1. In Judges 6, the people of Israel become oppressed by the Midianites and they once again cry out to God. God sent word back to the people, reminding them of his faithfulness all the way back to when he delivered them from the hand of the Egyptians. Do you tend to constantly remember or constantly forget the things that God has done in the past (even the distant past)?
2. How do the things from your past encourage you in the present?
3. God also reminded the Israelites of their disobedience. Have you ever noticed a correlation between your disobedience and your inability to experience the “abundant life” in Jesus?
4. In Judges 6 (and all through the book really) Israel was regretful but not fully repentant. Are there things in your past or present that you are regretful of but not repentant in?
5. When Israel cried out to God - he preached a sermon to them about his faithfulness and their disobedience. Is there an area in your life that you are crying out for salvation and God is prompting you to listen to His previously revealed word in some way (through a book, a sermon or the bible etc.)?
6. How does the fact that God is acting in grace even before we turn back to him motivate you to repent and listen to him?
7. What troubles are you facing? Will you see them as problems that need removing or possible ways for God to change you and grow you?
One of the elements pertaining to the setting of Judges is that the people of Israel were attempting to live out their faith within an idolatrous culture.
