“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.“
She came to the river for a specific task, but the Lord had a greater purpose.
She had her maids fetch the ark that she saw, and her heart was touched by what was inside.
“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.”
She was moved with compassion to meet the needs of the child.
She named Moses.
“And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.”
God saw His plan for him from the moment he was placed in the ark of bulrushes. The Lord used her to preserve and protect the life of Moses, the man that God used to lead His people out of bondage. The faith of Moses is referred to throughout the entire canon of Scripture.
Pharaoh’s Daughter serves as an example that God directs and orders the steps of those whom He uses to fulfill His purpose.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.”
Jeremiah 9-10 | John 11 | Psalm 23
