So, when was the last time you worried about anything? Think God is too unconcerned with you to worry about the details of your life? Think He is too small and impotent to work out your circumstances? Consider this verse from today’s reading: "Pharaoh’s daughter said, 'Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.'" (vs 9)
Perhaps it seems simple enough... on the surface. However, consider that the baby (Moses) was supposed to be dead because Pharaoh had ordered that all the male Hebrew boys were supposed to be dead. And his mother (the woman Pharaoh’s daughter was talking to) had hidden him in the reeds, hoping for nothing more than that he would survive. And then you realize that not only was Moses’ mother going to get her wish, but she was also going to get paid for being his mom.
Isn’t that incredible? God is some kind of genius, that’s for sure! Who else could arrange matters so a person could get compensated for the very thing she wanted to do?! (I know a lot of women who would love to get paid for being a mom!) Faced with an impossible decree—to kill her newborn son—this Levite woman chose to trust God instead, and she ended up with a situation beyond her wildest imaginations.
What "impossible" situation are you facing in life? I’ve faced a few, and time and time again, I have seen that God is an utter genius. He knows things that we can’t possibly know. He sees things that we can’t possibly see. He does things that we can’t possibly do. Even when we can’t see a way out, He can make a way out. He can turn circumstances that seem hopeless into situations that benefit us.
He is a total genius!
