Shabbat Shalom sisters!
So.. Again, I hope you read the whole book of Judith there are some good nuggets..BUT for the sake of paragraph lengths lol, I am providing what some may know as "cliff notes"
OK, so we left off where Judith was preparing for her plan: She did something a lot of miss. The planning and then preparation process.. 99.98% of us head straight for the execute stage and then wonder why it failed 🤷🏾♀️.. Poor Planning = No preparation.. See, satan has that one up on yall... me too at one point, but I grew tired of going thru the same dang thing over and over again...so I began to plan and prepare EVEN before the attack..so when it came, I was already prepared..Just needed to go back to the war room and strategize a better execution depending on the situation Proverbs 16:3-Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. #SomebodyGonnaGetItOnThe2ndRead
🤦🏾♀️..sorry went off topic a bit! Lol.. but ok so she prayed. A lot of miss this step as well..Peayer should always be apart of ANY and ALL plans.. when The MOST HIGH is apart of any plan, we know it will be a success. Judith prayer was specific- she needed to save her people after discovering the plot to kill them.. The scripture describes how from chapters 1-8, Judith planned. From chapters 9-12, she prepared to execute the plan which was precise and one wrong move could mean death..Judith snuck in to Holofernes fortress by telling the soldiers she had secret info that would help Holofernes capture the Isarelites without losing a single soldier. Now, imagine seeing this beautiful Israelite woman about to help you shave off weeks of war by giving you the keys.. Little did they know she had a plan, they were just pawns in her game! Anyway she Made her way to Holofernes who was so smitten by her beauty, he knew he was about to lay with one of his enemies women..he sweet talked her and tried to seduce her in his tent.. without losing her virtue, she played the game...#HerGame
So tomorrow we will jump right into what came next.. I hope you go and read 1-12 for yourselves, there was a lot I didn't mention..as I planned to prepare you to study to show thyself approved!
2 Timothy 2:15-Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Matthew 11:28-Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Habakkuk 2:2-And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it
🙇🏾♀️That is my Prayer sisters, Judith was well versed and had a relationship with The Mody High which is why she went to HIM for help preparing her plan... Scriptures say several places: THE MOST HIGH KNOWS HIS PLANS FOR YOU..and HIS plans in victory..
🎬 Up next: ACT 4: JUDITH: DOWN WITH PPE...(Planned -Prepare- Execute) #FEARLESS
