Memory Verse: “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” —Proverbs 28:1, esv
Background: The story of Deborah features a valiant, wise woman who was chosen by God to serve as prophet and judge. At God’s command, Deborah commissions Barak and accompanies him to the battlefield. Deborah prophetically reveals, however, that the honor of the battle will go to a woman. The story of Deborah reveals how God uniquely equips and positions His people to participate in His kingdom work. Ultimately, the victory belongs to the Lord.
Reflection: How have you listened to the Lord this week?
