Closer: 30 Days of Prayer and Fasting

Day Three: 1 Samuel 14:6

"And Jonathan said to his young armor-bearer, Come, and let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For there is nothing to prevent the Lord from saving by many or by few."

While Saul, Jonathan's dad and King of Israel, sat under a pomegranate tree with 600 men; Jonathan and his armor bearer defeated the Philistines. One of the most courageous acts in all of the Bible! There are three lessons that we learn from this story.

1) Jonathan took action (without knowing his fate)
2) Jonathan had great faith
3) God rewarded Jonathan’s faith

Many times we want God to move and then we’ll take action, but God wants us to move and then He’ll take action. Faith is not constantly waiting on God to move. At some point, we must venture out into the unknown and the uncertain if we are going to accomplish great things for God.

It may be, what a statement Jonathan makes! Today it may be, that God will answer your prayer. It may be, that God will give you peace and see you through a difficult time. It may be, that God is waiting on you to take a step toward your destiny...

The Bible says that, "Our God is a God that owns the cattle on a thousand hills and the whole Earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof"

God has unlimited power and resources that can help you accomplish your God-sized dream. The question is, will you take a step?

Prayer Focus: God give me the courage of Jonathan. The strength to step where you've called me to step and be the person you have destined me to be.
