These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel.”-1 Chronicles 11:10
When the lord releases a prophetic word towards your future, Next to none are the times you will get to your destiny alone.
You will need destiny helpers and men whose destiny is either partially or fully connected to your destiny.
Men willing to give of themselves to see the prophecy come true.
Pray for such people before you even see them and open your eyes as you trust the lord to do the connections at the right timing.
In David’s scenario he had 3 men that stood out to the extent they could risk their lives just to see his desire met.
One day he longed to have drink of water from a well which was by the gate of Bethlehem and this men broke through the host of the philistines just to get David a drink. ( see 1 chronicles 11:17-18)
It will be to your great blessing if God can put such men into your life.
Men ready to put their lives into jeopardy just to see you are okay. (and is this not what we see In Philippians 2:3,4) “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.”
In another instance is when Jesus tells us that greater love is a friend ready to lay down his own life for a friend… John 15.13
But whenever we are blessed with such men may we not take them for granted but contain the humility that we still see in David.
“…and brought it to David: but David would not drink of it, but poured it out to the Lord, And said, May God forbid it me, that I should do this thing: shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives in jeopardy? for with the jeopardy of their lives they brought it. Therefore he would not drink it…”1Chronicles 11:18-19 ”
It is evident that David had a great and honorable relationship with his destiny helpers.
Not many would be this selfless, to either risk their lives to meet the desires of another or say No to a desire met through the risking of another’s life.
On your way to fulfill your purpose the devil will strategically put stumbling blocks that are meant to either delay you or kill your destiny.
When you are busy fighting your Saul there are other enemies you will need your close associates to battle for you.
In that line of thought, let us look at : “Jashobeam( 1 chronicles 11:11) in one time he lifted his spear and slayed 300 men, or Benaiah who the Bible tells us he did very many acts including slaying two lionlike moabites, killing a lion in a pit when it was snowing and also battled a giant Egyptian. 5cubits high(= 2.29meters/7.5 feet) who had a spear but Benaiah was able to snatch it from him and slay him with his own spear. ”
If you look at “1 chronicles 11:10- 47” there are plenty of heroic examples of the mighty men who went out of their way to help David.
The Bible from Genesis to Revelation is full of battles everyday, same case is your life from beginning to the end.
Some battles you might never see them or experience them for God’s angels battle them for you. But when you are busy walking up to your destiny you need people who can daily intercede for you to strengthen those angels, you need people who can fast with you until you see the next result on your path manifest.
You need a good relationship with your mentors and fathers to watch over you and guide you.
May we not deceive ourselves that we can slay Saul, the lion when it’s snowing, the giants and also the 300men all by ourselves.
And most importantly we need Jesus, we need a close relationship with him, a daily one. The goal being him to take over the wheel as we enjoy the back seat for he is the one who wants and is able to do everything for us. He wants us to die to self and live by the slogan to live is Christ. And he is also the same person who will bring your Jashobeam, Benaiah and your other destiny helpers/ guiders for if he doesn’t do it, it’s a sad truth to embrace, it can’t get done.
