Wesley's Notes for Judges 7:17


7:17 Look on me - For though two hundred of his men were placed on other sides of the camp; yet they were so disposed, that some persons, set as watchmen, might see what was done, and give notice to the rest to follow the example.

    Doesn't take a lot of fight....it does take a lot of faith

    Verse 3~Those who were fearful were not made to remain and fight. This showed compassion on Jehovah God's part.
  • Stephen Botts
    The original '300'! God uses the weak to confound the strong!
  • Christine Awah
    The first victory was because Gideon heard from God . It was God's time to conquer for His children. Our victories are won in the spirit realm primarily before the physical experience. See verse 13 The Medianite dreams of defeat before getting to the battle.
  • Mike Ogunleye
    Our God is a great God, He deliver his own from their enemy. Despite the fact that Gideon's faith was shaken at the beginning the good Lord proves himself that he is the Lord.
    When we surrender our will to his will he will surely take us out of our trouble.
  • Angela
    If God wants to fight a battle, He doesn't work with majority but only those that are ready for Him
