1 Samuel 11:1 “Then Nahash the Ammonite came up, and encamped against Jabeshgilead: and all the men of Jabesh said unto Nahash, Make a covenant with us, and we will serve thee.”

1 Samuel 11:2 “And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this [condition] will I make [a covenant] with you, that I may thrust out all your right eyes, and lay it [for] a reproach upon all Israel.”

…From yesterday…
Who will ever believe an untrained army will defeat the trained Ammonites hands down? History has it that some of the men that went with Saul to battle only had kitchen knives, hoes and sticks against a better armed troop, yet they won! Many times it’s not about the physical weapons; it’s about the spiritual and mental weapons!
If you don’t win within, you will never win without!
Saul came with a different mind set and helped to rally the men of Jabesh and victory was achieved. It was not just about the victory however, it was about what became of Saul afterwards. Hear this:
1 Samuel 11:12  “And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death ”
1 Samuel 11:13 “And Saul said There shall not a man be put to death this day: for to day the LORD hath wrought salvation in Israel.

1 Samuel 11:14 “Then said Samuel to the people, Come and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there.

1 Samuel 11:15  “And all the people went to Gilgal; and there they made Saul king before the LORD in Gilgal; and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before the LORD; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.”
Saul didn’t just help win the war, he was enthroned! Prior to this encounter Saul was anointed king but was not enthroned. As a matter of fact he was not reckoned with, he was despised.
To be continued…
