Hands and feet

1 Samuel 14:13”Then Jonathan climbed up on his hands and feet, with his armor bearer behind him..”

Stay with me as I expound this scripture and then explain the practical applications for each one of us.  Jonathan was the son of king Saul and a close buddy of David, unlike his father this man was a good, God-fearing man and very courageous too, not a coward like his father Saul.  Now look, the situation was pretty bad as they were ringed and fenced by the enemies on all sides; however, Jonathan boldly decided to do something and attack the enemy camp, nothing to cover him and none except his servant to follow him, Jonathan decided to climb the rock with his hands and feet and his armor bearer followed him.  The fire on the person next to you would catch you too, so be careful who you move with!  We need more of such courageous Jonathans’ who would arise during such dangerous situation with wisdom and guts!  

No fun in running away when the enemy approaches you, have the guts to counter attack him even if you have to crawl to do it, anybody listening to me?  Everybody wants to do things from the comfort zone, but war zone is different sweetheart, you have to be ready to smudge your makeup a bit and dirty your hands if you want victory.  After preaching in the all-night prayer for nearly 4/5 hours, as a family we returned home early morning and found that since there was no current our water tank was empty hence no water.  Well, we hit the pillows since we were just bushed-out, after a couple of hours, when my hands suddenly fell down from my cot I could feel water, due to exhaustion we had forgotten to close the bathroom tap.  The power had come and caused the mess!  The speakers, electronic gadgets were all over the floor and water was entering into other rooms as well….I was on the floor, crawling on my hands and feet trying to clear up…So, being a preacher doesn’t exempt you from such crazy things, we had to do it.

Before attacking the enemy Jonathan said, “Come up after me, for the LORD has given them into the hands of Israel." Glory to Jesus! That has to be our faith statement too! God is with us!  What I want to emphasize through this message is that, ‘do not be intimidated by the enemy and the noise that he makes, be ready to overcome the problems by doing whatever it takes…..even if you have to go down on your hands and feet.  Did you get that? Remember the woman who crawled on the floor to touch the garments of Jesus to get healed ….Jesus did see her faith and healed her instantly.  God bless you!
