Judges 4 : 1-10
4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.

5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.

In our generation today, the role of women in the home cannot be overemphasized, their responsibilities ranges from cooking, home management, supporting their husbands in whatsoever way they can. A lot of women have forfeited their heavenly responsibility, their God given ministries, and their purpose for a lot of responsibility in the home. Of course the home comes first but it doesn’t give an open door for a lackadaisical attitude to the work of God. You will bear me witness that most married women today were once singles who were very zealous for God, some were in the choir, the ushering group and we’re powerful instruments in the hand of God, but as soon as marriage came knocking everything went into a thin air. Prayerlessness and laziness to the work of God became order of the day.
I was in a church service on Sunday when our pastor referred us to the particular scripture above and while I was reading through, I discovered that Deborah was a great instrument, a prophetess used mightily by God to deliver his people. And in verse 4 particularly it stated

4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.

And I was like “woo” she was someone’s wife? Yes of course…..
I will like to bring to your notice that when you die and you journey to the world of eternity, your husband will not speak for you, your children will answer for themselves, your cooking and home keeping skills will be nowhere to be found.
Dear sister, please remember how you started with God, remember God has a reason for creating you, don’t let anything take away the ministry God has placed in your hands, also know that souls are tied to you, there are people that won’t get saved unless you preach to them.

God is still searching for Esthers and Deborahs in this generation, worthy vessels to use as mighty instruments. Where are your God given gifts and talents? Deborah must have been a good wife too because we didn’t read where her husband complained of her devotion to God’s work. Balance your work with God’s work, carry out the task that have been placed in your hands, you have a destiny, there are things and treasures to be achieved and never forget that Deborah the prophetess was somebody’s wife.
