Judges 5:19-23

19 “The kings came and fought;
Then fought the kings of Canaan
At Taanach near the waters of Megiddo;
They took no plunder in silver.
20 “The stars fought from heaven,
From their courses they fought against Sisera.
21 “The torrent of Kishon swept them away,
The ancient torrent, the torrent Kishon.
O my soul, march on with strength.
22 “Then the horses’ hoofs beat
From the dashing, the dashing of his [p]valiant steeds.
23 ‘Curse Meroz,’ said the angel of the Lord,
‘Utterly curse its inhabitants;
Because they did not come to the help of the Lord,
To the help of the Lord against the warriors.’

“The stars fought from heaven…” A poetic way of saying, God himself fought for us. Deborah and Barak knew that they would have no victory without God fighting for them.

If He didn’t want them to win, no amount of valor and multitudes of soldiers could have won the day. Likewise, no matter the odds, when they did what God asked, victory was inevitable.

In everything you do, seek Him first. Seems I’ve heard that somewhere. Oh right, it’s also in the Bible. When you put God first, really truly first, you will accomplish what you set out to do. Not because He says, okay I’ll bless whatever you want, but because you will be doing what He chose for you in the beginning.
