Leadership: Turning Outcasts Into A Mighty Army

Currently in 1 Samuel and the story of David’s flight away from Saul who was trying to kill him.

My heart bleeds for David. I’ve read this before, but now I see it in a different perspective.

I am amazed at how emotionally strong David was in the story.

During this time, he was trying to escape Saul, he left everything he had, there was nothing to eat, his king-to whom he hd been very faithful, was trying to kill him, he had to leave his best friend, position, and family behind…and yet he helped everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul…they all gathered to him seeking for help-during the time when he too, was at his lowest. He BECAME COMMANDER OVER THEM.

He turned outcasts to an army-even at his lowest point.

May God grant us the strength to lead, even at our weakest-those times when people come to us for help not knowing we also have our own battles within. May we be like David, taking command, having the right mind in the midst of an emotional chaos😃 and turning distressed people into an army for God. 💯


Also, I saw this photo from one of the FB groups I am in. I thought of sharing it here:

  1. It’s not easy to act like David but we have to wear his hat. He was bold irrespective of the situation at hand. It’s unfortunate that during this pandemic when Christians need to unite, the evil one is still causing discord among Christians. I saw an experience that left me baffled today. Anyway, persistent warriors shall see the Kingdom of heaven.

  2. My daughter and I were just talking about David last night and his heart for God. What an amazing example for all of us to follow. Thank you for sharing!
