Born For a Purpose in the Kingdom of God

Exodus 2: Born For a Purpose in the Kingdom of God: The Charm of Home

About this time, a man and woman from the tribe of Levi got married.The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She saw that he was a special baby and kept him hidden for three months. But when she could no longer hide him, she got a basket made of papyrus reeds and waterproofed it with tar and pitch. She put the baby in the basket and laid it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile River. The baby’s sister then stood at a distance, watching to see what would happen to him.
Soon Pharaoh’s daughter came down to bathe in the river, and her attendants walked along the riverbank. When the princess saw the basket among the reeds, she sent her maid to get it for her. When the princess opened it, she saw the baby. The little boy was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This must be one of the Hebrew children,” she said.
Then the baby’s sister approached the princess. “Should I go and find one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?” she asked.
“Yes, do!” the princess replied. So the girl went and called the baby’s mother.
“Take this baby and nurse him for me,” the princess told the baby’s mother. “I will pay you for your help.” So the woman took her baby home and nursed him.
10 Later, when the boy was older, his mother brought him back to Pharaoh’s daughter, who adopted him as her own son. The princess named him Moses,[a] for she explained, “I lifted him out of the water.”
Exodus 2: 1-10
When Moses was born there was a decree sent out to kill all baby boys born to the Hebrew women. The Lord protected Moses and he did not die. The Lord had plans for Moses. The Lord has plans for you. When you do the Lord's will you can do miraculous things. God is the only one who can turn your life around like that.
All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,

The story of Miriam and God's provision in great adversity is an amazing one. It is a powerful lesson and thank you for the reminder!

Yes, God has a plan for every one of us. I relate so well to the story of Moses. His life was not perfect, but God used Him in a mighty way for His kingdom. And He will do the same in our lives if we let Him! Blessings to you!
