Wake up the mighty men
David’s gathered a motley crew about him! 1 Samuel 22:2 “And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented (bitter of soul) gathered to him.So he became captain over them, and there were about four hundred men with him.”
This bunch of no-hopers became David’s mighty men, and the Lord brought about significant victories through their feats! Eleazar attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand stuck to the sword; Shammah stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines;Abishai lifted his spear against three hundred men, killed them. These men changed from defeated no-hopers into a group of the fiercest fighters ever seen. How? They aspired to be like David, who was their hero.
