Deborah, a judge of Israel, approached general Barak urging him to obey God and go forth into battle. Barak agreed to go, but only if Deborah went with him, which she did. Does this mean Barak was not a man of faith? No! In Hebrews, Barak is listed among the men of faith. God has compassion when we are weak, and He provides someone to walk along side us, reminding us that we are not going forth in our own strength, but in the strength of the LORD. Please open your Bible to Judges, chapter four to hear more about this from Pastor Ray Viola.
