Great Lessons from the Lesser Known, Part 3
February 6 & 7, 2016
Kurt Johnston

Powerful Proclamation #1:  "PERHAPS GOD!"

"Jonathan said to his young armor-bearer, 'Come, let's go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised men. Perhaps God will act in our behalf. Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.'" 1 Samuel 14:6 (NIV)

Powerful Proclamation #2: "I AM WITH YOU HEART AND SOUL."

"'Do all that you have in mind,' his armor-bearer said, 'Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.'" 1 Samuel 14:7 (NIV)

Which Am I? __________________________

Action Plan:  Read through 1 Samuel 14 this week and look through it in light of these two proclamations.

What Do I Do About It?

LEAN Into It, But Don't LOCK Onto It


"Jonathan said, 'Come on, then; we will cross over toward them and let them see us.  If they say to us, "Wait there until we come to you," we will stay where we are and not go up to them.  But if they say, "Come up to us," we will climb up, because that will be our sign that the LORD has given them into our hands.'" 1 Samuel 14:8-10 (NIV)

LEARN From Others

Action Plan: If you haven't joined a small group yet, take this time to prayerfully consider it. We are truly better together and a small group is a great place to Look, Listen, and Learn from others. Visit

  • Ruth and Naomi (Ruth 1)
  • Jonathan and David (1 Samuel 20)
  • Mordecai and Esther (Esther 4)

Action Plan:  Read these three chapters this week. Choose one of them and read the entire book.
