Heavenly Father, daily we face fears.  Most of our fears revolve around what we don’t understand or can’t yet see.  We fear death because we don’t know what that looks like, yet we know You love us and are there and will care for us and promise us a beautiful place You are preparing for us.  We fear what is around the next corner.  We fear change.  Help us focus on You rather than fear.  When we can focus on You and the love You have for us, the thing we fear is small in comparison.  Give us release from fearing what we can’t see and a love for You that conquers all fear.

In Jesus’ name.


We see here that the new king of Egypt feared the Hebrews as they grew in number to the point he was willing to have their male babies murdered. 

What do you think he really feared? 

Have you ever feared what you don’t understand? Or maybe its change you fear?

Can you imagine fearing something or someone enough to murder babies?  Yet that is what we do daily, we just call it a medical procedure.

July 27– Exodus 1:15-22

15 Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, 16 “When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.” 17 But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. 18 So the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and let the male children live?” 19 The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” 20 So God dealt well with the midwives. And the people multiplied and grew very strong. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families. 22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”
