Thoughts on Judges 4-5

We’re reading through Judges at Oak Tree Church, and I’m posting some observations from my daily readings here within a day or two after the reading. I’d love for you to join in the discussion.

Thoughts on Judges 4-5

I’m doing both chapters together for a couple of reasons: 1) they make up one pretty short story and 2) I have only one note between the two chapters.

The LORD routed Sisera, all his chariotry, and all his army with the edge of the sword. Sisera jumped out of his chariot and ran away on foot. Judges 4:15 NET

This is very careful to give the credit to God for the victory, even though he used people to do it. It’s easy to think that we are doing great things for God when, in reality, God is doing great things, and he happens to be using us to do them.

What did you see in these verses? What was important to you in Judges 4-5 that I did not see?
