The book of Exodus Ch.2

LORD God, we thank you for this day. This is the day that You have made and we shall be glad and rejoice in it. We thank you for all that You have been to us and our loved ones and right now we present this moment to You as we read You. Holy Spirit may You give us understanding, wisdom and revelation In Jesus' Name, Amen.

The end of chapter 1 in the book of Exodus ends with Pharaoh decreeing a command for all Hebrew male babies to be thrown into the river. As we saw in the previous chapter, the midwives feared God compared to Pharaoh and ensured that the Hebrew baby boys were saved at birth.

Chapter 2 starts off with the birth of a baby boy, a child who was born in the midst of Pharoah's decree. His mother noticed he was a special child so she hid him for three months and when she realized she could no longer hide him, she wrapped him up in a water proof ark and laid it by the river bank (Exodus 2:2-3).

As divinely planned by God, Pharaoh's daughter happened to be taking a bath by the river and saw this water proof ark that had a baby boy in it whom she had compassion for (Exodus 2:5-7). She named the Hebrew baby Moses, "because I drew him out of the water." (Exodus 2:10). Fortunately, Moses' older sister happened to be watching her little brother and when she saw Pharaoh's daughter pick him up from the river, she quickly asked whether Pharaoh's daughter needed a nanny to assist her with raising the baby to which she agreed (Exodus 2:8). Moses grew up as an Egyptian royal despite his Hebrew descent and as God had it, his mother was his nanny.

This text shows the magnificence of God, how He was able to orchestrate the events in a chronological sequence to ensure that the cries of His people would eventually result to their answered prayer of deliverance from their slavery and bondage in Egypt. Sometimes when we pray and don't get an immediate answer from God, the above text shows us that it does not mean that He did not hear the prayer bur rather He is working on all things for our good. Numbers 23:19 reads, "God is not a man that He should lie, Nor the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?"

Egypt's deliverer was born in the middle of a death sentence for male babies. Not only did God ensure that Pharaoh's daughter had compassion on him, his mother protected and nursed him as a baby but also that nothing would touch his life to the point that Moses grew up in the very safety of Pharaoh's royalty that he would one day have to lead and deliver his people from.

To be continued...GOD BLESS.
