TOPIC: BE COURAGEOUS, EVEN IN WARFARE
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 14: 1- 23
Jonathan was apparently annoyed by the humiliation his father and the army of Israel were suffering in the hands of the Philistines. Putting his trust in the Lord, he encouraged his armor-bearer to follow him fight them and he agreed.
Seeing just two people coming to fight them, the Philistines did not know that Jonathan and his armor-bearer had the God of heaven with them. Through Jonathan and his armor bearer's courage, the Philistines were defeated. They turned against each other and killed themselves.
Just as the Host of Heaven rose to help Jonathan and the Israelites, know that God is also able to raise help for you to emerge victorious.
QUESTION: Do you know that your courage and dependence on the Lord can make your enemies fight each other?
PRAYER: Father, cause confusion in the camp of the enemy so that they will fight each other; Amen.
