The Biblical story of Moses is one of the most fascinating stories in the history of the world. Moses was born as a slave in Egypt, but when Pharaoh decided to kill all of the Hebrew boys, Moses’ parents placed him into a basket in the Nile River to hide him. In an amazing turn of events, the baby Moses was actually found by Pharaoh’s daughter, and she took him in as her own. So, Moses actually ended up being raised in the household of the man who was initially trying to kill him. As he grew up, he came to understand who he was as a Hebrew man. After killing an Egyptian, Moses was forced to flee to a place called Midian where he lived a very simple life for forty years all before God used him to change the course of human history. Your life may be in a scary or discouraging place right now, but let Moses be a reminder to you that God is still in control and always working.
