Hi, my name is Gideon. I am from one of the lowliest families in the Manasseh tribe, and this is my story
My story started because the Israelites were worshipping the Canaanite gods once again, and God sent an angel down to me and said "The Lord is with you, mighty warrior"Judges 6:12, and God asked me to save his people from the Midians, and that is when I was given the nickname Jerubbaal.
After God told me these things I immediately set up a huge army and started getting food and supplies ready for war, but when I started marching with my troops God said "You have too many soldiers with you for me to deliver Midian into their power, lest Israel vaunt itself against me and say, “My own power saved me" Judges 7:2 so I sent some troops back and I ended up with 300 soldiers.
FInally God said "Go, descend on the camp, for I have delivered it into your power", so that night I took my troops to the camp and we all had torches and I divided the troops into three divisions so it looked like we had a huge army and usually in battle only officers carried torches and that confused the Midianites and they started fighting each other which made it a easy victory for us.
The main idea of my story was to save the Israelites and to show them that God will always be with us we just have to listen to him and he will help us with whatever we need.
