Day Seven – Don’t Quit!

Today’s Scripture:  Galatians 6:9 There is a fifth woman who is not mentioned in scripture, but she is almost an embodiment of Shiphrah, Puah, Jochebed, and Miriam. Her name is Lillian Trasher. In 1910, almost 3,500 years after the story of baby Moses, God called 23-year-old Lillian Trasher to break off her engagement ten days before the wedding and become[…]

Day Six – Stay Alert!

Today’s Scripture: Exodus 2:4-10, 1 Thessalonians 5:6 Miriam was the older sister of Moses. Scripture isn’t clear whether Jochebed, their mother, instructed Miriam to stand watch over Moses, or if Miriam acted on her own. Regardless, such an action could have meant death for all of them.

Day Two – Obeying God Rather Than Man

Today’s Scripture: Exodus 1:15-21 and Acts 5:28-41 What a deplorable act Pharaoh commanded Shiphrah and Puah to commit—partial-birth abortion! Fortunately, these midwives had a greater fear of God than they did of Pharaoh. They saved what they were told to destroy, because it was the right thing to do. Doing otherwise would have compromised their convictions. How do we know[…]

Day One – Showing Courage

Today’s Reading: Genesis 46:1-27 Someone said, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” It’s not easy to stand up for what is right, especially when challenged about convictions. In the end, our devotion to God should outweigh our desire to please man. This week’s quest centers around five women who didn’t back down in the face[…]
