OVERCOMING THE WORLD
THE RISE AND FALL OF SAUL
1 Samuel 14:4-7
Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving , There was a lot that Jonathan needed to overcome for the Battle at Micmash Pass to succeed. First of all, the terrain was difficult. This pass was situated between two cliffs. One was named Bozez, which means shiny or slippery. The other was called Seneh, which means thorny or bramble-bush. There’s a reason why Saul had originally camped out at Micmash, and why the Philistines were camped out there now. It was a great place for a camp! It was hard to attack and easy to defend. But none of this deters Jonathan. He tells his armor-bearer: “Come, let’s go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised fellows. Perhaps the LORD will act in our behalf. Nothing can hinder the LORD from saving, whether by many or by few.”
