Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. So, he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people. – Genesis 14:16 (NKJV)
Have you ever wondered how Abraham was able to defeat 4 kings and their raging armies with only 318 trained servants? It was only by divine tactics and God- inspired strategy. This resulted to a great victory and recovery of all the goods the army had plundered. The strategy was preparation and knowledge of his environment. Abraham had to prepare all his servants with proper training for the eventuality of war, day and night! This training eventually cumulated into a successful recovery, when the opportunity came to rescue Lot. Just imagine if Abraham was not prepared, Lot would have remained a captive.
Maybe your God-inspired strategy to that situation is preparedness that may in turn be someone’s saving grace! Maybe you just need to acquire knowledge at the current position you’ve found yourself, which will work to your advantage in the future. This season, let God inspire you, let him show you some divine tactics and give you some mind-blowing strategies. You will always achieve uncommon feats and superior victory!
Have a wonderful day.
Confession: I will prepare and increase my knowledge to harness the opportunities that God is bringing my way.
