Israel went through the cycles of renewal and obedience, falling away, captivity, and rescue. God raised up judges for them when they repented. As we study the first 4 judges after Joshua, there are lessons we can learn and take to heart in our lives today. God is able to use anyone, no matter what their station and background, to do great things for Him - He was Israel's deliverer and brought the victory. When we serve Him, He can bring about victory in our lives as well.
