But when the people of Israel cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the people of Israel, who saved them, Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.
Series: Overwhelming Victory
We have been studying the battles of the Old Testament and trying to understand what is it that was the key in them experiencing victory in their battles and wars, if we can imitate their principles, we can be victorious like them too.
Yesterday we were talking about time, today’s topic is quite similar since it is built over times. And thats how we make traditions, it gets developed over time. Traditions make us depend on ourselves and we think that we are our own saviour! We feel that we have the solution and answer to all life’s challenges.
In Judges 3, we read the story about Othniel. Till now God has always spoken to a tribe, country or the army that God would commission to fight the battle. But here we see God using one man! This was the first time God used this strategy.
Can you imagine God saying, I don’t need an army, i just need one man! Othniel was the first of all the Judges. When we surrender to God, there is no extent to how much he can release new beginnings into our lives.
If we need to receive these new things that God wants to release into our lives, we need to close doors and say good bye to the old things, the old circumstances and the old way of doing things, we need to get rid of the routines to make room for what God has prepared in store for us.Traditions are coming to God today and expecting him to do the same thing that he did yesterday.

Our prayer for you today is that God will release many firsts and new beginnings in your life this week.
