1 Samuel 14:6

1 Samuel 14:6

Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us. For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few.”
1 Samuel 14:6

I love the faith that is always found in the life of Saul’s son, Jonathan. Here in our text, he was willing to go and fight a virtual army to protect the nation of Israel, with only his armor bearer and his faith in God to support him. God needs no help, Jonathan declares, He can save by many or few, so let’s go see what God wants to do with us.

I pray for that kind of resilient faith and hope in my own life and in yours. I know God wants to accomplish much through us but is often hindered by our lack of adventurous real faith in Him. May today you say what Jonathan did: it may be that the Lord will work in me, after all He does not need my help but is willing those available to go by faith.

Send me Lord!
