1 Samuel 14:6 – Absolute Faith

1 Samuel 14:6
6 And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour, Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that the Lord will work for us: for there is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few.

-There is a level of faith available to all of us that results when we move past seeing what God does and start seeing who God is.  This is the faith of Jonathan when he made this bold declaration to take on a small army with just him and his companion.  Jonathan trusted that God is always able to deliver and so realized that it didn’t matter if he had 2 people or 200.  Having faith in who God is means expecting God to show up and work everything out instead of complaining that He didn’t show up when you wanted or that He didn’t do things your way.  This faith is always absolutely certain that God is able no matter what the circumstance may be.  If you don’t have peace in your life, it may be because you lack this kind of faith.  But you can have that faith and that peace right now just by accepting that God is God every second of every day.  He can’t be stopped by your problems, He can’t be turned away by your enemies, and He can’t fail no matter what.
