Judges chapter 5 is a song of thanksgiving that Deborah and Barak sang to honor the Lord after their victory over Jabin and Sisera. The chapter starts out telling how the Israelites had turned from God and then turned back to Him under Deborah’s leadership. Then they retell all the major events of the victory and acknowledge God’s greatness. They praise the Lord for his care of them.
This is very important and something we often forget to do. We pray and ask God for help when we have a problem but then we forget to stop and thank Him when he answers. Deborah and Barak took the time to acknowledge God’s care and provision. We need to do the same!
