Judges 4:1-14 And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD after Ehud died...
think about it.
What trouble faces Israel in this passage? What gifts has God given to Deborah (4:4-6)? How does Deborah motivate Barak and the other men? What are you doing to motivate and encourage the leaders in your life?
Today we have a tag team of sorts, Deborah and Barak, working together to lead Israel, and the two accomplish much together. But it was Deborah that really caught my attention. There is no doubt in my mind that Deborah was in tune with the Lord. She was confident, positive and secure in her thoughts. As a result, she is bold in responding to and taking action for the Lord. Quite an example.
So how can we be more like Deborah today? What might serving the Lord with confidence look like for you? Tami W.
