God can do great things through one person
or a group that is devoted to Him.
Read the following verses. Think
and pray about the verse that applies the most to your life.
The eyes of the Lord search back and forth across the whole earth,
looking for people whose hearts are perfect toward him, so that he
can show his great power in helping them.
1 Samuel 14:6-13
“Let’s go across to see those pagans,” Jonathan said to his armor
bearer. “ 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!” …So
they climbed up using both hands and feet, and the Philistines fell
back as Jonathan and his armor bearer killed them right and left.
The LORD said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I
will save you and give the (120,000) Midianites into your hands.”
2 Chronicles 14:9,11
Zerah marched out against (God’s people) with a vast army…Then Asa
called to the LORD his God and said, “LORD, there is no one like you
to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, O LORD our God,
for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast
army. O LORD, you are our God; do not let man prevail against you.”…
(and) The LORD struck down the Cushites.
“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the LORD
1 Samuel 17:45-47
David shouted (to Goliath), “You come to me with sword, spear, and
javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD Almighty, whom
you have defied. Today the LORD will conquer you, and I will kill
you and cut off your head….And everyone will know that the LORD does
not need weapons to rescue his people. It is his battle, not ours.
The LORD will give you to us!”
Expect great things from God.
Attempt great things for God.
