BIBLE IN A YEAR: Isaiah 10:20-Isaiah 13; 2 Cor. 8:16-9:1-5; Psalm 105:37-45
4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the Lord God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?
7 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand.
MFM Devotional 6 September 2022 OUTLINE
Our Fire Scripture today talks about a great woman in the Bible called Deborah. She was a mother and a deliverer. She was a wife, a prophetess and a judge in Israel, chosen by God to save His people at a very challenging time. She showed her belief in God and her strength through God as she quietly and obediently stepped into her role.
It is difficult to find another woman in the Old Testament with such dauntlessness and determination as Deborah. Her faith, energy, confidence, character, intellect and clear-sightedness marked her out as a woman who was God’s gift to the age in which she lived. She had passion for the freedom and deliverance of her people.
Deborah was not power drunk. When she devised a plan to bring about her people’s freedom and deliverance, she shared the vision with Barak, one of Israel’s military leaders. The life of Deborah should be a challenge to both men and women. It should serve as an encouragement to all women reading this devotional to stand as prayer warriors for the needs of the time we are in now and for the deliverance and protection of nations of the world.

Deborah was highly esteemed by her people. This can be seen by the fact that when she shared with Barak her plans to overcome Jabin and Sisera, Barak refused to engage in the campaign unless Deborah was ready to counsel and guide him and others. She gave the word for battle to commence and the Israelites, with God’s help, overcame the great army of Sisera (Judges 4:14-16).
