God’s ‘Faith-full’ Daughter – Miriam!!

  • NOW [Amram] a man of the house of Levi [the priestly tribe] went and took as his wife [Jochebed] a daughter of Levi. And the woman became pregnant and bore a son; and when she saw that he was [exceedingly] beautiful, she hid him three months (Ex 2:1)

Hey Neighbor!

Today is Friday, April 29th and It’s My Birthday!!

Today I am blessed by the Lord to have turned 49 years old. 🥳

Thank You Jesus!!🙏🏾

I am so grateful for one more day to bask in God’s glorious grace and His enduring mercies!!

Now, Today I also have Your Super- Faith Sunday Answer: Who Is She??

She is Miriam!!

**************************************

She is Moses’ older sister…and she was just a little girl when Moses’ mother, Jochebed hid Moses in a basket amongst the rushes by the brink of the Nile.

Scripture gives us very little background about Miriam in Exodus 2, but it does reveal her dedication and concern for her little brother, Moses.

Now can you imagine being present at a time like this??

Your infant sibling’s life has just been spared and preserved by one of God’s ‘faith-full’ midwives…

Remember, Shiprah and Puah feared and revered God and refused to carry out Pharoah’s live-abortion edict from the birthing stool!!

Now when this evil plan failed, Pharaoh decided to proceed with a more evil genocidal edict; killing all the male Hebrew children on site.

  • Then Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son born [to the Hebrews] you shall cast into the river [Nile], but every daughter you shall allow to live (Exodus 1:22)

This is where we first meet Miriam, at the Nile River – where she is watching and waiting to see what is to become of her baby brother Moses, who is in the papyrus basket.

No!!

Scripture does not give us very much insight into the heart and thoughts of this little girl- but there is a clear indication that she loves Moses and like most children, she regretted seeing her family torn apart by Pharaoh’s evil edict.

So we find ‘Faith-full’ Miriam present and – on the scene as her baby brother is rescued from the Nile by Pharaoh’s daughter!

Wow!

Look at that – God has sent the daughter of the Hebrew’s persecutor to deliver Moses – who would someday become the deliverer of the Hebrew people!!

God had sent Pharoah’s daughter as his Lifeguard to rescue him from the River and to rescind her father’s death sentence against this man child’s life.

When Miriam saw Pharoah’s daughter holding her brother, the spirit of the Lord must have caused her to spring into action with information, provision, and resources.

This little girl spoke up quickly – preserving her family…

‘Faith-fully’ recommending the child’s own mother to serve as his nurse, unbeknownst to Pharaoh’s daughter.

Miriam quickly ran to retrieve her own mother to come and receive Moses from the hands of Pharoah’s daughter; reuniting mother and son, and restoring the family unit, and ultimately removing the threat against Moses’ life!!

No longer would Jochebed be forced to hide and to hush her sons cries!!

No longer would Jochebed nurse her son in fear!!

No longer would should she lay awake at night, worrying and anticipating a thud at the door; as Egyptian soldiers break-in to raid her home and snatch her baby boy from the safety of her arms!!

Any threat to or against the life of this man child, Moses, would now be struck down by Pharoah- himself!!

God is ALWAYS FAITHFUL!!

Not only has God returned Moses to his own mother’s bosom, but He has also caused the Egyptian armies who sought his life to now serve as Moses’ very own bodyguards , protecting and securing the doors @ Amram’s House!!

And for the Double-Bonus Round…

God has even caused and required Pharaoh to provide Jochebed with compensation to care for, and to nurse her very own son!!

Amazing!!

Is there anything too hard or too wonderful for Our Lord??
