I Chronicles 12:33 Thought/Prayer: Battles: Military, Sports, or LIFE. Topics: 2 at end.
“Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.” (AKJV) (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
Big game days, such as the Super Bowl: Much hoopla, of course. And much preparation.
King Saul had banished David, and there is coming together a large army of support for making David King over all Israel, as was desired by The Lord. The men who came to David from all of the tribes are described as great warriors, great in purpose and in preparation. Preparedness is a must!
And is it not the same for sports competitions, Super Bowl or otherwise? Players have to be “experts” in one way or another, to win. The tribes of Dan and Asher had men expert in war.
In the verses prior to verse 33, men of valor are mentioned, such as the men of Simeon and Ephraim. Hopefully, many today are mighty men (or women) of valor. It takes valor – being personally brave – to carry an army, navy, or other military forces to victory. Persons of valor: Very necessary. In this scripture, they are “mighty” in valor.
Others who came to fight with David and for him, “could keep rank and ‘came with a perfect heart.’” These were the men of Zebulun. Perhaps this is the most specific, yet general, statement of all here. Specifically, they kept the rules of war, keeping rank. But, more broadly, with a heart perfectly committed. In a big ball game or match? Playing by the rules and with a committed heart: It’s want we need.
So it is in the games we play and watch today – and from antiquity. And in the game of life, as we sometimes call it, we find the same. And when we’re in the battle for LIFE, don’t these qualifications also apply? We can be expert in sharing the gospel and in listening to others’ needs, with God’s guidance. We can be personally brave, with the valor it takes to continue to stand and stand and stand for our faith and our beliefs. And by following godly guidelines in our lives, and being committed with perfect hearts (and lots of heart), we can bring to victory in choices and actions those whom we serve.
Lord, help us to be good soldiers in life, for LIFE, for you, honoring the aspects of this scripture. Then we will be worthy of the battle.
Topics: Pray for the strength and tenacity to fulfill all of the requirements for victory, whether in a military battle, sports completion – or for LIFE and saved lives, itself.
