Sermon notes: Why God used Shamgar the farmer?


The writer of Judges doesn’t say much about Shamgar other than he was the son of Anath that he killed 600 Philistines and like Ehud delivered Israel. In my sermon today I want to answer two questions. First, how ordinary people like Shamgar with no military training slain 600 battle hardened Philistines? Second, What can we learn from Shamgar today? Since the writer doesn’t give any details other than what is already given I am going make some assumptions on my way.
