(KJV.) EXODUS 2:7-9
(7) Then said his sister to Pharoah's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
(8) And Pharoah daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.
(9) And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child and nursed it.
Brethren, we all know the story of Moses in the book of Exodus, his birth, growth and how he was used mightily by our Father, to deliver his chosen ones out of the bondage; however, in a nutshell, after Joseph died, there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph, as the children of our Father grew mightier than the citizens; he advised the Hebrew midwives to kill every male born babies, but save the lives of the female babies; however, the midwives were godfearing and did not act upon his words; therefore, our Father saved their lives from the hands of the king, and blessed them abundantly; therefore, as believers, at times when we are under pressures to comply with evil works, let us follow our consciences, allow the holy spirit to guide our thought processes to do the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, never compromise the purposes of our Father, for worldly desires.
Subsequently, Moses was born to a Hebrew mother, who hid him in the house for three months to save his life from the king, when she could no longer hide him from the public, laid him in a small ark of bulrushes, and left him on the river banks where the daughter of Pharoah normally bathed, while his sister watched from afar to see what will happen to him; the daughter of Pharoah walked along the riverside with her maidens, she found the baby crying, immediately she had compassion on him, drew him out the water; this is also the handiwork of our Father, his technical engineering capabilities to accomplish his purposes in human lives; Therefore, whenever he has an agenda for human lives, from birth to the end of our days, Jesus engineers all things together to accomplish his purposes; from within our innermost spirits, to shine throughout the entire world, therefore, when things happen, positively or negatively in believers lives, let us not be agitated, but know that Jesus is in control of our lives, working all things together for good, and there are no coincidences of life.
Then said his sister to Pharoah's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? wait a minute here! Excuse me, where did you come from? This is the question anyone would expect Pharoahs daughter to ask the maid, but did she asked her any question? no! she did not, if she did, it was not recorded in the text, however, she commanded her to go, she went and called the child's mother, Pharoah's daughter gave her the child to nurse for wages; here is another miraculous ways of our Father, first of all, Pharoah's daughter, should have asked numerous questions before hiring the woman to nurse the child, but the text did not mention if she did; however, our Father, used the same avenue of faith to bless the mother of the child, while she nursed her own baby with love, good health, and growth; you see! at times, all it takes for us to receive our blessings, are to take the steps of faith, one step at a time, Jesus will take care of the rest of our undertakings: secondly, the Hebrew woman who nursed Moses, believed that if she hides her baby from the king, he will not lay hands to kill him; as the result of her faith with works, Moses life was not destroyed by him, but end up in the palace as the grandson of king Pharoah, who wanted to kill him in the first place; therefore, let us not take our Father for granted, his ways are mysterous, and his wonders are performed in his own creation forever and evermore.
Dearly beloved, the thing is, if the mighty creator of all things, appoints his people as instruments, before foundation of the world; he engineers all things of this world to accomplish his purposes in their lives; therefore, as believers, regardless of what may bewail our souls in this present times, let us know for sure that Jesus Christ is aware of them all, has everything under control, though there may be hurdles to overcome through our sufferings, regardless, his will shall be done in due times; let us be encouraged not to take our eyes off Jesus Christ, but to trust in him with all our hearts, he is our strength and shield through difficult times. Amen and Amen!
