1 Chronicles 11:11-47
David had 3 Mighty men. Men that changed the history of Israel. Men that did not flee when things got tough but instead, in the middle of struggle and brim of survival showed COURAGE, OBEDIENCE and a desire to please their master.
When they were under attack Eleazar stood ground on a patch of barley and would not give more to the enemy.
Note – everyone else did the rassional, logical and clever thing. They ran!
When David only longed for water, they risked personal safety and went to get it for him, just because he uttered a desire. So irrasional that even david refused to drink the water.
Note – their luxury and security lost value because of one desire.
Abishai took care of 300 men using a spear.
Note – The logical, rassional thing to do is to put down the spear and surrender. Be realistic. A spear is the wrong tool for the Job. If God wanted you to fight He would have supernaturally supplied the right tool.
What completely amaze me is the stories of the men that was not one of the three. Complete crazies! All of them utterly out of their minds.
All of them selected when death and utter loss were iminent! Because they took a stand!
School is out! What will you do?
- You will have to want to obey!
- It will cost you, everything
- Realize, You are equiped and skilled enough.
- Pray like His instruction is your main desire.
