Sunday Musings - The Lord Will Go Before You

When the prophetess Deborah reminded Barak that the Lord had commanded him to deploy troops against the oppressors of Israel in Judges chapter four, Barak said to her, "If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go!"

Deborah agreed to go with him, although she pointed out that Barak would receive no glory because of his unwillingness to go along. At the appointed time, she said to Barak, "Up! For this is the day in which the Lord has delivered Sisera into your hand. Has not the Lord gone out before you?"

Just as the Lord went out before the Israelites to pave the way for victory, He will go out before us as we follow where He leads.


Will we be like Barak when the Lord calls? Insisting that the someone else go along and, therefore, opening the way for someone else to fulfill God's purpose? Or will we walk boldly into our calling knowing that the Lord has gone before us?
