If the Lord Works for Us

Read the Bible in a year by reading First Samuel 13 and 14 today.
Israel was not having success against the Philistines, but Jonathan knew that if the Lord was working for them, success was assured. Here is what he said to the young 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 by few” (1 Samuel 14:6). Jonathan was right on, and because of it, the Lord blessed the two men with victory against overwhelming odds.
However, how do we know if the Lord will work for us? Jonathan tested it. Rather than sitting around, he got up and went forth. Is there a good work that you would like to do or that you think the church should do? Get up and do it and see what happens.
