There is a point when a Warrior must become the Wiseman. We fight the good fight, keep the faith. We grow into the position of Authority we were designed for. Not to just keep fighting but to equip others with the skills and knowledge we learned following in the footsteps of those who came before us. Proverbs 27:17 17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend The L-rd teaches us through trials and tribulations so that we have the experience to speak with Authority to the next generation of men. He then gives them there own crucible. Psalm 66:10-12 For You have tried us, O G-d; You have refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the net; You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins. You made men ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance. This is how the L-rd forges leaders.
