123. Josheb-Basshebeth…he raised his spear against eight hundred men (2 Samuel 23:8).
Great warriors engage the battle. They don’t shrink back from the challenge, but they step forward, even when the opposition seems overwhelming. This great warrior proved his superior ability in a contest with eight hundred men. That’s hard to fathom, but when God is on your side, numbers don’t really matter. Perhaps that’s the great lesson in this man’s strength. He, like his king, had learned to trust God in battle and not flee even when the odds were sizably against him.
