Who’s in Charge?

Imagine that a leader told you to gather an army for a battle. Facing 900 chariots as Barak did would be equivalent to your soldiers today facing 900 armored tanks (Judg 4:3). How enthusiastic would you be to go on foot with a rifle to face an armored tank? What are the odds that you would overcome the tank?

When Deborah told Barak that God wanted him to fight the Canaanites, why do you think Barak said he would go only if Deborah went with him (Judg 4:6-10)? Consider the following.

As Israel faced the Canaanites, who was in charge? When you face a challenge, who is in charge? Which of the following verses best answers the question for you?
