MEMORY VERSE: EXODUS 2:3; “And when she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink”
Moses was born at a critical time when Pharaoh, king of Egypt, had ordered the killing of every Hebrew male child that was newly born. Moses’ mother was not able to change Pharaoh’s inhuman law but took courageous steps of Faith by initially hiding this goodly child for three months.
Later, she put him in a small ark of bulrushes and laid it by the river brink with Mariam, Moses’ elder sister watching from afar, to see what would become of the child. God used her little efforts of acting in Faith to Reunite mother and son, placing Moses, a Hebrew in the house of Pharaoh; and also to begin the accomplishment of His Plan to Rescue Israel from Egypt through Moses.
Challenges, difficult circumstances, and trials are universal experiences to all, including the Christian. We are not exempted from the ups and downs of life. But the good news, however, is that Christ Overcame, and we shall also emerge victorious if we follow His Steps.
Whenever we are faced with the battles of life, we should act in Faith by trusting God to Take Care of us knowing that His Promises Can Never Fail. God Expects us to trust Him no matter the trials we are going through. You may feel you are in the bulrushes of life right now but all you need to do is to fix your eyes on Christ and He Will Show you the way out.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith in God brings consistent victory.
‘STAND IN FAITH’
“Stand in Faith: Even when you can’t see your way out.
Stand in Faith’: Knowing that He Can Change your situation.
Stand in Faith’: Even in those times you feel it’s hard to pray.
Stand in Faith’: And believe that He Has Already Made the way,
Faith is The Substance of things hoped for, The Evidence of things not seen,
So, stand in Faith because you already have The Victory!”
