There were 603,550 males that guarded the children of Israel outside of the tabernacle. These warriors protected the Israelites’ rights to serve and worship. Proverbs 21:31 says, “The horse is prepared against the day of battle, but safety is of the Lord.”
These days are tremendous times of warfare. Ephesians 6:12 tells us, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” It is an invisible battle. Every believer must learn how to be a spiritual warrior. He must guard the outside gate of his life. Many things in the world try to take over God’s people through the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.
Paul wrote to Timothy, “This charge I commit unto thee, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare” (I Timothy 1:18).
Paul had to fight the good fight of faith. He had to protect his right to worship and serve his God. A believer cannot properly enter into the warfare unless he is a servant who knows how to worship. If he fights the spiritual battle without being a servant, he will become proud about his victories or frustrated and weary about his defeats. Today, may God teach His people what it means to worship, serve, and to fight a good warfare
