Women of the Bible Study ~ Focus on Miriam

Let’s begin this week’s study of Miriam by reading the key scriptures in our bibles…

“Now I see that my enemies were not merely buried in the sea but in my own heart as well. Still, God has let me live, and I believe he will heal me. Though he brings grief, he will yet show compassion. One thing I know, he has hurled my pride into the sea and for that I will also sing his praises.”

The words above may be a fictitious account of Miriam’s thoughts during her seven-day banishment, but they surely have spoken to my heart…they ring with truth and give us all an example to follow.

1. We need to clearly see our own sins – Miriam realized that SHE was her own worst enemy.

2. We need to have faith in the healing of God – Miriam believed that God would heal her.

3. God is compassionate and He will show us the error of our ways.

4. We need to praise Him, at all times, in all circumstances.

“Miriam’s story offers an extraordinary example of God’s willingness to forgive those who sin. Though she had to pay the consequences for her actions—seven days of exclusion from the camp and from all those who loved her—she reentered the camp a forgiven woman. Hundreds of years later, she is remembered by the prophet Micah as a leader of Israel with Moses and Aaron (Micah 6:4).”

For I brought you up from the land of Egypt
    and redeemed you from the house of slavery,
and I sent before you Moses,
    Aaron, and Miriam.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
