Lessons from Miriam and Pharaoh's Daughter on how to be a woman of influence

Lessons from Miriam and Pharaoh's Daughter on how to be a woman of influence

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

  • There are many scriptures that say that we, as the church, are supposed to influence the world in order to bring them to Christ (e.g. Ephesians 1:23, Matthew 13:33 and Mark 16:14-18)

  • 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.

Lessons from Rachel on how to become a leader in your field

Ever come across something in the Bible that makes you go “wait..what?!”

Well, that’s exactly how I felt when I read Genesis 29:9- which says that Rachel was a shepherdess.

If you’re up-bringing was anything like mine, then you’re used to hearing about Rachel in terms of her:

  1. Beauty

  2. Being Jacob’s (favourite) wife

  3. Being infertile before giving birth to Joseph and Benjamin

But this was literally the first time that I’d seen that she also had another string to her bow! And not just any string-a leadership role! (Because the Bible uses the word “shepherd” on several occasions to mean “leader,” as in Ezekiel 34, Jeremiah 21 and John 10). As such, Rachel has much to teach us about leadership and how to do it God’s way.

I elaborated on this and more on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from Sarah on how to become the woman God wants me to be

Lessons from Sarah on how to become the woman God wants me to be

So, I grew up in the 90’s…

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was just “The Rock”…. and still a wrestler

When “the running man” was an entirely different dance to what it is now

When Nickelodeon was at it’s absolute peak

And during the golden age of hip-hop and R ‘n’ B-

With male groups like Dru Hill, Jodeci and Jagged Edge, and female groups like En Vogue, TLC and Brownstone…

Before, I continue, I know what you’re thinking.

“Nina, what are you even talking about?”

“Why all the 90’s nostalgia, how will this help me become the woman God wants me to be and who the heck are Brownstone?!”

Well, they’re the singers of the classic song “If you love me

Which is essentially about a woman telling a would-be lover that the journey to becoming the person that you say you want to be starts with:

  • A decision

  • Making sure that your words and your actions are congruent

  • Taking the steps necessary to be that person today

We see this confirmed through the events of Sarah’s life as well

via Genesis 17 and 18, all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from Sarah on how God reveals Himself to us

Lessons from Sarah on how God reveals Himself to us

Within Christian circles, we hear a lot about “letting God lead us,” “waiting for His direction” and “being led by the Holy Spirit” but, in the words of Brother Kanye-

“How, Sway?”

If you, like Kanye West, have ever wondered the same thing- as in:

  • How does God reveal Himself to us?

  • What should I be looking out for?

our girl (and spiritual mother), Sarah, has us covered once again- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
