possibly inspiring legend

Don't mistake this for preaching, but it does happen to be from the Bible.

*ahem*

So in the book of Judges, Israel is doing pretty lousy. There's barbarians on the rampage (the Midianites). We have our friend Gideon, who's a farm boy minding his own business, and an angel appears to him. The angel says: "G-d is with you, mighty hero of Israel."

Gideon's response: whaddaya mean G-d is with us?! The country's a mess right now and Israel is getting stomped. And why do you call me hero? Do I look like a hero to you?

The angel says: "Go, save your people."

Awesome. Not often I feel quite so... good about a bible story.
I think I'm missing the point of the story.
