The Lord Saved Israel

1 Samuel 14:1-23  (ID: 3379)

With God’s help, we can scale a wall! Such faith empowered Jonathan, accompanied only by his armor-bearer, to face the Philistines. His confidence lay not in his own strength and talent but in the Lord’s ability to save—and the Lord did not disappoint. God is not a bystander, teaches Alistair Begg; He continues to intervene and overrule amid the world’s panic. In Jonathan, we see a hint of Jesus, the great King, only Savior, and our one true hope.

1One day Jonathan the son of Saul said to the young man who carried his armor, “Come, let us go over to the Philistine garrison on the other side.” But he did not tell his father.
