Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!


Jonathan was the eldest son of King Saul. He was supposed to be the rightful heir to the throne of Israel after the death of this father Saul. But the fact that God brought another man to ascend the throne instead of him was acceptable to him. he was a man of great courage, fidelity and unselfishness. he was a man with heroic faith. Consider his statement in 1 Samuel 14:6.

Jonathan was a faithful and loyal friend to David, friend. Loyalty is one of life`s most costly qualities found in friends. It is the most selfless part of love. To be loyal is not for yourself only but to stand by your commitment and willingness to suffer for it. Jonathan was a shining example of loyalty. Sometimes, he was faced with choosing between his father, Saul and his friend David, who was a servant to his father.

However, Jonathan allowed truth to guide him. He knew that his father sought to kill David unjustly and he stood by David and helped him to escaped from his father.
The Bible, which is the word of truth, had nothing negative to say about Jonathan. He was a perfect example of a good and godly friend.

Beloved, are you a true friend or a backbiter? Are you a jealous person or a hypocrite who would laugh before your friend but try to pull him down behind his back? Can the Bible testify about you like Jonathan are you courageous, loyal and faithful friend?

Jonathan was ready to take a second place without jealous or envy and still maintain his love and loyalty for David. No wonder when David looked back and remembered the friendship of Jonathan, he wept and made a lamentation recorded in 2 Samuel 1:26.

Beloved, are you such a friend as Jonathan? If you were in the position of Jonathan, would you have helped David to escape or would have joined forces with Saul to kill him? Think about it?



1. O Lord, raise a voice for me as you did for David, in the name of Jesus.

2. Every unfriendly friend looking for my downfall, be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.

3. Father Lord, just as you raised Jonathan to be a destiny helper for David, arise in your mercy and raise a destiny helper for me, in the name of Jesus.


4. Powers seeking my life for destruction, die in Jesus name.

5. Evil conspiracy against my moving forward, scatter, in Jesus name.

6. O Lord, baptize me with unfeigned love for my neighbor, in the name of Jesus.

7. O Lord, baptize me with the seven perfect spirit recorded in Isaiah 11:12, in the name of Jesus.
