“The hosts of Midian had come up, and a large army of about 32,000 was gathered together by Israel. But God reduced that army to a mere handful. Of the 32,000 there were only 300 whom God could trust. He knew these would stand, that they would never quit, that they would never compromise. So He dismissed the rest, and with the little 300, the remnant, He discomfited and routed the hosts of Midian. God has always done His greatest work through a remnant. Get rid of the notion of numbers. What God wants is a man or a woman who is prepared to ‘stand’, whose feet are ‘shod with the equipment of the gospel of peace’.”

“The Christian Soldier” - D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones Baker Books 1977 ‘Stand Fast’
