WOBS ~ Focus on Deborah ~ Tuesday Reflection

“Villagers in Israel would not fight; they held back until I, Deborah, arose, until I arose, a mother in Israel.”         Judges 5:7

This is how Deborah described herself in her own words from the Bible.  She was a wife, she was a judge, she was a prophetess, she was a leader in Israel, but the definition that she gave of herself was “a mother in Israel”!  wife

For the majority of my life I have defined myself by who I am to others.  I know that I have shared this before…I was first daughter to…, sister of…, granddaughter of…, wife of…, mommy/mom to…, and now Mae Mae to…, always defined by my position here on this earth through some other human being.  I am doing my best to make sure, now, I am identifying myself as, first, a daughter of God…I belong to Him!

The Israelites living in Deborah’s time had forgotten who they were and whom they belonged to, until Deborah stepped up and reminded them through her faith and trust in God.  Everyday she was a living, breathing example to them of who a faith-based woman was and how she conducted herself.  And apparently her strongest testimony came from how she mothered, not only her own children, but the others who came to her for godly wisdom.

When we are secure in who we are in Christ that is when we are at our strongest and best to help others in this world, and, after all, that is why we are here…to help and point others to Him!

BE the light to others in this dark world, let the light of God’s love shine through you so that others can come to know who they are in Christ!!

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
