To Every Woman Who Affects the Lives of Others, Part 3

Women in different roles - the mother, the step-mother, the midwives - with their unwavering commitment and love for the lives of others shaped the destiny of an entire nation through Moses.

Jochebed raised her children to become major players in Israel’s redemption from Egypt. Miriam became a prophetess and leader of the Hebrew women. Aaron served as the first high priest of Israel and spokesman for Moses. Moses led the Israelites out of slavery as their deliverer.

The two midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, obeyed God by refusing to bow to the Pharaoh’s orders to kill innocent babies, thus saving Moses’ life. They chose to hold to the Lord’s command to respect and preserve human life. “So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11). This means that God's word is powerful and effective, achieving the purpose for which it was sent. As a result, God blessed these women with families of their own.

Also, the daughter of Pharaoh saved Moses from death in the river and defied Pharaoh by raising him as her own.

The following is a quote from the book “Battle for the Seed” by Dr. Patricia Morgan:
“The dilemma facing our young people today has become a major concern. Teen suicide is at an all-time high, drug use continues to rise, and unwanted pregnancy makes a mother’s womb one of the most dangerous places on earth. Somewhere along the way, we have lost the ability to impact purpose and value on our children. We have failed to preserve their hearts, minds, and emotions, acting as poor stewards to God’s predestined future for them.”

History repeats itself. In Exodus, Pharaoh ordered all boys under age two to be thrown in the river. In the Gospels, king Herod had all boys under age two killed. In today’s society, many are advocating for the death of our unborn babies. No matter what your role is as a woman of God, I encourage you to take advantage of the moments you have to influence others and make a positive, lasting contribution to the glory of God.
