With Trumpets and Torches

“So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when they had just set the watch. And they blew the trumpets and smashed the jars that were in their hands. Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the jars. They held in their left hands the torches, and in their right hands the trumpets to blow. And they cried out, “A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!” Every man stood in his place around the camp, and all the army ran. They cried out and fled.
(Judges 7:19-21 ESV)

God defeated the mighty army of the east– which had as many “people as sand on the seashore”, with only three hundred men carrying trumpets and torches.

God had already won the battle: He just wanted someone to carry the trumpets and torches.

God has already won The Battle: let us allow His voice to be heard and His Light to shine in us.
