There were few people left in the villages of Israel-until Deborah arose as a Mother for Israel. Judges 5:7
Webster defines mother as “a woman in authority; specifically: the superior of a religious community of women”. Well, Deborah was definitely a woman in authority. She was the only female Judge called by God. Deborah’s story is one of a woman of power. She did not ask for nor seek power. She was a woman of purpose who humbled herself before God, so that He could use her in a powerful way. We are women of purpose, and like Deborah, need to position ourselves before God so He can demonstrate His power through us.
Deborah’s challenge to us is to:
1) Be available.
2) Put all our effort into what we can do, not what we can’t do.
3) Let God be in control.
