Judges: A Drifting People, A Delivering God (part four)
Israel found herself against overwhelming odds when she faced the army of King Jabin of Canaan in the Jezreel Valley. At the Lord's permission, King Jabin had subdued Israel in the Promised Land for twenty years. His army's strength rested in their technology. They boasted nine hundred iron chariots, representing cutting-edge military technology. They were fast, durable, and heavy. Against such great odds God was pleased to deliver the Israelites when they called out to Him. Our God sometimes allows us to paint ourselves into a corner so that He can come to our rescue. And the odds are ever in His favor.
