The Deborah Anointing: Embracing the Call to be a Woman of Wisdom and Discernment by Michelle McClain-WaltersThe Old Testament describes Deborah as a mighty combination of judge, intercessor, prophetess, mother of Israel, and military strategist. Deborah broke outside of her culture—not out of rebellion, but in obedience to God to set her people free.
As in biblical times God is calling today’s women to a purpose greater than themselves. The Deborah Anointing shows you that although you may have been trapped in tradition and locked into captivity by cultural and gender prejudices, God desires for you to break through these barriers. Now is the time to embrace the fullness of your purpose!
Whatever your sphere of influence at work, at home, or at church—will you acc ept the challenge to be a modern-day Deborah, stand for God, and boldly lead others to Him?

Several times the king avoids ambushes and military traps set by the King of Syria. The Syrian King assumes there must be a spy for Israel in his ranks, until one of his officers explains about Elisha the prophet. Thus he used to warn him, so that he saved himself there more than once or twice. We live in a world awash with data and information, and the flood rises daily. Wisdom and insight are the most precious things in a world drowning in data. Leading well requires going beyond the observable facts in a situation. We have timeless principles of biblical wisdom.
Biblical Principles of Discernment for Developing Wise Leadership
Someone I know recently expressed an opinion that surprised and in some ways disappointed me. The experience caused me to reflect on the importance of discernment and the lack of it in our world. We know that people often do not see issues clearly and are easily misled because they do not think biblically. We are on our guard against being led astray by false teachers. But there is more to discernment than this. True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient.
