Be Strong, Be Brave

The Ammonites came out and drew up in battle formation at the entrance of their city gate, while the Arameans of Zobah and Rehob and the men of Tob and Maakah were by themselves in the open country. When the Ammonites realized that the Arameans were fleeing, they fled before Abishai and went inside the city. 2 Samuel 10:8-14

This must be one of the poorest battle strategies ever. The Ammonites upset a stronger enemy, obviously not thinking about the repercussions of their action. You chose your actions not the consequences. Once it was obvious that war was inevitable, they went to hire mercenaries. Nobody will fight your battle for you like you.

Finally in the battle plan, they put their hired hands in the field while they set up next to their city gate, talk about playing it safe. An African philosophy says; the main stakeholder should bear the lion share of the burden. You cannot delegate your responsibility, this often leads to failure. The default setting when the battle is hot is retreat, sometimes this is a wise thing to do, however no army with an easy chance of flight ever wins glory.

Take counsel, get help when you need one, you do need to burn some bridges to be able to push to the limit. Don’t give the driver’s seat of your life to another. Take responsibility; be in charge.

Be strong, and let us be brave... may the LORD do what is good in his sight in Jesus’ name

We can find the thinking about the repercussions of their action and mercenaries obviously for responsibility failure. The setting thoughts and making the perfect cannot delegate your responsibility ever wins glory.
