Apply

The period of the Judges would be used to judge Israel for abandoning God but it would not destroy them.  God’s grace allows for mighty men and women to be raised up to bring them victories rather than being crushed for good.  Today, you read about Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar and Deborah.  Each of them were used in special ways during a special time.  In the same way, God can use you!

Yield

Lord, thank you for people that listen to you and do mighty things.  Help me to be one!

Revelation

The Judges each had specialties.  Deborah was a prophetess…she Knew God and His Word.  Shamgar and Ehud were men that used their hands to fight for the Lord (Serving God).  Othniel probably did similar things but the text said He was filled with God’s Spirit.  That filling is a wonderful result of Knowing God and is vital to serving Him!
