FOCUS ON SOME WOMEN IN THE BIBLE Sarah supported her husband’s dedication to YHWH their God. It was probably her desire to fulfill the promise to her husband that she gave her Hagar to at least have a child. Sarah’s laughter denoted continuing disbelief. Since Sarah has passed the age of bearing children, she laughs disbelievingly at the thought of giving birth to a son. Nothing, however, is too hard for the LORD (Genesis 18:14). Miriam led the women in praise. Moses was not proud, and he did not seek his own glory. The complaint of Miriam and Aaron were simply wrong. The best place to go when one feels hopeless and in deep anguish is before God. Abigail's quick and wise actions saved David from making a rash mistake by retaliating. The Shunammite woman's determination to speak to Elisha suggests her confidence in Elisha's willingness and ability to act. Deborah influenced the people to live for God. Her personality drew the people together and commanded the respect of even Barak, a military general. She was also a prophet whose main role was encouraging the people to obey God. Trusting Naomi's God to provide, Ruth insisted on leaving all and following her mother-in-law back to Bethlehem. In a declaration of courage and faith, Esther states "If I perish, I perish." The most important matter is to cooperate with God wherever He places a Christian. Mary’s submission is part of God’s plan to bring about our salvation. A young unmarried girl who became pregnant risked disaster. There is no end to usefulness. Anna was 84, and she gave her life to prayer, as the old can always serve in this way. Priscilla and Aquila provide a model for both marriage and ministry.
