Deborah was a judge, prophetess, and military heroine. She joined the apprehensive Barak to rally the tribes of Israel in a united attack on the Canaanites and gained a great victory for the people. Deborah was looked up to as one of the greatest leaders and judges in Israel. In Hebrews 11:32, Barak is commended for his faith because he trusted God and depended upon God’s spokesperson, Deborah. That spirit of Deborah is found in strong, confident women of God today. Women that God is using all the time to make a difference in His Kingdom. Women who I have the privilege of calling my dear friends.
