Passage: Judges 4:6-24
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 5 secs
Don’t miss the astonishing event and its meaning in this lesson. The battle seemed hopeless to the Israelites. They were greatly outnumbered but God made a promise that He would deliver them. Hear how Deborah told Barak that God wanted him to deploy an army. See his temporary lack of faith when he asked her to come with him. Find out about a woman named Jael who lured Sisera, the fleeing commander of the enemy, into her tent and when he slept nailed a tent peg through his temple. Remember that when God makes a promise He always keeps it and we are to trust Him knowing that if God is for us, no one can win against us.
