Scripture Reading

Judges 7

Lesson 5: The Battle Is the Lord’s

Gideon and his three hundred men had the all-powerful God on their side, but they still had to fight the enemy. Like them, we must trust in our Heavenly Father for victory over the enemies that try to make us ineffective Christians, and we must fight the good fight of faith. Discouragement, temptation, doubt, and fear are all enemies that we can fight and subdue if we believe God is all-powerful and on our side. [1]

Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:

  • Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.

  • The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
