Today is Sunday, 4/24/2022 and for Us…
It’s another Super-Faith Sunday, where each Sunday, we feature one of the ‘faith-full’ females from the Bible.
Today we are in Exodus, with a ‘faith-full’ young girl, hoping and praying that God would rescue and spare the life of her little brother, who had been born into a time when a man child was seen as a threat; and therefore a evil millstone had been placed about his neck.
Here is Her Story.
Month after month she had helped her mother keep the child’s cries concealed. She was dutiful and obedient in every way to help keep her little brother quiet and content – and unnoticed!!
You see, her baby brother was an unwanted child.
Not unwanted by her mother and father, for he was indeed a beautiful baby, and her mother had adored him instantly!
Not unwanted by her, nor her other (older) brother, because they were both ecstatic about the arrival of their baby brother.
But this child was unwanted by the government!!
In fact, many of the expectant mothers were worried sick, having heard rumors that the midwives had partnered with the government to injure and kill the Israelite newborns at the birthing stool.
She remembered watching Shiprah so closely, when her mother’s time to deliver the child had come.
Her mother was in great pain, but instead of holding the cool towel to her mother’s forehead, she seemed paralyzed, she was unable to take her eyes off the midwife.
She watched as Miss Shiprah’s eyes filled with tears. She noticed how intently the woman stared at the newborn…she saw how the midwife studied the infant…she saw her reluctance and noticed her long hesitation, before she had finally cut the male child’s umbilical cord.
They had successfully hidden her brother now for 3 months, but today her mother seemed very sad and she was behaving very strangely toward the child.
She watched her mother wrap the child up and put him in a basket. How perfectly content her baby brother seemed, as he lay inside the basket…
It was obviously a difficult day for her mother…
Her head was hung so low, and she heard her mother’s repetitive sighs and tearful groaning. Her mother left with the baby in the basket, slowly closing the door behind her…
But she secretly followed behind her mom, watching her and pondering…
Why was her mother in such despair??
Why had she hidden her brother in this strange basket??
And why was she taking them both toward the river??
Again she watched her intently, but from afar.
She needed to see what her mother had intended with that basket, and most of all, she wanted to see what would become of her beautiful baby brother.
She watched as her mothers fingers released the basket, and as the downstream current caught hold of it – and now he was off and away – down the Nile River!!
She followed him from the shoreline as the basket progressed downstream.
She felt her little heart pounding in her chest, as she looked all about for crocodiles and other predatory animals…but what could she do??
She listened for his cries, as she continued to watch and follow him.
Still walking along the shoreline, sometimes running alongside, but all the while praying that no evil would befall her beautiful little brother.
What else could she do for him now??
She was just a little child!!
Only God could save her baby brother now!!
Who Is She??
