Dear Zipporah

Dear Zipporah
“Your audacity save the leader”
[[Based on True Story: Exodus 4:18-31]]

Dear Zipporah,

I said to myself, “should I write her a letter? What would I speak to her about?” I decided not to write you your letter but then I went back to read your story and I saw it. There it was in black ink on white paper, the reason for me to send you your letter, “the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him. But Zipporah took … so the Lord let him alone.” Whoever said women were to be homemakers and housewives clearly never read your story. Your acuity saved Moses. You had a sharpness and keenness of hearing, vision and action. You were one brave woman, to come against God. Your bravery is short-lived because of the fame that rose around your husband. But we fail to see hadn’t it been for your bravery Moses wouldn’t be alive to even be a leader. Would Moses have been alive to execute his mission had it not been for your audacity?

 Modern day Zipporah, I’m not sure your husband fits in the exact shoes of ancient Moses. I don’t know if God want to kill your husband per se. But whatever God was going to allow to happen to him whether it be to lose an eye, lose his job, lose his mind, lose himself, you go and intercede for him. Behind every great man there is a strong praying and discerning woman. Behind every Moses there is a Zipporah. What has God called your Moses to do? Find out what it is and pray for him. From time to time, wives are the reservoir through which the husband brings out his purpose. Continue to be brave. Continue to pray. 

Strongly together & Inspired by,
