Reading along with us in Exodus? Here’s today’s reading:

Exodus 2 (ESV)

Now a man from the house of Levi went and took as his wife a Levite woman. 2 The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months. 3 When she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket made of bulrushes and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. She put the child in it and placed it among the reeds by the river bank. 4 And his sister stood at a distance to know what would be done to him. 5 Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her young women walked beside the river. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her servant woman, and she took it. 6 When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby was crying. She took pity on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.” 7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and call you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?”… Continue Reading

  1. We see in Exodus 2 that God is with us, even in our trials, preparing us for what He has called us to. God knew what He was preparing Moses for, and since God’s will cannot be thwarted by man, of course Moses would be protected and cared for despite Pharoah’s order to kill all Hebrew male children.

    What are the chances that Pharoah’s daughter would be the one to spot the baby drifting by? What are the chances that she would have compassion on this Hebrew baby and raise him as her own? What are the chances that Moses’ mother would be able to care for and nurse her son…and be PAID for it? What are the chances that Moses, a homeless adult on the run, would sit down by this particular well, and have the opportunity to do good to the daughters of a priest, so he would be taken in by that man?

    One incredible “coincidence” after another. Too many to count when we have spiritual sight.

    The last few verses of Exodus 2 have Israel crying out to God for deliverance from their oppressors in Egypt:

    “God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.” (Exodus 2:25)

    God hears the prayers of those He loves. Moses had a purpose destined for him by God; we know that now, looking back. Remember: no matter what the fiery trial, or how long it lasts, God’s purposes for you will come to pass. Remember: when it seems He is not listening or moving, when He is not answering your prayers the way you want them answered, He has not taken His eye off the ball. He knows what He is doing, and He knows when it will come to pass.

    If you are His in Christ, He loves you. You can be certain of this promise:

    “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

    Heavenly Father, remind me of these things whenever I begin to doubt that you will answer my prayers the way I want them answered. Your purpose for me will stand. All I need do is wait and trust in You. Amen.
