18 “I look for your deliverance, Lord.
19 “Gad will be attacked by a band of raiders,
but he will attack them at their heels. Genesis 49:18-19
There is quite a bit of discussion about the meaning of the prophecy to Gad.
Essentially, Jacob is calling Gad a fighter. We might even call him a scrappy fighter. In other words, he may not be the most orthodox of fighters, but he gets the job done. It may not look pretty but it will be done. In that regard, Gad’s also a doer.
The Christian world certainly needs more doers and fighters, people who don’t care about prestige or fame, money, or power. They have a job to do and nothing will stand in their way to get it done.
What does that look like in your world? I know what it looks like to me, but what does it look like from your eyes?
