Gideon

We can all take a lesson from Gideon.  He had a major inferiority complex.  He was in the least of the 12 tribes of Israel and the least in his father’s house.  However, God called him a mighty man of valor!!  And although he needed a lot of confirmation, he did answer the call. But when he answered the call, God used him to defeat Israel’s enemies.  And God used much less force than man would deem as necessary.  It wasn’t strength that won out, but intelligence.  God used only 300 men to defeat a cast of thousands!!  And he weeded the soldiers out in a most unlikely way.  Gideon felt highly unqualified.  However, when God calls us, he equips us and we accomplish far more with God than we ever could by ourselves.
