The Mother of Moses

As I studied the birth of Moses, it occurred to me that his mother must have had enormous faith in God.  One can only imagine the fear of putting your infant in a homemade ark near a river.  After the Pharaoh’s daughter found him, Moses’ sister volunteered to find a Hebrew woman (which was Moses’ mother) to nurse him.  Not only did she nurse him, but received wages to do so.  No one but God could have outlined that!  Everyone was blessed which happens every time we listen and obey Him.

Psalms 145:20 states “The Lord preserveth all them that love Him:”  How very comforting!  To me, that is so much more than a nice Bible story from my childhood but a lesson on Love, trust and faith.  God always takes one all the way; never just part way.  I will remember this today when doubt tries to sneak in to my thinking about anything.

Noah and The Flood

While reading the story of Noah and the ark in Genesis, there was a couple of points that really stood out to me.  Genesis 5:16 states “You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.”  This means to me that Noah could look up not out over the devastation and destruction.  Shouldn’t we look toward God as well? Keep our focus on God and not, the negative.   Also, he followed every instruction and there is no where that any type of steering device was mentioned.  Doesn’t that mean that God has the wheel?  That is applicable today.  God has the wheel!

Today I will practice listening and not deciding what is best for me.
