Exodus 2:5-6 “And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it. 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 Hebrew’s children.”
After 400 years another leader emerges, Moses. He will be trained and educated by royalty. Like Abraham he will be a man of faith. He will be a mediator between God and his people.
To read the story of Moses is to see God at work. He is the one that will lead the Israelites out of the slavery that they have been in since the days of Joseph.
Your love is new every morning. It fills my life and strengthens me to face another day. The pain in the world I see today, the feebleness of my body, my weakness to sin, makes me long for the day of your return. I pray, Lord, that until then I might live a life that exalts your name.
You have been with me all of my life. You have strengthened me, you have revealed your love for me. You have prevented me from ruining my life.You are worthy, O Lord, for all my praise, love and obedience.
I am in awe of you, Lord. When I consider the vastness of the universe in which our tiny blue planet spins, I am humbled. And yet, you the creator, loves me and wants to have a relationship with me. It overwhelms me.
You know that I am mortal, but you love me. You know that I am flawed but you redeemed me. You know that I am not perfect, but sent your only Son, as the perfect sacrifice to save me. Thank you, Lord.
I know that so many times I fail you, I sin, but your love is there, drawing me back to you. I can confess and return to you. You always accept me, I feel at peace going back to you. There is no judgment, only love. That unconditional love.
Lord, never let me become so involved in this world that I forget about you. The issues of life and death are in your hands. Whenever my time here is up and you call me home I want to be ready.
