Discussion for 1 Samuel 14

    When it comes to God, it is not a question of strategy or tactics, victory comes any how He wants it. We also see the power of agreement working between Jonathan and his armour bearer. Jonathan took a risk which I believe was divinely inspired. Lesson: Don't share your vision with everyone and move away from negative people. Be bold and take God by His word.
  • Roberto E Fiad
    God alone is bigger than any multitude of enemies, any giant, and He can use as few as two or three to do the works of entire armies to do what He wills. I've read that nothing can thwart His hand or His will. This chapter is evidence of that truth.
