... a weekly letter of encouragement.
May 10, 1993
THE MARINES ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN - AND SO IS GOD:
"...I searched for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one." (Ezekiel 22:30)
Imagine: Almighty God unable to find one man to "stand in the gap."
Good men have always been in short supply: "Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but who can find a trustworthy man? (Proverbs 22:6)
However, scattered through history A FEW GOOD MEN have emerged to make the difference for God:
King David for example, attracted A FEW GOOD MEN that grew into an armed force for God in rebuilding the Nation Israel: "For day by day men came to David to help him, until there was a great army like the army of God." These GOOD MEN were:
PREPARED - "Equipped for war."
COURAGEOUS - "Mighty men of valor."
WISE - "Men who understood the times, with
knowledge of what Israel should do."
SINGLE-MINDED - "An undivided heart."
DIVERSIFIED - "With all kinds of weapons of war for the battle."
WARRIORS - "A heart for the battle." (I Chron.12:23-38)
GOD IS STILL LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN to "stand in the gap".
ARE YOU CHOOSING TO BE ONE OF THEM?
Have a great week!
