1 Samuel 14:6-7 “Jonathan said to his young armor bearer, ‘Come let’s go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised fellows.  Perhaps the Lord will act in our behalf.  Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.'”

The Scene: A shield – a symbol representing God’s protection for us.

Like Jonathan’s armor-bearer the Holy Spirit is with us. He carries us and helps us put on His protective armor. He goes before us as our armor-bearer. The Holy Spirit said, “I am with you, heart and soul.”

Our job is to be obedient to God’s call, putting on the whole armor of God as an act of faith.  (See Ephesians 6:10-11)  God goes before His children and fights our spiritual battles. We, however, are called to stand and be courageous and must be as might warriors– then we must stand and be still.

Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

God’s Word is truth. His promises are true. We need only obey. Our job is to pray and praise our Lord for the victory.
