Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Numbered By God"
Text: Num. 1:2-3
"Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male individually, from twenty years old and above—all who are able to go to war in Israel. You and Aaron shall number them by their armies."
Any successful military leader Numbers their troops for the purposes of knowing them, training them, and organizing them for effective combat.
Our Commander Almighty God already knows us, He Numbers us for us to Know Him, be Trained by Him, and to engage our enemy in effective spiritual combat.
Israel was Numbered by God for War. They needed to be prepared for the war ahead of them in Canaan with the Canaanite nations. The wilderness is the theater of preparation. Their chronic disobedience made an 11 day journey into a 40 year agony, and most of them died still in training because of their stubborn disobedience.
As Warriors we are numbered by our Commander and King; even our hairs are numbered - He Knows us completely, and has written our name in His Book of Life! We are Knowing Him through His Training in Faith, Trust, and Obedience. He is Training us individually, and collectively, to engage our spiritual enemies of unrighteousness every day. He has equipped us (Eph. 6:10-18) with His Presence, His Word, and His Power. We deploy His Word and His Power with Faith, Trust, and Obedience, against our enemy and Grow more into His image with every victory (2Corin.3:18).
Listen up Warrior! You are Numbered By God for War and for Victory! Ooooh Rah!
"Now Thanks be unto God Who Causes Us Always To Triumph in Christ; and through us manifests the fragrance of His Knowledge in every place," (2Corin. 2:14).
Warrior at your side,
