Are you inspired by powerhouse women in leadership? Then you likely will find yourself agreeing with every word in this episode of Men and Women from the Bible, a love letter written to Deborah. Deborah was the original SHE-E-O, serving as the only known female leader of the Israelites. In Judges 4, we learn of her leadership as a prophetess and judge over the land.

When the time came to protect the Israelites, Deborah called on her military commander, Barak, asking him to go to war to protect the Israelites, but he responded, “I’ll only go if you come with me.” Rather than letting him back away from his calling, Deborah decided to pack her bags and go into battle with him. In essence, she responded with, “Of course I’ll go, but with an attitude like that, you ought to know that I will get the glory. God will use a woman’s hand to take care of Sisera.”

Deborah stared down danger and did not blink. Her bravery inspired her army of men to rise up to their calling.

You may have your own Sisera’s in life to go to battle against. Rather than listening to those around you who may tell you it is too dangerous to pursue your purpose, watch this video to see how Deborah’s life can serve as an inspiration to live with a fierce and fearless heart. Like Deborah, you can speak from your heart and rest in your own value and worth. God has your back.
