Faces like lions...

The barbarian

From the Gadities there came over to David in the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for war, who could handle shield and spear, and whose faces were like the faces of lions and they were as swift as gazelles on the mountains...These of the sons of Gad were captains of the army, he who was least was equal to a hundred and the greatest to a thousand. -1 Chronicles 12:8-14

This is the spirit that is needed in the days ahead. A fearless faith, trained hands, swift feet, courage and maturity.

I believe these men and women are gathering and they are hungry for destiny, thirsty for the waters of life that will spill out of rock. Ready for a challenge and arising out of obscurity. They are image bearers of the Lion of Zion. The come from Ziklag, the wilderness stronghold.
