“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” -Samuel Adams
God does not need a majority to prevail, but rather a minority. If you look at men of God in the Bible, many of them stood alone, but God did big and mighty things through them.
God didn’t need a majority to go to the face of Pharaoh and tell him to let My people go? (Exodus 9:1). No! God sent Moses and his brother to go face Pharaoh. Although it took lots of judgments upon Egypt (Exodus 7), in the end, the Israelites were finally set free.
What about David and Goliath? (1 Samuel 17) Neither Saul nor his army would fight the Philistines because of the giant, Goliath. But this little shepherd boy named David, who was but a youth, came up to him and said, “Who is this man to defy the armies of the living God?”
David had already killed a lion and a bear, but when he said this to them, nobody believed him. His brothers, especially, didn’t believe that this shepherd boy could take on a giant. But even the most unlikely person, with God on his side, did take down a giant.
How could David do this? God was on his side and gave him the strength to deal with his enemies. Scripture tells us that with God, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). With God on his side, David was in the majority.
Remember Gideon when he had 3,000 men in his army to defeat the enemy? (Judges 6) God was with Gideon, and wanted His people to know that the victory was not because of anything they did (because of their many numbers), but because God gave them the victory. So, therefore, Gideon had to cut down his men to only 300 and they won the day and their freedoms (2 Corinthians 3:17).
