Me, myself and I.
We are always on our minds, we naturally think about ourselves before anyone or anything. We are self-absorbed. This must change.
In Judges 7, Gideon is finally ready to trust God and move forward in defeating the Midianite army. There is only one problem, the army that Gideon has is too large.
See, God has a plan, He wants to show Himself to the Israelites and He wants to show Himself to you.
Gideon’s army is large enough, that when they defeat the Midianites they will naturally take the credit for themselves. Self-absorbed
However, God wants the Israelites to be absorbed with Him. Therefore, if God dwindles the Israelite army to such a small number (300) to battle an army that is incredibly large (over 100,000); then when the Israelite’s win the war they will only be able to credit the victory to God. They will GLORY (celebrate) in Him rather than in themselves.
God-absorbed rather than self-absorbed.
