There is a cost to living in rebellion to God and failing to acknowledge Him personally and as a nation. That cost is oppressive leadership, or living an oppressed life. This kind of oppression is not to push us away from the Lord, but to bring us back to the Lord. The very reason it comes upon a nation is because they’ve turned away from God.
Yet, there comes a time when this oppression is over. In this message, you’ll be able to gain wisdom from looking back and learning how Israel was under great oppression, as God has sold them to a ruthless cruel governmental leader for twenty years. You’ll also learn, how important it is to turn back to God, and listen for His voice, a word from the Lord, when He begins to give you wisdom in how to fight for your freedom and how important it is to hear what He says, believe Him and act on it to be free. You’ll discover how many words of freedom from the Lord sit on the shelf waiting for someone to believe the oppression is over, believe God, and fight for the freedom that God wants you to have. Learn through the life of Deborah.
