Hey BridgeKids Families!
This week we continue our study of the Judges as we work through the Old Testament. When God’s people were distressed by Canaan, they cried out for a judge and God sent them a judge named Deborah. Deborah obeyed God and instructed Barak to fight Israel’s enemy. With the help of a woman named Jael, Israel won the victory.
Open your Bibles to Judges 4-5. If you have younger kids you can use a story Bible to read it with them. Here you will read about how God used Deborah to help lead the Israelites. God does what is for His glory and our good. (Psalm 115:3; Romans 8:28) God fought for the Israelites and used Deborah, Barak, and Jael to defeat Canaan. In a similar way, God uses people and events to not only save us from our enemies, but to bring about our ultimate good: salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Help your children see that God uses people to bring about His perfect plan.
