Pharaoh had ordered the midwives to kill all the male children at birth, but Moses’ parents had faith that God would take care of their son so they hid him for three months. Then, by faith, they put in a basket in the Nile so that he might be discovered by the Egyptians. Pharaoh’s daughter probably never realized that she had been chosen by God to play a huge part in the deliverance of God’s children from Egypt. Moses was taken care of very well by the Egyptians. Later, by faith, he refused to carry on the masquerade, but rather chose to suffer with his Hebrew brethren. By faith, he realized that being offended for God was better than anything the world had to offer him. By faith, Moses stood against Pharaoh and without fear, he led the Israelites out of Egypt taking tons of their wealth with them. By faith, He followed the instructions of an invisible God and went out looking for a city not made by hands, his heavenly reward. By faith, Moses understood that
No one can please God without faith. Whoever goes to God must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who seek him.–Hebrews 11:6 (GW)
We must remain faithful even when we can’t see the end result with our human eyes. We must press on knowing that we shall receive our rewards.
