Today’s Passage – Exodus 1 – 3 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers also read – Mark 11 – 12Proverbs 20Psalms 96 – 100)

Listen to this morning’s Scripture Song – Psalm 121

Read the “0120 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

  Pharaoh’s Daughter

 “And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.   And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.  And when she could not 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.  And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.  And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.  And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”   (Exodus 2:1-6)

Today, in the world’s eyes, being important and well known is everything. But, is it really?  Pharaoh’s daughter was educated, powerful, and well known in her time.  She had all that anyone could ever have: wealth, servants, beautiful clothing….  Her father was the ruler of Egypt.  He just commanded, that all Hebrew boys 2 years old and younger be drowned in the Nile River.  When she saw the baby, the Bible says she had compassion on him.  She was brave enough to disobey her father and kept the baby.  She would later raise Moses in the house of Pharaoh.  The education, and training, helped Moses in many areas of his life; and God used him in a mighty way.

Even with the important role she played, and what she did, no one knows her name.  The Bible doesn’t say if she came to know the God of the Hebrews, but God placed the right woman in the right place at the right time.

How many people do you know that may be unsaved that performs good deeds?  A coworker, a family member, your friends.  God can use the unsaved to fulfill his will in our lives.  God can use different people to fulfill His goals.  However, He never forces them to have faith in Him.

There are many daughters of Pharaoh living among us.  They are guided by God and doing His will but lost.    We see them and think all is well.  They have it all, as Pharaoh’s daughter, and yet they have nothing.

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”     (Matthew 16:26)

Will you reach out to one today?  Will you give them a tract or invite them to church?  We can all rejoice when they come to know Jesus too!

“Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”  (Matthew 9:37-38)

Thank You

1 John 5:13
