Not a single Blacksmith

Not a blacksmith could be found in the whole land of Israel, because the Philistines had said, “Otherwise the Hebrews will make swords or spears!” So all Israel went down to the Philistines to have their plow points, mattocks, axes and sickles sharpened. 1Sam. 13:19 & 20

Here is a very interesting situation, I wonder how the made this strategic move, perhaps they priced the blacksmiths in Israel out of the market or simply made it impossible for new once to train. May be the simply imposed high levies, or restricted the flow of raw materials.

I was in charge of a big repairs and maintenance project in London a few years ago, there had been a storm all across Europe, a lot of building trades and materials were in desperate demand. Among them was timber fencing panels, an item usually picked up from the merchants now had a lead-in time running into weeks and in some cases months. There was an unconfirmed story at the time that two ships loaded with fencing panels heading for the UK got bought by a Russian oligarch. This move supposedly created or exacerbated the scarcity in the UK.

While it is the duty of governments and leadership be strategic and prevent unfair competition, it is our individual duties to consolidate our strength and enhance our positions.

Despite their predicament, God gave the victory to the Israelites.

As you step out boldly irrespective of your predicament or disadvantages, may the presence of God give you the overflow you desire in Jesus’ name.

This is only happened in the side of Israel country and related to that country. But the basic point is why it happens and why they still can't find the real point.
