God would use the baby in the basket to bless millions of lives. In the midst of the sorrow, Pharaoh killing the male children of the Israelites, God used Pharaoh’s daughter to complete his plan. This child, slated to die, would now be raised in the finest home in Egypt. He would receive the best education, the finest of everything and be prepared to lead the nation–but, which nation.
We are each uniquely prepared to serve God. Our lives, our training, our location and our passion each help to dictate God’s mission for our lives. When we are let loose in the world, only God can see the plan he has. That is why he calls us to simply follow and allow him to place us in the right basket. There he can prepare us for the amazing journey he has laid out. If we will follow, there is no limit on how he can and will use us.
God Bless You
Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman,
and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months.
But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile.
Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the riverbank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her female slave to get it.
She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said.
When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”
