God is raising up an army of Gideons. He is using “the least of these” to destroy the works of the enemy.
Many, like Gideon, have said, “O my Lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about?”
The Lord has been preparing us for the harvest in the winepress.
He is using all those that will continue and press through the crushing, and allow the pruning and refining of the Holy Spirit. What the enemy has done to try and destroy you, the Lord is using it to produce the new wine in you.
Just as the intensity of the warfare has increased, so is the intensity of His presence and glory fire. See the soldier in the pile of dry bones.
“The Lord is with you, O valiant warrior.”
