Word for the Week...June 25 ---July 1 / 2007

"Then Jael, Heber's wife took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand..."

This was an act of courage and decisiveness which clinched the victory for Israel. Sisera was an Influential figure (for evil) and he had to be eliminated if the road to peace was to be made clear.Christ Is our Peace...[Eph.2:14] and our 'old man' was nailed to the cross with Him...[Romans 6:6]. Therefore we enjoy Victory and Peace when we appropriate and act according to these truths. But how could a 'mere woman' do such a thing?, one may ask ! The answer is that God Is 'no respecter of persons but He chooses thse who walk in faith to accomplish His purposes, regadless of gender, status,position or rank...[1 Cor.1:27-29]. If Jael could act in faith, so can we ! We may not need to find a tent peg and a hammer ! but we can also be decisive and courageous in our stand for The Truth.!!!

May The Lord Bless you. '
