Now Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading Israel at that time. Judges 4:4
With many claiming that God and The Bible are male chauvinist, and oppressed woman, let me introduce you to the Prophetess Deborah. After the death of Joshua, the 4th Judge of Israel appointed by God was Deborah.
A God fearing woman who not only led the nation of Israel back to God but also lead them to victory in war because she had the favor of God
“Certainly I will go with you,” said Deborah. “But because of the course you are taking, the honor will not be yours, for the LORD will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman.” So Deborah went with Barak to Kedesh. Judges 4:9
Make no mistake back in history woman were not treated equally by the world. They were usually oppressed or enslaved, so Deborah knew that this would add insult to injury to Sisera’s army.
All things are possible with God, doesn’t matter your gender, race, nationality, God has a plan for your life just like Deborah
Then Deborah said to Barak, “Go! This is the day the LORD has given Sisera into your hands. Has not the LORD gone ahead of you?” So Barak went down Mount Tabor, with ten thousand men following him. Judges 4:14
God was with Deborah and the nation of Israel. God didn’t discriminate against her because she was a woman, he created her. God judges by your heart, not by your appearance
Barak pursued the chariots and army as far as Harosheth Haggoyim, and all Sisera’s troops fell by the sword; not a man was left. Judges 4:16
Israel led by Deborah defeated all of Sisera’s army. If God didn’t love and respect woman, would he make Deborah the leader of Israel? Lean not on your own understanding and trust in The Lord with all your heart in Jesus Name Amen
