Don’t waste your overwhelming circumstances!

 

In the Old Testament males between ages of 20-60 were most valuable -fifty shekels - because they were the most fit to go to war.  God's estimation of each individual is measured by his or her ability to engage in spiritual warfare for the establishing of His kingdom  

 

Leviticus 27:3

if your valuation is of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old, then your valuation shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.”

 

Numbers 1:3

from twenty years old and above—all who are able to go to war in Israel. You and Aaron shall number them by their armies.”

 

 Of course in New Testament terms this is not limited by the same measure   Often young women are more effective warriors than others. It is the dedication to endure until victory in tribulation that counts

 

It is all about enduring the race set before us. 

 

Hebrews 12:1

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 

Be valuable to God as a warrior!
