Lessons from Sarah on how God reveals Himself to us (part 2)

Lessons from Sarah on how God reveals Himself to us (part 2)

So last week, lovely, we talked about 3 of the major ways that God tends to reveal Himself to us. Today, we’re diving into part 2 of that message:-

Because- here’s the thing- God’s ability to reveal Himself to us is not just dependent on His will and desire to do so. It’s actually (pretty much) dependent on us.

Yup, let that sink in!

You see, it’s great that you now know how God reveals Himself but that’s not where your responsibility ends. You also need to know how to:

  • Show that you are ready to receive His revelation in the first place

  • Encourage God to continue to communicate with you

so that you can walk worthy of your calling as the wonderful woman of God that He ordained you to be (in accordance with Ephesians 4:1)- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from God on Femininity and Motherhood Part 2

Lessons from God on Femininity and Motherhood Part 2

Traditionally we tend to think of God as masculine, especially in His capacity as Father, however last week we looked at 3 scriptures that speak of God in feminine terms, particularly with regard to motherhood. These examples, although feminine entities, were all animal representations of God e.g. 

  • Hosea 13:18, which describes God as a mother bear 
  • Deuteronomy 32:11-12, which describes God as a mother eagle 
  • Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34, which describe God as a mother hen

If you missed it, you can view that devotional here

Today we are going to continue to explore what God has to teach us about femininity and motherhood but, this time, it will be with human examples in mind. If you prefer to listen to this devotional rather than continue to read, you can. Feel free to download and share it also. Either way, let’s begin!
