Dealing with Anxiety – Study 2 – Hebrew midwives


Social distancing is the new normal. Anywhere from 3 to 6 feet is now the respectful distance to stand from someone. Groups are to be held at less than 10. If you might be sick you should self-quarantine yourself. I am doing my best to comply with this new way of living.
I’m thankful for a God who doesn’t practice social distancing. A God who comes near…who is with us…who even goes so far as to seek us out. A God who promises to one day wipe away every tear from our eyes.
So as we wait for these social distancing days to be over remember that He is very near. That He loves us with an everlasting love. That in these uncertain times we can be certain of our God pulling us close. Use these days to be in His word. To be in His presence.
Monday we learned about Hagar who encountered the God who sees. Here is the second passage in this series of anxious people. Use the template below to work through the text.


Exodus 1:8-21 – There are a lot of people mentioned in this passage. I would suggest you focus on the Hebrew midwives.  Study this with someone you know over the phone or by skype. Tell me what you learn in the comments. Tell me how I can pray for you.

  1. The Hagar passage reminded me that God Sees. In all ages and in all the uproar He sees and loves each one–the Hebrew midwives and me and those I know, both near and far. He is very watchful and has a plan. This is a great comfort and encouragement to me.

    • I take great comfort in that too. Thank you for taking the time to comment. It reminds me of an old song by Stephen Curtis Chapman the chorus goes…”I know there’s a God who knows my name, and a Son who died to take the blame. I believe Jesus is coming back ’cause promises are promises and facts are facts.” Here is the link.
