Perhaps the Lord will work in our behalf (1 Samuel 14:7).
Jonathan was planning to attack the Philistines all by himself, supported only by his armour bearer. He stood at the bottom of a mountain, and the Philistines were at the top. It was a crazy strategy, but he expected that God would work on his behalf. Jonathan knew God’s promises. He knew what God had called him to do.
There has never been a great move of God in all of salvation history that was fully and properly planned in a human way. Planning is important, but it can only go so far. All the great men and women in Scripture have acted on the Divine “perhaps” – the idea that maybe, just maybe, God would move.
In our lives, when we are facing the toughest choices, and especially when we feel the still, small voice of God telling us which way we should go, we are called to act on the Divine “perhaps.” Even if it is a choice that takes you out of your comfort zone, into life-changing ground; even if it a choice that threatens your very existence as you known it, we are called to step out and act on the Divine “perhaps.”
Read Hebrews 11, the “Faith Chapter.” This is a chapter that recites the great deeds of people who felt the call of God and said, “Perhaps God will act in our behalf.” And they took the step of faith into the Divine “perhaps.”
What are the choices you are facing in your life? If you have taken hold of the promises of God, then perhaps your “perhaps” is God’s opportunity.
Good News Unlimited has taken up this challenge. We believe that we have been called by God to go into the whole world and to play our part in taking the gospel to every human being on the planet – to Spread the Word Fast. We believe that if we do what God has asked us to do, that Perhaps the Lord will work in our behalf.
