God has always been concerned about His people. He made covenants with His leaders, and He expected the people to obey them. When God�s people disobey, there are always consequences. He is the same today. God demands and expects us to love Him enough to obey Him. The hymnist John H. Sammis penned the words that tell us to �trust and obey for there is no other way, to be happy with Jesus, but to trust and obey�.

The book of Judges reveals an enduring divine principle: when God uses a person greatly in His service, �the Spirit of the LORD (comes) upon him� (3:10; 6:34; 11:29; 14:6, 19; 15:14). At the beginning of Jesus� ministry, the Spirit descended upon Him at His baptism (Matthew 3:16; Luke 3:21-22a). Before ascending to His Father, Jesus instructed His disciples to wait for the promise of the Father.(Acts 1:4-5). Jesus let them know they would receive power when the promise, the Holy Ghost, came upon them (Acts 1:8; 4:33). If we want the power that Jesus had, we must do what Jesus did.

The book of Judges tells us about the strength as well as the weaknesses of God�s people. Yet, they were Covenant people. Under the old and the new covenant, God�s way of overthrowing the enemy and advancing His Kingdom is by the energy, strength, and power of the Holy Spirit working through yielded and obedient human vessels.
