     God can take a nobody and make a somebody. Gideon in the Old Testament is a classic example of an ordinary person that God uses (Judges 6 and 7).

    Gideon went from a farm boy to a national hero and against incredible odds, saved the nation of Israel.

    Israel was at a low point spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally and economically. The Midianites were enemies of the Israelites and 135,000 of them came against Israel.

     We live in a stress-filled world and life seems to get pretty complicated at times. How can we cope with daily stress?

    Observe the life of Jesus and learn from him how to handle stress.
