CHOICE OF GOD
In the year 2013, we are entering a period of spiritual warfare, in which each of us must wear complete armor of God and always on guard so that the devil could not find a chance to beat us. This applies to everyone, not to mention women. For women, do not underestimate yourself. God also wants to use the women to be a tool for God’s glory.
In the book of Judges, we can see how the state of Israel after Joshua died. Judges is an important book because it gives an idea of the relationship between Joshua, who led the Israelites entered Canaan, with Saul, David, and other kings of Israel. During the period of the judges, Israel step by step learn to become a nation and no longer as the twelve tribes which stand on their own. God appoints the judges are not merely dealing with legal issues, they are the spiritual leaders who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to give you a sort of charismatic leadership in times of need. Written in the books, there are twelve judges who recorded his name and they realized that they were led by the power of the divine and not merely human choice.
God used the first judge was Othniel, Ehud and Shamgar (Judges 3), and then came the first female judge in Israel, Deborah. Deborah is one of the many women who are called and used by God himself. Deborah is a married woman (Judges 4), proving that the marriage was never designed to deter women ministry.
Deborah teaches how a woman should act wisely even though he became a leader. Humbly he delegated the task, but he is also willing to take responsibility when the people they lead are not capable.
He was also a brave woman, and firm in his leadership. In his lifetime, the wife of Lapidot along with Barak led the Israelites victory over Sisera and the Canaanite and the forces across the country are inhabited by Israelis to be safe up to 40 years.
Deborah did not let his nature as a woman call blocking service, even though he lived in a time where men dominate everything.
Attitude of obedience to God will give you the path and lead you to where you should be heading. Others will respect and care for your services when they see the love and the nature of God, God’s choices and decisions emanating from yourself.
Be a woman who is full of humility and harbored no resentment or hurt, the wounds and bitterness in a person will destroy and hinder your steps in your everyday living. It is this attitude that should be owned by the Christian women.
Debora close relationship with God makes him very influential among his people.
“In this case there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, no male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28)
