To The Edgy Go The Rewards

So we pushed ourselves over the edge yesterday.

Gideons 300 have pursued the Midianite army out of their country and into history.  So what's next?

The rules of war were clear.  The winning army receives all the losing armies stuff.

Remember that the Midianites were a nomadic people who supported themselves by robbing everyone else.  All those camels that the Israelites couldn't count because there were so many?  Theirs. All the food they stole from them, they got it back.  The tents, the armor, the food, the supplies - all theirs.  Not only did God rid them of their oppressor He also ensured that the nation of Israel was replenished for the winter season.  Seven winters of suffering and starvation were replaced with plenty.

What are you looking for in life?  Where is it?  On the other side of your fears.  When you take your faith and face your fears, you will find what you have been looking for the whole time.

Why do we like reading about the Patriarchs, the Prophets, and Apostles?  They did what we want to do.  Abraham faced the fear of losing his one and only son.  Joseph faced the fear of losing his family.  Moses faced the fear of confronting the strongest ruler in the known world. They all did it the same way - by faith.

What are you going to face today and how are you doing to do it?  Go over the edge and discover what you have been looking for.
