This map shows the Nile River which is where baby Moses was
found by Pharaoh's daughter!
During the time when Moses was born, the people of Israel were slaves in Egypt.
Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, was worried that there would be
too many Israelites to control if a war happened, so he sent out an order to
throw the Hebrew baby boys into the Nile River!
After Moses' birth, his mother hid him for three months but when she couldn't
keep him a secret any longer she put baby Moses in a basket that could float on
water and sent it off onto the river. God protected Moses and made the basket
float by Pharoah's daughter when she was bathing in the river. She knew he was a
Hebrew baby but he was crying and she felt sorry for him.
Moses' sister was watching this happen the whole time, so she asked Pharaoh's
daughter if she would want a Hebrew woman to nurse the baby and keep him
healthy. She said yes! Moses' sister went home and got her mom; she was able to
feed Moses until he grew older and the daughter of Pharaoh took him as her son.
God looks over His people, just like He watched and protected Moses. Not only
was Moses kept safe, he was also fed and taken care of by his own mother!
Remember that God is with you even when you feel all alone.
Exodus 2: 10 - The
child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son.
She named him Moses, and said, "Because I drew him out of the water."
The study of the baby Moses is very important in the study of the
Bible, let's pray:
Dear Jesus, we thank you that your plans are greater than
we can imagine. We thank you that you can use anyone.
Help us to trust your promises and to be thankful for your mercy. We love you. In Jesus name… Amen!
