The Philistines were greater in number compared to the Israelites. But Jonathan believed In God and believed that God will win the battle for them. So He went forward to the camp of the philistines with just Him and His armour bearer to fight.
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 few.
Sometimes in life we feel like we need a whole army to help us fight our battles. We feel like we are not strong enough to overcome our battles. We feel like we haven’t got the resources to accomplish task.
But Its not about how many people are with us. As long as we have faith in Jesus and call upon Him we shall be saved. As long as we speak by faith and depend on God we will make it.
One amazing thing Jonathan did is He decreed . He spoke what He believed into existence.
He spoke what He wants ,and spoke with faith that God will hand His enemies over to Him. He only went with His cupbearer to face thirty thousand chariots and six thousand horsemen.
1 samuel 14:8
Then Jonathan said, “Very well, let us cross over to these men, and we will show ourselves to them.
9 If they say thus to us ” wait until we come to you. ‘ then we will stand still in our place and not go back to them. 10 But if they say thus ” come up to us, then we will go up. For the Lord has delivered them into our hand, and this will be a sign to us.
Sometimes we believe but we are not speaking. Jonathan spoke and He moved ” For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or few”. Job 22:28
Thou shalt decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways
Your words carry power. Because we are God’s children we have been given authority in Jesu’s name. Therefore we have to believe that when we speak we are causing everything to align together for our good. As long as we speak and have faith in Jesus over our circumstances, whatever stands in the way must move out of the way.
You cant see how you going to make it through. Because everything around you shows that you cant. But speak what you want into existence. Speak until it happens. Pray until it happens. Declare until it happens.
God has plans for us of a good future.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Therefore a bleak future is not your portion. Because what your father says about you is who you are going to be. Not what that teacher said, not what that friend said, not what even your mother or father said. Its what God says and its what you decree over your life.
You may not have it altogether right now. But there is hope. You may think you don’t have what it takes physically, mentally or emotionally. But Almighty God is with you. When you focus too much on your own strength you will question. When you focus on the problem, it blurs your vision. But when you fix your eyes on Jesus you will overcome.
Lets start decreeing and declaring
