“And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time” (Judges 4:4).Text — Judges 4:1-9
Availability is a critical condition for God to use anyone. God uses youths that make themselves available. To be able to impact the society and be an agent of change, you must make yourself available to serve. Ability to perform a task in the church, school, community, or nation is not enough, availability to implement such a task is crucial. “Don’t just be able; always make sure you are available. Be present to make a change,” said Israel Ayivor
Deborah was a woman who was available for the use of God. When there seemed to be no one to rescue the children of Israel from oppression, Deborah was available for God’s use. She was a real change agent during her time. There are some lessons youths can draw from her life. (1) She was an all-round woman (2) She was busy yet made herself available for the battle (3) She did not see her gender as a weakness (4) She did not hesitate to take up challenges (5) She stood upright while the nation did evil in the sight of God.
Make yourself available to serve
Ability without availability is useless.
