ATTACKING WITH GREAT NUMBERS
The Bible tells us that The enemy comes in like a flood (Isaiah 59:19) and we can see him flooding the Israelites with problems when they were being oppressed by the Midianites, the Amalekites, and the people from the East.
This multitude of enemies would flock to Israel As numerous as locusts (Judges 6:5) with their livestock, Camels without number (Judges 6:5), and tents whenever the Israelites had sown. They would then destroy all that they could to ensure that the Israelites did not have any sustenance, sheep, ox or even donkeys left. As a result of their destruction, the Israelites were greatly impoverished. (Judges 6:1-6)
Thus we can see that the enemies of God’s people attack God’s people in great numbers and with great problems so that they can effect great physical damage. They also attack in great numbers to inflict great mental damage by making God’s people loose morale and give up instead of looking for a way to fight back.
Therefore, understand that we do not have to give up, retreat or back down to the enemy’s demands even if he attacks us with millions of problems because as we see in Gideon’s case, God, through His power and the Holy Spirit who lifts up a standard against our enemies when they come in like a flood, can defeat millions of our enemies with minimal effort on our part.
In addition, understand that whenever the devil inundates you with problems, he is not only trying to defeat you physically, but also, and more importantly, he is also trying to defeat you mentally so that you can despair and in effect, help him effect your total defeat.
So, refuse to accept to be defeat mentally, even if you have been temporarily defeated physically. Refuse to be defeated in your mind by replacing all negative, defeatist thoughts with powerful, positive Scriptures such as I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
