Blessings and Safety in Obedience

"1611 KJV. Exodus 1:15-20
[15]¶ And the King of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwiues, (of which the name of one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah.)
[16]And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew-women, and see them vpon the stooles, if it be a sonne, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then shee shall liue.
[17]But the midwiues feared God, and did not as the King of Egypt commanded them, but saued the men children aliue.
[18]And the King of Egypt called for the midwiues, & said vnto them, Why haue ye done this thing, and haue saued the men children aliue?
[19]And the midwiues said vnto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women: for they are liuely, and are deliuered ere the midwiues come in vnto them.
[20]Therefore God dealt well with the midwiues: and the people multiplied and waxed very mighty."

       The risk these women took in obeying God is amazing to me. I can say I have had to take some scary (for me) risks in my walk but nothing like this. I sit here faced with many decisions and must, above all else, obey God.
