Lessons from Zipporah on How to get People to Follow and Support You

Lessons from Zipporah on How to get People to Follow and Support You

One of my favourite quotes from John Maxwell is: “If you think you’re leading, but no one is following, then you are only taking a long walk”

Because, the truth is, as much as you may have a mission and vision that you feel called to establish- you can’t do it by yourself, sis!

In fact, to quote from a devotional that I once wrote on Euodia and Syntyche and make this more clear:

A God-given vision will always require the assembling of a team, as teamwork makes the dream work more effectively and efficiently than doing things alone. However they also teach us that teamwork only makes the dream work if they remain like-minded, just as Paul implored [Euodia and Syntyche] to be [in Philippians 4:2-3] . Without “complete sympathy with the object of the alliance” (in the words of Andrew Carnegie) the vision will fall apart and never come to pass.

But how can you get people to willingly follow and support your cause like that?

Well, there are 5 main steps which we see really clearly outlined in the events of Zipporah’s life (particularly as Moses’ wife)- as detailed in the video below.

Lessons from Asenath on how to stop playing small

Lessons from Asenath on how to stop playing small

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 Matthew 13:33 about How to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness

Lessons from Matthew 13:33 about How to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness

So last week, we talked about how to build a relationship with God as a continuation of the lessons that we learned from Noah's female relatives (the week before that) regarding why relationships are so important.

Today we're going to be building on all of this by discussing how to put God first by seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from The Woman with the Issue of Blood on how your test is your testimony

Lessons from The Woman with the Issue of Blood on how your test is your testimony

When I did my Stuck to Savvy challenge live a few weeks ago, I did a lot of talking about The Woman with the Issue of Blood because- having had a gynecological issue that caused her to bleed for 12 years before Jesus healed her- she is a prime example of somebody who was "stuck". 

On continuing to reflect upon her story, though, I realised that the events of her life don't just demonstrate what is means to be stuck and then set free- she also demonstrates that our adversities are actually here to serve us. In fact, our test is our testimony is 3 main ways- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

This week (October 3rd to be exact) was my birthday and- it wasn't just any birthday- it was my 30th! Also, although I didn't actually make it public until late November, this month will mark a year since I started this blog with a view to:

  • Raise the profile of the contributions of the women of the Bible and how the lessons contained in these can be practically applied in our modern spiritual walks
  • Empower Christian women to fully embrace their unique identities and purpose in Christ, free of the stereotypes and traditions that can "so easily best" us

To celebrate, I am going to share my top 30 women of the Bible along with what they taught me either about Christian womanhood/femininity or life in general. So, in alphabetical order, here goes!
