The LORD is on my side; I will not fear.What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6 NIV
In Exodus 1 we see the story of two midwives defieing the King’s order: “But the midwives feared God and did not do as the King of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live.” (Exodus 1:17)
God used two women whom we would have considered “bit players,” to help further His unalterable plan. Try as they might, no earthly edict, monarch, or efforts can hinder God from fulfilling His will. And when God wants to use someone like you to address a need or take an unpopular stance, no opposition can take you down. When you feel swallowed up and overwhelmed by the forces set against you and your family, know that a faithful, courageous minority in God’s hands can still make its voice heard in heaven and can be instruments of His will being done here on earth.
