The Hebrew Midwives: God Chooses what is Low and Despised

These childless women who assisted others in building up their families were themselves blessed with children. “For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly” (Psalm 138:6). And if we were to stretch our lenses even further, we would see the LORD Himself as the supreme figure in the drama. While Pharaoh scrambles about using enslavement, infanticide and the power of Egypt against the Hebrews, the LORD rescues His people through the simple obedience of two humble women—unlikely saviors! But isn't that how God works?
