Are you in need of rescue?

Read: Exodus 2

Have you ever needed to be rescued? Whether it’s a conversation with your crazy great aunt at a Christmas get-together or the traffic jam that interrupts your morning commute, we have all found ourselves needing rescue from something.  

Exodus 2 tells the story of a baby and a nation in dire need of rescue. At a time when a maniacal king was executing infants and senseless violence ruled the day, God was in control and He had something better for His people.

There’s nothing to suggest that Moses’ mother had a grand plan when she placed him in a basket on the Nile. The Bible seems to indicate that she’d simply run out of options and found herself with an impossible choice. She knew Moses would be found and killed if she kept him, so she did the only thing she knew to do to keep him alive a little longer. No doubt, that decision was made with agonizing fear and uncertainty.

There are times in life when we find ourselves in seemingly impossible situations. We may think there is no way out. At these times, our faith can be the quality that sees us through the difficulty in our lives. God is faithful, and He wants something better for us. Even when we face an impossible situation, God is there and He is in control.   

As Moses drifted down the Nile, he couldn’t do anything to bring himself out of this crisis, but Moses had been set apart by God. If we are believers, we have been set apart by God in the same way Moses was, and we can trust God to be faithful in the seemingly impossible situations in our lives.

Reflect:

  • What part of your life is out of control?
  • What is one thing you can do to give that situation over to the care of God?
