Many or Few - June 9
And Jonathon said to the young man that bear his armor,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. 1Samuel 14:6
There is a theme throughout the Bible, that God is not limited in helping his people by whatever circumstances may be occurring around them at the time. Often times in Old Testament days, Israel was small in number and there enemies, large. Then God would come thru and win a great victory. Even in the New Testament scriptures Gods people and messengers were often poor, ignorant by the worlds standards, unlearned, despised, persecuted and rejected. Yet God used them mightily to propel his church forward. We often times may feel insufficient, overwhelmed or outnumbered by what’s going on around us. But how many times when we thought there is no way for this particular need or problem to be taken care of. Then God surprises us with his great ability and just simply meets the need, changes the situation by his love, mercy, power and care for us. Many of mine and Dena’s prayers and needs have been answered miraculously by God in these peculiar times were in. And we have heard many of you saying the same things. That’s because God is not limited in helping us by the circumstances around us . So if things look favorable or not today we should have faith that my God is going to come thru for me.
