14 1 One day Jonathan son of Saul said to his young armor-bearer, “Come, let’s go over to the Philistine outpost on the other side.” But he did not tell his father.
2 Saul was staying on the outskirts of Gibeah under a pomegranate tree in Migron. With him were about six hundred men, 3 among whom was Ahijah, who was wearing an ephod. He was a son of Ichabod’s brother Ahitub son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the Lord’s priest in Shiloh. No one was aware that Jonathan had left.
4 On each side of the pass that Jonathan intended to cross to reach the Philistine outpost was a cliff; one was called Bozez and the other Seneh. 5 One cliff stood to the north toward Mikmash, the other to the south toward Geba.
Jonathan went alone to attack the Philistines. He trusted God for the victory and wanted to act on that trust. He knew the number of Philistines was not a problem for God. Everyone else was afraid, but not Jonathan and his armor bearer. God honored the brave faith and action of these two men. They won tremendous victory. Have you felt surrounded by the enemy and the odds are against you? Are you overwhelmed? Know that God is not intimidated by the size of your problem. With God there are enough resources to win the battle. When God calls you to action, know that you can bravely commit your resources to God. Rely on him to lead you to victory.
