I love the story of Moses, and how God shines through every part of it.
God orchestrated Pharaoh’s daughter finding Moses and raising him in the palace so he would be familiar with the royal household and how things worked.
God gave Miriam the courage to speak up to the princess and the wisdom to offer her and Moses’ mother to nurse him, giving him the opportunity to have the Jewish faith impressed upon him at an early age.
God chose Moses right from the beginning, preparing him for the leadership role He had planned.
But He didn’t choose Moses because he was overwhelmingly qualified! Indeed, he murdered a man, fled for forty years, and gave God all kinds of excuses as to why he couldn’t lead the people.
But God chose him, and God strengthened him, and God turned him into one of the greatest leaders Israel had ever known.
All glory be to God!
Tomorrow is catch up day!
