’13 RBY [READ the BIBLE in a YEAR] Day #14 Scripture: 1 Sam 14 / 1 Chr 4/ Mark 12
1 Samuel 14 3c-10 [NLT] No one realized that Jonathan had left the Israelite camp. 4 To reach the Philistine outpost, Jonathan had to go down between two rocky cliffs that were called Bozez and Seneh. 5 The cliff on the north was in front of Micmash, and the one on the south was in front of Geba. 6 “Let’s go across to the outpost of those pagans,” Jonathan said to his armor bearer. “Perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether he has many warriors or only a few!” 7 “Do what you think is best,” the armor bearer replied. “I’m with you completely, whatever you decide.” 8 “All right then,” Jonathan told him. “We will cross over and let them see us. 9 If they say to us, ‘Stay where you are or we’ll kill you,’ then we will stop and not go up to them. 10 But if they say, ‘Come on up and fight,’ then we will go up. That will be the Lord’s sign that he will help us defeat them.”
v. 3 What is God asking me to do that other people don’t need to know I’m about to do? v. 4,5 What cliff is God asking me to climb? What obstacle is there in front of me keeping me from experiencing God’s glory, God’s provision, God’s hand. v. 6 Do I have a faith that can say; “Perhaps the Lord will help us, FOR NOTHING CAN HINDER THE LORD?
v. 7 Has God placed someone in my life that would follow my faith?
v. 8 How ready am I to commit to the challenges God has placed in front of me?
v. 9 Am I trusting God for discernment?
v. 10 Can I hear the challenge?
