Scripture: 1 Samuel 18:1-4
1 Samuel 18:1-4 says, “Now when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. Saul took him that day, and would not let him go home to his father’s house anymore. Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan took off the robe that was on him and gave it to David, with his armor, even to his sword and his bow and his belt.” When Jonathan and David made a covenant, that covenant included their armor, their swords, their bows and their ability to war! Their covenant included their ability to war. According to Genesis 3, if you and I are in the Blood Covenant then God is obligated to go to war when we ask Him. What are we asking? Are we asking God to bless the enemy or are we asking God to put the enemy under our feet? His revealed will proclaimed by His own Word in the New Testament seven times, is that God is going to make our enemy our footstool. But if we are asking Him to bless the enemy instead of making him our footstool, somebody has entered the realm of the id-ee-o-tace. I pray it is not us.
