#WomenOfTheScriptures💎

💕I pray you all had a beautiful Shabbat!! We left off yesterday to find Miriam was pretty much feeling some kind of way. One would think it was about the wife he chose, which is his choice ANYWAY... but we then saw Miriam’s attempt to put Moses in his place, the true issue surfaced! We read that in Num 12:2, when she questioned WHO put Moses in charge??

Now, we know this is something that plagues Israelites, they .. 👉🏾we are some complaining people! (Numbers 14:2).. But the truth was Miriam was feeling left out of the plan, little did she know she was apart of the plan.. the truth is we all have different roles, and the struggle comes with mastering yours. Now Miriam’s question, angered The Most High. HE chose Moses because that’s what HE wanted to do! As usual that complaining spirit overtakes us, and this time it causes Miriam to feel the wrath of The Most High... she was stricken with leprosy. Her brother Aaron quickly repented to Moses after he realized the grave error... yet why didn’t Miriam drop to her knees as well? I can tell you why: Stubbornness. Listen, go read Numbers 12:2-15 and see what happens when you question HIM! I will wait for you here..



Ok, so now you see what I mean!! 👏🏾We need to pause when we start doinf that because Angering The Most High is not what ya wanna do... so think of that next time you want to complain or question HIM or HIS moves! Remember, you agreed to let HIS will be done (Matthew 6:10)!! ok ok I got off track semi!! But short version.. The Most High causes Miriam become leprous, white as snow.. Stillllll... Miriam was not repented!! How do I know because did Aaron turn white as snow? He was in with the folly with his sister as well, but remember Numbers 12:11, he cried out to Moses (the one they spoke agains)! BUT guess who runs to her aide!!! MOSES (what a righteous example of a true leader)!! Moses could have acted like most of the ”leaders” we have today and requested The Most High thrash her.. but yet...He prays to The Most High in Numbers 12:11-12... and look at what Yah says “Numbers 12:14 And the Lord said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again”... HE still showed her mercy, she was punished yet spared because her brother entreated on her behalf..(cleave to that kind of brother!!). Well Moses was heard, yup the same one she spoke against. AND get this the camp didn’t move until Miriam was brought back in...she couldn’t be amongst them because it was considered unclean to be a leper (Leviticus 13:45). Soo, after a 7 day modern day banishment aka quarantine, Miriam was healed at the request of Moses and rejoined the camp. I am sure she sat there and replayed the foolish words they had spoken against The Most High chosen servant, Moses. Which I am sure Sis learned her lesson and followed Moses as not only her head, but reapected him as the messenger of The Most High..This should also set a reminder in our hearts NOT to judge or be jealousy when The FATHER has given a specific task to someone else, I see this everyday!! Nobody knows Who HE calls, but HIM! If HE used an ass to get HIS message out there...🤷🏾‍♀️( Titus 3:1–15; James 1:26; 4:11–12; Ephesians 4:31; Philippians 4:8). Miriam an influential #womanofthescriptures had an opportunity to show the women of Israel what it meant to live in righteousness (Titus 2:3) ..as not only a servant of The Most High, but to the brother she kept safe, Moses. Sis could have shown a better example without complaining, joyous, and submissiveness. I am sure for most of her life she did that; but THEN she failed in the matter of minding her business which led to complaining.. which lead to questioning The Most High decision... See the pattern here? Seeing how all this played out... I hope each of us see the countless opportunities to show the busybodies, gossipers, and complainers around how a true chosen one acts in these matters (*scriptures below*)... While I truly understand her reasoning .. still was not her place to question Moses duties as HIS messenger. Because while she may have felt unimportant, she too played a part in HIS purpose.

🛡TakeAway-Let her failed test be not only a testimony on controlling our emotions and being the Titus 2 example for others BUT a quick reminder that NOBODY is exempt from The Most High discipline. Don’t allow Satan to use you for his own purposes when you were placed to fulfill The Most High’s purpose just as other women of the scripture did.. How to find your purpose.. let’s journey with our next woman of the scripture to see how she found hers!!

*1 Timothy 5:13-And withal they learn [to be] idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.


1 Thessalonians 4:11-And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;


2 Thessalonians 3:11-For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.


1 Peter 4:15-But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, or [as] an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.


Proverbs 20:3-[It is] an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.


P.s. As with many other Israelites, Miriam didn’t make it to see the promise land. BUT she did help to fulfill her purpose which caused others who did see it... just maybe, they learned from her error in judgement
