Deborah, in the Old Testament, was known for her wisdom and courage. Many Israelites sought her ruling on matters.
She was respected and valued as a Judge.
She was a prophet, able to hear God’s voice.
She was a warrior. Barak would only go to battle if she came.
What is my takeaway?
First, be obedient to God’s Word. Calling out sin is not hate. It is telling the truth. Know God’s word and be ready to answer. Deborah was prepared.
Second, stand firm in your convictions even when you don’t have all the answers. My part is to speak the truth; the Holy Spirit draws the person to Jesus. People sought her ruling and knew her to be wise and fair.
Third, be courageous and don’t waiver in your faith. Today more than ever, we need to stand in our faith and take back our country.
Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
