Heavenly Father, I want to hear Your voice. I want to hear what You have for me. Help me listen when You are speaking. It doesn’t matter if it’s through another person, a sermon, while I’m reading Your word, or just sitting in silence, I know You can speak to me at any time under any circumstance and I don’t want to miss what You have to say to me. Help me always be listening for Your whispers. Help me hear them and be obedient. Help me remember Your way is always best, even if it isn’t always easiest.
Thank You for guiding me, comforting me, and loving me.
In Jesus’ name.
What an amazing story of God’s grace and how He took care of this child that He knew would free His people someday.
How many times do we think something is a coincidence when it is God arranging things for His plan and His glory? I love it when God shows off and shows what an amazing God He is. He does it every single day, but so often we aren’t looking and listening for miracles because of the noise of life.
Take time today to just talk to God and listen for His whisper. He has amazing things to tell you and amazing ways He wants to use you.
Recently my 7-year-old granddaughter, Emma was staying with us and I heard her talking away while playing. I asked her who she was talking to because no one was with her. She said, “I’m just talking to myself. No one has to listen.” It made me wonder how often God is talking to me and I’m just not listening.
Now a man from the house of Levi went and took as his wife a Levite woman. 2 The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months. 3 When she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket made of bulrushes and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. She put the child in it and placed it among the reeds by the river bank. 4 And his sister stood at a distance to know what would be done to him. 5 Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her young women walked beside the river. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her servant woman, and she took it. 6 When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby was crying. She took pity on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews' children.” 7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, “Shall I go and call you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?” 8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, “Go.” So the girl went and called the child's mother. 9 And 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. 10 When the child grew older, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, “Because,” she said, “I drew him out of the water.”
