If you missed the other parts in Tsipporah’s study, feel free to read them:
There are awesome lessons be to found in Tsipporah’s study that we can learn from. Here are some that I found:
- She showed patience and compassion by feeding Mosheh for 10 years and waiting for the right time to remind her father about him. Sometimes YAHUAH might lead us to help someone by feeding them spiritually with the bread and water of the word, this feeding might take years to get the person delivered.
- She showed her courage and was wise in her words when she reminded her father about Mosheh. She didn’t come at him in a threatening matter, telling her father off, becoming loud or boisterous. All women know that if you come at a man that wrong way, he will not hear you!
- She showed her faith in YAHUAH and we must learn to do so with our words, recalling all that YAHUAH has done for us and others.
- Her father valued her so much that he said that whoever could pull the Stick of YAHUAH out of his garden could have Tsipporah as a wife. The value that a father places on his daughter is very important. If a father values his daughter (s), she will value herself and in most cases, she will not seek value in a man who does not value her, the same as or more than her father. Furthermore her father protected her from men who were unworthy of such a righteous woman! Only the man who had a right to be Tsipporah’s man/husband could pull up the Stick of YAHUAH and Mosheh was that man/husband.
- She was swift and feared YAHUAH which is evident in her actions that rescued her husband and her son. Just as with Judith (study coming soon), I believe YAHUAH, used these women, Tsipporah and Judith, to bring deliverance in the lives of those around them. I do not believe Tsipporah did anything for her own esteem. I do not think she was trying to become great, nor take the place of her husband by circumcising Gershom. Furthermore, this circumcision is before YAHUSHA, and what the emissaries taught about keeping the law.
- Tsipporah was righteous and is called righteous, oh how we all would desire to be called righteous!!! As women who fear YAHUAH, we must learn to be virtuous, trustworthy, meek, peaceful, prudent, and righteous in all that we do!
