Saturday 6.25.11

Everyone remembers the story of Moses but do you remember the faith of his mother.  Pharaoh had ordered every infant son of the Hebrews to be killed.  Moses’ mother knew she could not kill her baby, she valued his life and that God had a plan for Him.  She hid him for three months and then placed him in a basket in the Nile River.  Remember where Moses ended up?  Pharaoh’s daughter found him.  Moses sister was nearby to make sure her baby brother was ok.  Pharaoh’s daughter fell in love with the infant and took him as her own.  Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child’s mother.

Because Moses’ mother believed in the Lord and his plan for her son, not only was he saved.  She got to take care of him until he was old enough to go live with Pharaoh’s daughter.  He grew up knowing his heritage and God used him to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. 

God has a special plan for all of us.  This is a great example of what happens when we trust the Lord.

” The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14
