and changed Israelite history.

He wasn't Hercules.
He wasn't Napoleon.
He wasn't Patton.
He wasn't Petraeus.

He WAS Gideon, going in the power of the LORD.

Who else could win a battle against thousands with 300 scared men, a pitcher, a trumpet, and a torch? It HAD to be the LORD, working through him.

It makes me wonder what God is waiting to do with me, little old plain me, if only I would let HIM.
