Getting More Done

This morning I pressed 15 shirts and two tablecloths (only because I ironed the wrong one). Afterwards, I made my grocery list. I have never been this productive before!

What changed?

Each day I started saying, “Lord, I give this day to you.” He can take a small number of hours, or soldiers, and make them be enough to finish the job.

With 300 men, Gideon captured the princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb; and then captured the kings Zebah and Zalmunna. Judges 8:10 tells us 120,000 men had died and Gideon went after the 15,000 who remained…with only 300 men!


We read it on Monday…Joshua 23:10, “One…shall put to flight a thousand…” When God is fighting for you, 300 men will equal an army of 300,000!

Judges 7:2, “The Lord said to Gideon, ‘The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, “My own hand has saved me.”‘” ESV

Dear Lord,

As we prepare to celebrate your birthday, remind us that we will get more done with your help. And we will be careful to give you all of the glory.
