Topic: AN EFFECTIVE WOMAN
Text: Judges 4:4-5 KJV
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.
An effective woman is a total woman, she is a woman with a balanced life. 3 major cardinal areas of an effective woman are home building (as a family woman), career (entrepreneur), and ministry (God given purpose).
A our case study in our text above is a perfect example of an effective woman. Deborah was qualified in these 3 cardinal areas of an effective woman.
- She was a wife: Deborah was the wife of Lapidoth, meaning she was a core family woman, she was effective at her home front as a wife to her husband, as a mother to her children, as a daughter in-law, sister in-laws e.t.c This is one cardinal area of an effective woman which is important.
She was a Judge: Deborah was not just a house wife but also a career woman, she was a judge and an effective one. Many married women often have got to sacrifice their career, passion and skills for entrepreneurship because of the demand to keep up with their family life. I am not hear to condemn such decision but will like to emphasize that as a wife its important you do something no matter how small to also support the family finance and not be absolutely dependant on your husband for everything. But do not make the mistake to suffer your home because of your career or business.
She was a Prophetess: Deborah was a woman of God, she has a ministry and she was effective fulfilling her God given purpose. This is one area many women are found wanted, a lot of woman has sacrificed their ministry for their marriage, a lot of vibrant youth sisters, suddenly go into hiding or bury their ministry and spiritual gift because they became married. Beloved, your ministry is as important as your home, dare to be a Deborah, being effective in family, career and ministry.
A piece of advise to all married men, male youth and singles, strive to make your wife an effective woman in family, career and ministry. It is not wrong that she married you but it will be wrong if you bury or silent every other quality virtues in her just because she is now your wife. Encourage her to be the best.
Today’s devotional is dedicated to all married women, female youth and singles and especially Prevailing Sisters’. You are specially invited to PREVAILING SISTERS’ CONFERENCE. Come and learn from experienced women how to balance family, career and ministry as an effective woman. God bless you
