According to Scripture, Miriam is remembered as a teacher and a leader of Israel. From these words we can KNOW that her mistakes did not DEFINE her life…they helped to mold her and strengthen her through those lessons. YHVH – Himself – does not remember Miriam as a failure. YHVH tells us in HIS own words that HE SENT Miriam as a BLESSING to Israel.
Scripture tells us the exact reasons that YHVH gives us examples or roles models in the Torah. This is the particular reason that Miriam’s life is important and relevant to all women of Yah –even today.
Miriam was a bold woman of faith by the time her life was finished on this earth. She learned how to use her gifting and her bold character with YHVH as her teacher. She ultimately was able to use those gifts and strengths to lead and to teach Israel.
Lessons for us:
1. Remember that YHVH built every woman with a certain character for HIS own purpose and HIS own pleasure. Therefore you also have gifts and anointing according to the desire of Yah and according to His PLAN
2. Every innate gift has great potential, but without lessons, practice and experience, the high potential cannot be gained or achieved. We see examples of this all around us – any talent – art, music, athletics, intellect – amounts to nothing until a teacher instructs that person how to develop discipline, sharp skills, and strength (endurance). Only then can the power be used for good or blessing or productivity.
3. Just as Miriam was placed in the center of a TEAM, so are we. Moshe and Aaron had very different work to do, but both of them were needed. Miriam was a very different- BUT EQUALLY NECESSARY – part of the TEAM. According to YHVH’s Word, Israel needed ALL THREE OF THEM. Likewise, each Woman at BGMC has a purpose under YAH. The team assembled for Miriam’s Heart is no more and no less important. WE are the woman assigned to Yah’s team for this time in history
4. Yah’s SECRET GARDEN
5. A place of extraordinary beauty could be seen..even as the garden had long been neglected and even invaded and ransacked by various wild critters and by wandering children intent on mischief. Yet, somehow, the original intent of the garden…the carefully planned and cultivated landscape still showed the magnificent and intentional beauty of the original owner…..
