Judges 4 & 5 – Deborah and Barak

Following on in the 2nd part of our look at the story of Deborah and Barak; this week we uncover more of the events that led to the victory over their enemies.  Yet while Deborah and Barak come across as the main characters, we see that this is, in fact, God’s story!  He is the one who wins the battle and defeats the enemy.  We are all a part of God’s story.  He is in control of it and is the central character, not us.  We also see that God is always working for good.  Even sin can be turned around and used in God’s purposes.  We have no license to sin, yet God even uses our sin, where we will submit to him and turn back to him recognising our need for mercy and grace again.
