Gideon going up against an army of 100k with 300 men – falls into the bucket of “more than we can handle” for sure…

“God certainly does give us more than we can handle. And he does it “to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead” (2 Cor. 1:9). If you’re facing overwhelming adversity and you wonder how God can possibly deliver you and work it for your good (Rom. 8:28), then take heart from Judges 7, Romans 8, and 2 Corinthians 1. When God gives you more than you can handle, he is giving you the joy of experiencing his power to do the humanly impossible “so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God” (1 Cor. 2:5).”
