Strategy A Bible Principle
And Samuel said, How can I go? If Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD 1 Samuel 16:2
The whole Bible is printed with strategy. You will see it in the life of Joseph trying to deliver Egypt from famine. You will see strategy in Joshua taking the city of Jericho. You will see it in Gideon trying to deliver the Israelites from the Midianites. You will see it in the life of Nehemiah in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. It was visible in Esther in the deliverance of her people from holocaust. You see it in David taking the stronghold of Zion and even when you go to the New Testament, you will find out that Jesus and Paul are outstanding strategists and that is why they were able to get great results. You must learn to live your life with the mentality of military operations.
Today, it is quite interesting that the topic strategy suddenly gained momentum and became the latest fad in town and unfortunately, many believers, who are ignorant of the word of God also followed it. What they did not realize is that every management principle finds its root in the word of God. If you are looking for a book on strategy, no other book written today, has more on strategy than the Bible. You have several courses on strategy. You have people teaching business strategy, winning strategy, etc. and believers are flocking to these courses. While I do not make light of them, I want to draw your attention to the best book on strategy in your hands the word of God. When you read the word with an open heart, the Lord will open your eyes to secrets and principles that will unlock the miracle that you need.
