If you have stepped into your light and started your journey of living your purpose then my question above is very significant. This is one question most of us are not intentional in addressing. I’ll rephrase and ask “ Who walks into the frontlines of battle with you as you encounter barriers, lead your business,ministry or other endeavors of your calling?
This requires a lot of reflections and inspired actions. In the Bible, very successful Kings who conquered kingdoms had armor bearers who were a cut above everyone else . Before David was a king he was an armor bearer for King Saul. So I ask again, “ who flanks you ?”
Don’t be deceived in thinking that you can all by yourself accomplish that for which you have been called. One of the obvious responsibility of an armor bearer is to help a warrior carry their weapons into battle. You need reliable and loyal support. This is an important job that shouldn’t be given to just anybody. Can you imagine being sabotaged by your armor bearer in the battle field ?
Please don’t be sentimental in choosing your armor bearer. Prayerful ask God to help you select your armor bearer.
I don’t joke with those who go into the battle with me. This is one of the things that I am very intentional about. My identity and all that I do is deeply rooted in my christian faith. One of the first things that I do is to ensure that my armor bearers and I share the same ultimate vision so that we are most times in consonance. You have to decide what works best for you. The higher your calling the more you would need to rely on the Giver of Visions and your armor bearers.
