Becoming A Mighty Man

All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him (1Samuel 22:2).

Have you ever felt like you could accomplish a whole lot more if you had more talented people around you? Perhaps you are in an office and think that some of your fellow workers don't quite measure up. Imagine what David must have thought in the years following his anointing by the prophet Samuel as the next king of Israel. He spent the next many years running from the sword of King Saul. Now God was beginning to bring men to support David. But what kind of men? -- the down and outs. God gave David not the elite or the sophisticated. He gave him those who were in debt and discontented with life. David turned those men into the best fighting men of their day. In fact, David never lost a battle during his entire reign as King of Israel -- Quite a feat for a bunch of no-name, low- lifes! Some of those men became known as an elite group known as David's Mighty Men. These were the elite of the elite -- the Navy Seals -- the Few Good Men --the Green Berets. Whatever you call them, they were exceptional warriors.

Jesus took a few men who weren't exactly the cream of the crop either. He built His life into these men, which resulted in twelve men who turned the world upside down. Are you one of God's mighty men or women? Are you investing your life to build other mighty men or women? David and Jesus set the example of what can be done when we invest in others. God does extraordinary things through men who have an extraordinary God. Ask God to use your life to be a mighty man or woman for a cause greater than yourself. He delights in such prayers.
