As you read through Exodus 1, you might get the impression that God was, well, absent. The God who was so involved in orchestrating Jacob’s family to come to Egypt now, four hundred years later, seems awfully quiet. But then in chapter 2, we read of a mother, in desperation, placing her baby along the bank of the Nile. What happens next can only be explained as God’s hand at work.
That baby is discovered by Pharaoh’s own daughter, who had compassion on him. And then, if that were not amazing enough, Pharaoh’s daughter agreed to have Moses’ mother nurse him until he was weaned, at about three or four years old. With this account opening Exodus 2, any thought we may have had that God was absent or disinterested in Exodus 1 comes crashing down. God may seem quiet at times, but He is never inactive. God was at work behind the scenes in Exodus, just as He is at work in our lives today—whether we see it or not.
What is an area of your life that you need to trust that God is working in and through?
