Summary: No matter what it looked like God was working in the mist of the life of Moses even before he was named. Because of the divine plan of God the ark was retrieved by of all people, Pharaohs’ daughter!

{Thank God for a Hearing ear & a receiving heart}

Exodus 2: 1- 10

(Exodus 2:10 KJV) And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, because I drew him out of the water.

Have you ever stop to ask yourself why am I here. Have you ever gotten to the point that you have asked the question why was I even born?

Job 3:1-3 MSG Then Job broke the silence. He spoke up and cursed his fate: (2) (SEE 3:1) (3) "Obliterate the day I was born. Blank out the night I was conceived!

I’m sure that even with Moses at one point or the other he felt this way. But the very meaning of his name showed us why he came. The Bible says that after that Moses was retreat from the Nile River by Pharaohs daughter that she named him Moses. The name Moses is said to mean the pulled or drawn out one. Her father Pharaoh had made the decreed that every male child would be cast into the River. But to save her child one Levi woman took her child and place him in a small basket that had been waterproofed with tar and pitch, and placed the child in it. The Bible said that the woman had made and ark. I know that this is a different ark, put one can not help but recall all of the arks that were present in the history of the Jewish people. Noah’s Ark, that save him and his people. Moses’ ark that saved him from death in the Nile River. Then there is what I would say was the most famous ark, the Ark of the Covenant, that was not pitched with tar as the ark of Noah or Moses, but with pure gold. Then upon the top of the Ark was a lip that was was called the mercy seat.

Exodus 25:18-22 KJV And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. (19) And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. (20) And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. (21) And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. (22) And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

Now if we are to correlate these two stories it is easy to see that Moses’ generation didn’t really meet God until the child Moses was place in the Ark as a testament of God, and it was he when he ws drawn or pull out to go forth and to be the testimony that Jehovah was still God.

After that the Levi woman made the ark she told her daughter to take it and placed it in the river. Now I’m not sure if she had planned for it to happen the way it did but the child ended up a right in the bathing area of the palace. Now it may not have been in her plan but one thing I know for sure it was in the divine plan and of God. No matter what it looked like God was working in the mist of the life of Moses even before he was named. Because of the divine plan of God the ark was retrieved by of all people, Pharaohs’ daughter! Mind you, it was Pharaoh that had made the decree that all the Hebrew male children should be cased into the River. Now let us be real, she has to know what the deal was with her father and how that he felt about the Hebrew children.

(Exodus 2:6 MSG) She opened it and saw the child--a baby crying! Her heart went out to him. She said, "This must be one of the Hebrew babies."

She knew it was a Hebrew child, but yet her heart when out.

Is there anyone in this room that can testify and help the rest of us out, by letting us know that God is so much God that he can cause even your enemy to be a blessing to you? Why we are sitting up wasting our time trying to figure out who doesn’t like us and who is against us God has a way of even using them. Who are your enemies?
