Serving God’s Purposes

“Now a man from the house of Levi went and married a daughter of Levi. 2The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that he was beautiful, she hid him for three months. 3But when she could hide him no longer, she got him a wicker basket and covered it over with tar and pitch. Then she put the child into it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile. 4His sister stood at a distance to find out what would happen to him. 5The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the Nile, with her maidens walking alongside the Nile; and she saw the basket among the reeds and sent her maid, and she brought it to her. 6When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the boy was crying. And she had pity on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.” 7Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and call a nurse for you from the Hebrew women that she may nurse the child for you?” 8Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go ahead.” So the girl went and called the child’s mother. 9Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me and I will give you your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. 10The child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. And she named him Moses, and said, “Because I drew him out of the water.”
As God’s people continued in hard labor and slavery at the hands of the Egyptians, God listened to their cries for help. In His providence a baby boy was born and spared from the kings edict of murder for all Hebrew male children. As a matter of fact, the baby was put into a basket and set into the Nile River and Pharaoh’s own daughter took him to be her son. Moses was raised in Pharaoh’s palace by his own biological mother who taught him about his Hebrew heritage. Moses grew to manhood and at the age of forty circumstances led to him leaving Egypt and traveling to the land of Midian where he would live for another forty years as a shepherd for his father-in-law. God was tempering Moses for the task he had ahead of him.
One of the most important parts of life is learning what our role is in serving God. It might be in a role wherein we influence many people to become Christians or it may be a simple “behind-the-scenes” role where we play a more supportive role with little or no fanfare. The main thing is serving God to our greatest ability and being a faithful child of His to bring glory and honor to Him.
