Ex. 2: 6,7; 9,10 Thought/Prayer: What Did the The Princess Think? Topics: 2 at end.
And when she, the daughter of Egypt’s pharaoh, had opened it (the basket in which rested the baby Moses), she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.
Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.
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. KJV, Bible.com
Obviously, we do not know what an Egyptian princess thought when she saw the little basket containing baby Moses in the river. So what did this princess-rescuer think? Maybe she thought this baby was the most beautiful thing in the world. Maybe she caught her breath when she studied his tiny, tear-streaked face. She surely must have exclaimed about him to her lady attendants. We do know that she was of a compassionate heart toward this wee discovery; we’re told this. It’s pretty amazing.
We know that she was delighted to find him, but yet she had presence of mind to enlist Moses’ waiting sister to find a way to feed this child. The sister does not identify Moses’ nurse by name to the princess in this Old-Testament account, but we know that it was his rejoicing mother who lovingly held and nursed him.
God planned this entire scene, of course, but still, the world holds a great debt to this Egyptian princess. She was pagan, but God used her, giving her a great heart. It didn’t matter to her that this was a non-Egyptian baby. She loved him anyway. And it would be quite interesting to know, in wonder, what was thought and said in the palace when it was known that this Hebrew child would be brought there to grow up!
Lord, we thank you for this lady. We know but little of her, but we can love her because of what she did for the world. We praise you for such plans and such persons You use, for your plans for the baby-the-Messiah, and all babies.
Topics: Pray for the unbelievers that God will use for His plans, even today and tomorrow, especially those who deal with little babies and children.
