While the Israelites hid in caves quaking in fear of the Philistines (I Samuel 13:6-7), Jonathan acted with strength and faith (14:1-23). Jonathan left camp to spy on the Philistines. Jonathan believed nothing could hinder God from giving them victory over the Philistines. Jonathan stepped out to see if this would be the opportunity God would choose to give the victory. As God delivered the Philistines into the hands of Israel those who had been quaking in fear even came to join the fight. Nothing is too hard for the Lord but for our inaction and lack of faith.
