    Jehovah’s spirit enveloped Gideon. —Judg. 6:34.

    The book of Judges is replete
    with accounts of humans who
    “from a weak state were made powerful.â€￾ (Heb. 11:34) By means
    of holy spirit, God impelled Gideon to fight in behalf of His people.

    The army Gideon assembled,
    however, was outnumbered by the Midianite menace 4 to 1.Yet, Jehovah twice decreed that Gideon scale back the army until the enemy outnumbered Israelite fighters 450 to 1.
    (Judg.7:2-8; 8:10) If a stunning victory
    was to take place, who could brag that it was wrought by human effort or wisdom? Jehovah’s power to save is infinite. He can deliver his people from any predicament,even doing so by using those who appear weak or helpless.

    Sometimes
    we may feel outnumbered or in desperate straits. However,we can draw abundant guidance and reassurance from God’s Word and through his spirit-directed congregation.
    (Rom. 8:31, 32) Jehovah’s loving promises fortify our faith and convince us that he really is our Helper!

    Two Scriptures come to mind: 2 Corinthians 4:7 - "However, we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the power beyond what is normal may be God's and not that out of ourselves."

    Philippians 4:13 - "For all things I have the strength by virtue of him who imparts power to me."

    I pray that Jehovah helps all of us to stay spiritually strong both now and during the events of the future. I think that we will have a special ministry soon, where we will be speaking not so much to householders but to brothers/sisters inside the congregation, as events may not unfold in the manner that they expect them to.
