For the Glory of God - A Visualization of Gideon vs. Midian

In the book of Judges God's power and glory is put on full display on the many occasions he saves the nation of Israel despite their lack of faith, disobedience, and idolatry.

I've read and heard the story of Gideon countless times but as I was reading through it today the sheer size of the task at hand, and absolute improbability of victory struck me. It's almost impossible to comprehend taking 300 men into battle against an army of over 130,000.

What does that even look like? It looks like the vast glory of God on display for all to see.
