"Jonathan said, "My father has made trouble for the country. See how my eyes brightened when I tasted a little of this honey." 1 Samuel 14:29
At the battle, Jonathan didn't know that his dad made his soldiers fast until the battle was won, but Jonathan had a taste of honey because they won a victory and he gained great strength. Saul represents a lot of what we are not supposed to be and a lot of how we are not supposed to live. That honey brought Israel closer to winning the next battle than when they were going without food (in the middle of a battle and going without food is not wise in the first place!).
Here's my point: Praise to God now is a taste of the honey that we need to get closer to fulfilling the calling purpose , meaning and the destiny that God has for us. We have to realize that if we are going to have triumph we can not go on long without a little taste of honey! We need that honey for strength to bless this day with the triumphs that God has laid out for us! Praise God today for the small victories! Praise God today for the little victories and the little great blessings that you have and then do it again! You will be surprised what God will do when you praise Him for being who He is!
The Bible says, "Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord. (Isaiah 54, Verse 1)
(Verse 2) Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,
(Verse 3) For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
Thank God PASSIONATELY. Give him a different praise and thank Him for longer than a moment today. God has been truly good to you! Praise God! Praise Him and watch God do a miracle in your life!
