KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 2:6 ” And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, this is one of the Hebrews’ children”.
Faith in God will always bring amazing results. The Pharaoh’s daughter and her entourage saw the basket only to open it and find a crying baby. The bible said she was filled with compassion for the baby. The very ‘beast’ looking for the child’s life to destroy it, becomes the very place of refuge for the baby. This is a miracle. Never be afraid to trust the Lord for your needs and protection.
How can one express an absolute confidence in God? You may do this by turning your mind and heart from the challenges unto what God has said. It is His word in your heart that gives birth to faith. Faith is not a feeling. It is also not reasoning things out. It is not dependent on your ability to analyse. All these things would make faith weak. Faith is purely confidence in God and his word. It is rather unreasonable yet God’s track record has always been faithfulness towards all those who showed confidence in Him. Romans 10:12 ” For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him”.
Moses senior sister Miriam went to Pharaoh’s daughter and told her she could get a Jewish nurse to take care of the baby. Why didn’t Pharaoh’s daughter say she would rather prefer an Egyptian nurse? God was perfectly in charge because he had been given the right to be in charge through his mother’s faith. Many times, people do not allow God to fully be in charge. They release the problem say they have given it into God’s hands yet they worry. God always wants an hundred percent trust so he could work out hundred percent miracle.
The child was given back to Moses own mother to nurse him. This time she had full security for the child. No Egyptians soldier would come frightening her. She was paid again for taking care of her baby. This is the extra benefit of having absolute confidence in the Lord.
Verse 11 says when Moses was old, he went out to see his brethren, and saw an Egyptian molesting a Jew. He attacked him and killed him. Moses had the deliver instinct in him yet that approach was not how God was going to do it. It would take the supernatural arm to do it.
Many things need God’s supernatural power and we must allow him to show us how this would be done.
My faith is strong in the Lord because my life agenda is His agenda and He would always defend His name. He has forever been faithful to all those who placed their confidence in Him. My case is not an exemption.
Romans 4:19 ” And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:”
1 Samuel 17:47 ” And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands”.
