Exodus 6:23 reveals that Moses’ sister-in-law’s name was Elisheba (or Elisheva) which translates as "God is my oath". As women of purpose, this is important to know for 2 main reasons- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Last week, lovely, we talked about what the Israelite women in Exodus 3:22 had to teach us about claiming our dreams and how to do it.
Well, another powerful lesson that they teach us is why the old cliche “your network is your net worth” is actually true- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Raise your hand if:
You know you're significant and that, like Esther, God made you "for such a time as this"?
God has already confirmed this to you by showing you what that significant thing about you is (your purpose)?
Your purpose involves turning the gifts, talents and passions that He gave you into profits by using them to serve others (business)?
BUT you’re also not sure how to make this manifest…
Well, the Israelite women in Exodus 3 give us 3 simple steps that will help you do exactly that- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
So if you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, lovely, you would have seen that I was named 1 of 101 Women of Influence! Receiving this honour also got me thinking about what it means to be a woman of influence from a Biblical perspective, especially because:
God promotes us so that we can ultimately promote Him
Every God-sized vision is going to require a team (so you will need to know how to go about being influential so that others will help make your vision a reality)
When I started to think about the how or the blueprint to becoming a woman of influence, I found myself back in Exodus 2 because Miriam and Pharaoh’s Daughter displayed the very definition of “influence”- which is:
“The action or process of producing effects on the actions, behaviour, opinions etc of another or others”
I shared all of this and more via the (live) video below.
So last week, lovely, we explored Jochebed (Moses’ mother) and what she had to teach us about how to faith it til you make it.
In this post, we’ll be diving deeper into her story so that we can uncover what the events of her life show us about:
Why it’s important to protect your dreams (especially in the early stages of when God has revealed them to you)
The 3-step process to protecting them so that they can become manifest, allowing you to speak up, step out and shine as the woman of God that He ordained you to be.
I shared all of this and more on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
There are 5 ladies of great significance in Moses’ early life, as detailed in Exodus 1 and 2:
Jochebed (his biological mother)
Shiphrah (his midwife)
Puah (also his midwife)
Miriam (his sister)
Pharaoh’s daughter (his adopted mother)
What struck me most about them is how they buck the traditional stereotype that women can’t get along! I mean, sis, they literally all came together in order to preserve their joint vision- protecting Moses and keeping him alive- despite the fact that the Pharaoh reigning at the time had commanded that all Hebrew boys be killed at birth!
Not only that, they did it successfully!
So clearly these 5 bad-ass women have a lot to teach us about the power of collaboration in bringing our God-given visions to life and how to do it- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
So for the last 2 weeks, lovely, we’ve been doing a lot of talking about Asenath and what she gave birth to- particularly with regards to the significance of her first son’s name (Manasseh).
Today, we’ll be moving right along to decoding the significance of her second son’s name (Ephraim) and what she has to teach us about being productive- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
So we’ve been doing a lot of talking about Rachel and Leah in the last few weeks, haven’t we lovely? With a particular emphasis on what they teach us about how our pasts can negatively influence us with goal setting. For example, setting goals with the wrong intentions/why or making “God’s word of no effect” by holding on to “tradition”.
The past can also keep us in bondage if we refuse to forgive ourselves for past mistakes, failures or lifestyle choices so that we can become the women of God that He ordained us to be. But never fear, lovely! Asenath (Rachel’s daughter-in-law) has much to teach us about the 4 step process of forgiving ourselves and moving forward so that we can avoid all that jazz (and much more!)- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
