I Samuel 18:1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.
Do you seek to have a disciple that you can teach and train? Something will have to be done that will cause the one that you will teach to desire to allow you to teach them.
You have to earn the right to teach them. It is not just a normal and natural thing that they would allow you to disciple them. They are looking for someone that will be able to really help them.
In this Bible story Jonathan is the prince. He knows that he is the man. Who could lead him? Who can teach him? The answer is the one that brings the giant’s head in his hand when even his dad was unable to win the battle.
You can win his heart and love but you must prove your spiritual walk, power and victory before they will want to follow you. Do you have the victory in your spiritual life? Is God blessing you in a visible way?
He will be willing to acknowledge your ability and wisdom when he sees God’s hand on your life.
