“Many Moses”

Many of us either heard or know about Moses and the awesome story surrounding his life:  How God used him for a great mission, sent up against the Pharoah, King of Egypt.  His mission to seek the release of God’s people from slavery, and lead them into the Promised Land.  When summoned for this task Moses was, at first, lacking confidence.

Throughout history we’ve had many men used to lead, and displayed great leadership in many areas of struggle.  And so, I salute the sooo many Mr. Moses.  I call attention that we must also fully acknowledge the sooo many Ms. Moses, too!  O yes, the ladies, queens, empresses, princesses, etc…  History bid us no to forget the Queen Marys, Harriet Tubmans, and all such alike.  Remember Esther in the Bible? She was met with going before the King on behalf of the Jews.  Regardless of knowing she could be put to death for approaching the King without being summoned; she said, “If I perish, I perish.” Esther 4:16.  Fearless wasn’t she?

Yes, women was created to be a helper comparable to man.  But helpers can be strong, wise and in many case endure great, great hardships too.  I can go on and on so to make my point, but I think, message received! Let us “men”, and some cases “women,” not stifle or suffocate the strength and wisdom in our women.  But let us nurture and encourage them. They were not only created to be good housewives, homemakers, good cooks, and clothes and dishwashers.

And so, I want us to not forget that amongst us there are many many Ms. Moses, and we must not fall short in our duty to encourage and stir up our ladies, queens, empresses, princesses and such unto whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report.  If there is any virtue and if there is any thing praiseworthy, encourage them towards it.
