I love basing all my articles from the word, because the Lord has been my greatest teacher. His word has been a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Are you a sister’s keeper? And have you allowed the sister’s keeper to guide you?
Titus 2:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.
Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
From the beginning of time THE LORD IS THE SISTERS’ KEEPER…I OUGHT TO BE MY SISTER’S KEEPER.
The only person who can sustain us as sisters, as ladies, as women, is the Lord. The only one who can help you overcome any temptation of being sorted by a “sponsor” because you are broke and have no job, is the Lord.
The only one who can help us wait on him, even when we feel we should catalyze every situation in our life, is by the power of the cross, the Lord.
The only one who can help us quit trying to control every situation of our lives and ultimately surrender to Him is the Lord.
The only one who can help you wait for your Boaz without trying to date every Tom, Dick and Harry, is the Lord.
The only one who can help you find your worth and completely complete you is the Lord.
He is the SISTERS’ KEEPER.
Question is, do we allow Him to be our keeper?
Look at all the women in the Bible who were under stress or carrying some heavy laden.
From Haggai, Rebekah, Elizabeth and my favorite of them all Rahab the harlot. At the end of the day, it is the Lord who kept them, who intervened on their behalf, who sorted them out, HE IS THE SISTERS KEEPER.
Rahab was a harlot in Jericho. A land where Joshua sent spies to scout the land. 3 times, the Bible calls her a Harlot, yet she made it into the genealogy of Jesus Christ by getting married to one of the spies she hid to from the king, Salmon.
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she received the spies with peace.
She did all this, believing in the power that was greater than her.
Her defiled name was sanctified and ennobled, cleansed from the venal wantonness. The Lord kept her.
The misuse from men was soon replaced by the love she got from Salmon, one of Joshua’s spies. The power of the blood of Jesus cleansed her.
Everyone in Jericho knew she was a prostitute.
Her house was placed strategically where everyone could see how many men enter her house, but, the Lord kept her and restored holiness and honor to her. The Lord is our keeper, without Him we cannot make it.
The Lord is the sisters’ keeper. Not the money, not the cars, the high end job, the cosmetics, no, IT’S JUST BY THE LORD.
No matter how far you might have strayed, you can still call on Him and HE WILL BE YOUR KEEPER! He will save you, He will cleanse you, and your name will be new.
As He works in us, we are able to dissipate the same energy, the same light to everyone around.
Our attitude towards others changes, and we become a positive influence to the rest.
As the Lord keeps us, we identify our position through Christ. We become our sister’s keeper.
That when we see each other down, we help each other up, we are not envious of each others successes, we encourage each other, not gossip each other.
We prop each other up, not knock in each other down. We admire each other not destroy ourselves with envy and being jealous.
That we are truthful to each other, not rejoicing in others misfortune or mistakes. That we can guide each other through the right way, not rejoice when one of us falls down or strays.
When the Lord is your keeper, your one sister’s testimony gives the other sister hope.
THE LORD IS THE SISTERS’ KEEPER…YOU ARE YOUR SISTER’S KEEPER.
…”And friend are friends forever, if the Lord is Lord of them!”
Dedication to all the lovely sisters in the world!
