In December, 1944, American forces were surrounded by German troops at Bastogne, Belgium. The German general demanded immediate and unconditional surrender. For the Americans, the situation appeared hopeless. Supplies were low and morale was lower.
Enter General Anthony McAuliffe. He assembled the 101st Airborne Division and surveyed the situation. Then he told his men, “Men, we are surrounded by the enemy. We have been awarded the greatest opportunity ever presented to any army. We can attack in any direction.”
Do you ever feel like you are surrounded by the enemy? The answer? Fight back. But don’t do battle without the General on your side.
Recovery Step: Read this verse three times. “Nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win the battle, whether he has many warriors or only a few” (1 Samuel 14:6).
