Judges 4:15 – God is in control of all that happens in the universe…

Judges 4:15 “And the LORD routed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army before Barak by the edge of the sword.”

God reigns on His throne in heaven. He sustains the world, operating invisible to our eyes. And He moves the hearts of men to bring to pass the situations He wills on earth.

Sisera was the commander of Jabin’s army. Jabin was the king of Canaan. He oppressed the people of Israel & they cried out to the LORD for help (Judges 4:3). 

Barak was the son of Abinoam (from Kedesh-Naphtali), called by God to gather 10,000 men to fight against Sisera. 

It was the LORD’s will to give Sisera into Barak’s hands. Hence Judges 4:15 tells us that God “..routed Sisera and his all chariots and all his army before Barak by the edge of the sword.” It is clear that Barak’s victory was completely a work of God. 

Whatever your current situation, remember that there is a God reigning on the throne in heaven. He orchestrates the events in this world according to His good pleasure and will. The Israelites cried out to Him and received His help. Cry out to Him and you could received His help too. You need Him on your side for any desired victory. But you can only have access to Him through His Son Jesus Christ. Do you know Jesus? If not, you urgently need to seek Him today.
