RISE UP DEBORAH!

Dear woman of God,

Are you tired of people treating you as if you’re not supposed to have a voice and an opinion? Do you feel silenced and rendered speechless at times?! Are your ideas not valued just because you’re a woman!? This one’s for you!

WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF?


Then the RIB which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman,

Genesis 2:22

The Bible says, God made woman out of a solid bone, unlike Adam who was made out of the dust of the ground! What does it imply? It doesn’t mean that woman is superior to man; but what it does imply is, what the world sees and considers to be weak (physically); God sees it differently!

When God sees a woman, HE sees valour and strength! HE sees her as the solid bone- a framework that supports, binds and lifts up the Body of Christ to stand upright!

The World sees a warrior in the strength of one’s physique; But The Lord sees a warrior in the strength of one’s Heart❤️

GOD’S COVENANT WITH YOU:


When God chose Abraham’s descendants to be HIS; was the covenant made only with Abraham?! Do you think that it was just Abraham who found favour with God !?

Then why wasn’t Ishmael being Abraham’s direct descendant, considered the promised son!?

The LORD said in Genesis 17:21:

But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom SARAH shall bear to you at this set time next year.”

So the covenant was with the son whom “Sarah” was about to bear Abraham & not with any other woman!

TAMAR – THE CHOSEN ONE:

On a similar note, have you ever wondered why only the elder sons of Judah, Er and Onan (who were husbands of Tamar) died and not his youngest son Shelah?!

Also, interestingly the genealogy of Jesus is not of the line of Shelah!

What does this mean??

As much as God chose the tribe of Judah for the Messiah to be born, HE also chose “Tamar” to be the one to carry the lineage of Jesus Christ!

And thus the list goes on with Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba and Mary (the mother of Jesus).

THE REDEMPTION PLAN:

The Redemption plan was first unveiled to the Samaritan woman by the well, when Jesus revealed Himself to be the Messiah to her; and thus, she was commissioned by God to be the first Evangelist to spread the Messianic gospel of Christ!

And to begin with; after all, it was through Mary, GOD introduced HIS Redemption plan (Jesus) into this World without the involvement of a man!

For it is said,

And I will put enmity BETWEEN YOU AND THE WOMAN, And between your seed and HER SEED; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

Genesis 3:15

Note that it’s not mentioned as “his seed”; but as, “her seed”!

You might not know who you are.. But the enemy knows who his rival is!

Also, it is evidentially recorded in the Bible that after HIS resurrection, Jesus appeared first to a woman who followed HIM! Such is the Honour and value HE bestows upon women!

RISE UP YOU WARRIOR!


Woman of God!

People might disregard you, look down on you, mock you or even question your role in the redemption plan and ministry, just because of your gender!

But trust me! It’s the voice of the enemy trying to persuade you and deceive you by sowing the seeds of doubt in your soul, for he knows his rival!

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!

RISE UP! RISE UP DEBORAH! RISE UP, YOU MIGHTY WARRIOR!! FOR YOUR KING WHO DELIGHTS IN YOU, IS ALSO..COUNTING ON YOU!!
