Num 1:42 Of the sons of Naphtali, referencing their historical lineage, by their clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, every man able to go to war:
Num 1:43 those mustered of the tribe of Naphtali were 53,400.
53,400 soldiers follower General Achira, whose name means “my brother is evil.” What an unfortunate name to have. But it is a reminder that there are times when we will have to rely on God, because our brothers and sisters will not help us. There is a time to stand together, and there is a time to stand alone.
God, give us the fellowship of others who will stand with us when we stand with you. But give us the courage to stand alone if that is your plan.
