Prince Jonathan

"Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few." - 1 Samuel 14:6

This is such an incredible verse. This explains the power and the confidence that He has in His children. God doesn't need our strength or wisdom. He just needs us to be instruments of Him. He wants to use us for His glory. The story of Prince Jonathan defeating the Philistines with just his armor bear and himself. An army of 100,000. That is ridiculous. But Jonathan has incredible trust in God. He said in verse 6, " Perhaps the Lord will act on our behalf." Wow, he was just going on a perhaps that God will save them and help them. But the thing with Jonathan, he was ready to serve God no matter the cost. He trusted God with his life. He was going through life with a mind set, i will die trying or don't try at all. Jonathan took a risk. A leap of faith. A risk means you don't know what is going to happen or how it is going to turn out but you trust God anyway. I mean when you look at it, Jonathan's risk was to defeat an army of 100,000 people. That is a pretty scary risk. But yet He had faith in God that He would fight on their behalf. That is the kind of faith that God is looking for in His children. Child-like faith that depend on their Father.
God is able to do impossible things. He doesn't need us to do miracles or amazing things. He wants to work through us, especially our weaknesses. So whatever your risk in life today is, trust God with it. He will act on your behalf if you have faith that He will. God will do amazing things through your weaknesses.( 1 Corin. 12) Just trust Him. That is my biggest thing in life right now. So this story really inspired me to trust God with the things that seem impossible right now. He is able!
