The God Margin


It’s time to step out
Face impossible circumstance
Dare to be out numbered 450 to 1
Stand and see what the LORD will do
When the trumpet blows
Enemies will flee and victory is certain
In the God margin

So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outpost of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just as they had posted the watch; and they blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers that were in their hands.  Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers—they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing—and they cried, “The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!”   And every man stood in his place all around the camp; and the whole army ran and cried out and fled.   When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath. –Judges 7:19-22

Heading over to see what the Joy Jar holds today. Every time I read your blog the Lord encourages my heart or touch me.

Blessings in Christ...Susan

Hi Ken,

Blessings to you and your bride. Hope all is well with you. Amen...if the Lord is for us and with us...then whomever is against us doesn't really amount to much in comparison to our God.

Merry Christmas to you! Susan

Hi Janette, I think that I need to take a little of my own advise and stand and see the Lord move in a family member's situation.

Hope that you have a blessed and Merry Christmas!
