Renungan harian alkitab, 1 Samuel 14, sabtu ” victory by faith, kemenangan oleh iman”.

1 Samuel 14:12-14 (NKJV)   the men of the garrison called to Jonathan and his armorbearer, and said, “Come up to us, and we will show you something.” Jonathan said to his armorbearer, “Come up after me, for the Lord has delivered them into the hand of Israel.”

And Jonathan climbed up on his hands and knees with his armorbearer after him; and they fell before Jonathan. And as he came after him, his armorbearer killed them.

That first slaughter which Jonathan and his armorbearer made was about twenty men within about half an acre of land.

Secara jumlah tentara , hitungan matematika, bahkan secara akal sehat , pasukan Israel tidaklah mungkin melawan tentara Philistine; mereka sangat sedikit jumlahnya, tidak mempunyai pedang, dan mereka bukanlah  tentara  professional , mereka hanyalah para petani dan peternak, persenjataan sangat lemah, bahkan dari seluruh bangsa Israel hanya mempunyai 2 buah pedang!

Mengapa Jonathan bisa mengalahkan musuh di pos perbatasan? Mengapa tentara philistine gentar? 

Para pembaca terkasih, karena ” IMAN”, ketika Jonathan mempunyai iman, ia terhubung dengan realita kenyataan tentang Allah Israel yang hidup , maha kuasa , dan iman menjadikan kebenaran akan Allah menjadi kenyataan.

Tanpa iman manusia tidak berkenan kepada Allah! Dengan imam tidak ada yang mustahil bersama Tuhan.
