Gideon's army was getting ready to fight their enemies who were called the Midianites. The Midianites had a huge army. Gideon could only gather 32,000 men together. But God told Gideon, "You have too many men, send home everyone who is afraid to fight". God sent Gideon with an army of 300 men to fight the huge Midianite army. God told Gideon's men to leave their weapons behind and take along only jars, trumpets and torches. They hid their torches in the jars, and walked quietly around the sleeping Midianite army until they were surrounded, and they waited quietly for Gideon's signal. Suddenly they heard Gideon blow his trumpet, and they broke their jars so their torches would burn bright and blew their trumpets as loud as they could. The Midianites woke up, saw they were surrounded- and they were so scared they got up and started running away! Gideon and his 300 men drove away the Midianite army without a single weapon. All God's people knew He had saved them. He saves you too.
