Today's reading: 1 Samuel 14:1-23

Jonathan (Saul's son) and his armor-bearer stir things up a bit as we get into 1 Samuel 14. This duo single-handedly take on and defeat a battalion of the Philistine army, which then leads to a full-blown battle that ends in victory for the Israelites. It's an unlikely scenario that, at first glance, seems a bit reckless on Jonathan's part. But Jonathan wasn't acting on his own strength. The words he speaks to his armor-bearer in verse 6 convey an unwavering, absolute belief and trust in God and His control and protection.

"Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised. It may be that the LORD will work for us, for nothing can hinder the LORD from saving by many or by few."

Would you describe yourself as having the mindset that "nothing can hinder the Lord"? How does fully believing and trusting in God impact your day-to-day decisions, the way you interact with your family, co-workers and friends, how bold you are for God? Tami

That day Jonathan and his armor-bearer had was what I'd consider a fast-paced day.

Godspeed ahead! Fast or slow, the pace God sets is the pace to go!

God give us the boldness to go when You say "Come". Let nothing hinder us when You Lord God say "Charge!"

With all that I've already seen in my life, it's clear to me that nothing can hinder God, and that informs my mindset in life.
