Ever thought that you aren’t worthy to be one of God’s messengers? Not holy enough? Don’t come from the right family background? Consider Moses. Child of slaves. Put into a reed basket and floated down the Nile. Raised by pagans in the house of Pharoah. Taught that the Gods of Egypt were real. Yet he brought the people of Israel out of bondage and led them to the promised land.
Pharaoh’s daughter came down to the river to bathe,
while her maids walked along the river bank.
Noticing the basket among the reeds, she sent her handmaid to fetch it.
On opening it, she looked, and lo, there was a baby boy, crying!
She was moved with pity for him and said,
“It is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter,
“Shall I go and call one of the Hebrew women
to nurse the child for you?”
“Yes, do so,” she answered.
So the maiden went and called the child’s own mother.
Pharaoh’s daughter said to her,
“Take this child and nurse it for me, and I will repay you.”
The woman therefore took the child and nursed it.
When the child grew, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter,
who adopted him as her son and called him Moses;
for she said, “I drew him out of the water.”
The Lord has a plan for you. It doesn’t matter what circumstances you came from, nor does it matter what circumstances you are in today. Listen to the whisper of God. He is calling you to be his messenger and knows that you are capable of doing his will.
