BUT MIDWIVES FEARED GOD


Exodus 1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the male children alive.

One thing every man and woman needs is wisdom. Proverbs 4:7 says it is the principal thing.Wisdom is so important even the Most High needed it to create the world according to Proverbs 3:19.Wisdom brings happiness -proverbs 3:13, Wisdom gives life-Ecclesiastes 7:12, wisdom brings recognition,1 Kings 10:1-10. Wisdom is needed to build a house- Proverbs 24:3. Wisdom brings protection – Proverbs 2:12. Wisdom is an essential requirement to get to heaven – Matthew 25:1-13.

What is wisdom ? Job 28:28 defines wisdom as the fear of the Lord. An individual who fears God is considered wise. Anyone who fears God is entitled to the proceeds of wisdom as mentioned above. Why do we have to fear God? Psalm 33: 8-9 says the reason why we should fear God is because once He speaks , it is done.Another reason to fear Him according to Matthew 10:28 is because He decides who goes to heaven or hell.

God loves wise people and abhors foolish people. No wonder the bible describes atheist as fools. What are the advantages of been wise ?Psalm 33:18 says the eyes of the Lord is on those who fear Him i.e those who are wise .Psalm 34: 9 Says there is no want to those who fear Him I.e wise . The midwives chose to be wise and the bible records that He provided households for them -Exodus 1: 22.

A yardstick to measure wisdom is by the amount of fear one has for God. The good news is that He is able to make anyone wise.James 1:5 says anyone who lacks wisdom should ask God.

Action Point:Be wise .

A born again Christian. I love reading, watching my favorite team play, and meeting new people.
