Barak answered her: “If you go with me, I’ll go; but if you won’t go with me, I won’t go.”
D’vorah had already told Barak that Heaven decreed that Sisra would be defeated that day. Barak could have been the one to bring it about, but he was scared. He asked for D’vorah to go with him to help assure him as opposed to facing the army trusting and knowing that the Almighty was with him. What is D’vorah? How could she save him? There is only One who saves. It was decreed that Sisra dies that day so the Most High raised up Ya’el to see His will done. There are some things that only we can do. We must answer the call or we deprive ourselves of what our Heavenly Father knows we need.
