On paper, Call the Nation to Prayer has a relatively small following, but we know that The Lord is drawing the right people to be associated and involved, in what is humanly mission impossible!
In the Bible, God is usually to be seen working amongst small and committed, albeit often initially reluctant groups of people – we have often cited the story of Gideon, in the book of Judges, chapter 6 and 7, who was called by God to save the nation of Israel after they were disobedient, which had led to the Midianites oppressing them for seven long years.
Once Gideon had become convinced of his calling, he then found his army of 32,000 men, first reduced to 10,000, then down to a mere handful – just 300 men!
The story ends when at night, the 300 surrounded the Midianite Camp, broke jars to expose hidden flaming torches and blew trumpets.
Judges Chapter 7 v’s 17-18: “Watch me,” he [Gideon] told them. “Follow my lead. When I get to the edge of the camp, do exactly as I do. When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, then from all around the camp blow yours and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon.’”
As the Israelites carried out their instructions, the Midianites turned, killed each other and fled. Israel pursued, in victory over overwhelming odds!
It is now six days until ‘As One’, a relatively small event – we initially pictured something much larger, but God has dictated otherwise – which, far beyond any human ability to do so, and against all odds, will be a bold declaration for nationwide revival!
For for the Lord, and for the United Kingdom to be saved! Are you a Gideon?!
