Exodus 2:2(NASB) The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw [b]that he was [c]beautiful, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got him a [d]wicker [e]basket and covered it over with tar and pitch. Then she put the child into it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile.
Pharaoh ordered that every male born to the Hebrews be thrown in the Nile. Moses was born during this time and, after three months, his mother realized she could hide him no longer. Imagine her pain and worry as she left him in the basket among the reeds in the Nile River! She did not know what the future held, but she released her son by her faith in God. We have to learn that our children are in God hands! Today’s message is to Parents, Grandparents, Spiritual leaders, Mentors, and parents in the making!
Some moments bring a special awareness that we, too, are releasing our children to God. Saying goodbye as we drop them off for their first day of kindergarten. Handing them the car keys as they take it out for a drive on their own. Watching them stand at the altar and commit their life to another in marriage or even to the Lord in being saved. As you release your children, remember that God has a plan! The road may not always be easy, but have faith in the Lord’s Divine wisdom and eternal purposes. Great love to you all and have a marvelous day!
In the Love of God,
Pastor James Baker
