CELEBRATING A STRONG WOMAN
by Prophetess BN Bondera
Gen.21.14 – So Abraham got up early the next morning, prepared food for the journey, and strapped a container of water to Hagar’s shoulders. He sent her away with their son, and she walked out into the wilderness of Beersheba, wandering aimlessly.
The bible has always been clear when it came to the issues of explaining Abraham’s riches. Ishmael was his blood son. Verse 11 of this chapter even mentions that Abraham was so upset because Sarah’s attitude towards Ishamael.
But to my surprise, with how rich Abraham was, he only send away his son and her mother with nothing but a bottle water. He did not even consider securing for them a place to reside in. Abraham was rich, he could afford to prepare a better life for his son. after all he was a man of God. But he exposed them to the harshness of the wilderness, the creatures of the wilderness without any escort, without any protection.
Imagine the son of the then mulitbillionaire, wondering aimlessly in the wilderness with nothing but a bottle water to his name.
What a turmoil it was for Hagar. How would she hunt for their next meal without any weapon and without any money. From the luxurious palace lifestyle there she was stranded in the wilderness with nowhere to go and with no one to turn to .
Such are the tough and difficult situations as women we find ourselves in. Women I salute you, you are worthy to be celebrated.
Prov.31.30 – Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.
WOMEN I SALUTE YOU
2023: YEAR OF FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECIES. (2 Kings 7:16)
