Do our choices really make a difference? Yes! When we carefully—and creatively—invest our love for God, He can do great things through us. Our choices, stacked one upon another like dominoes in a row, influence the events in our lives, in the lives of others, and in our world. In 32 verses in Exodus, we’re introduced to six people, one man and five women, who made a difference simply by investing themselves in the situation before them. One made evil choices with disastrous results and yet even there, God brought about ultimate good. Five others made good choices, one stacked upon another, creating a powerful legacy of influence.
Every choice we make in life has a consequence down the road. Some are good—and others not so good! In this chapter, you’ll look at the first major character in the story of Moses—Pharaoh—and see his failed attempt to undermine God with a wicked plan.
When the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, Pharaoh became fearful of their growing numbers. So he enlisted two midwives to carry out an evil plan. In this chapter, you’ll see how the midwives responded to Pharaoh’s command—and how their decision changed the world forever.
At different points along the way, parenting involves relinquishing our kids to the care of others, and to God. And many thousands of years ago, an Israelite mother made that difficult choice. In this chapter, you’ll consider when Moses’ mother placed her son in a basket on the Nile River.
At this very moment, God is working out a great plan behind the scenes. And everyone is playing an important role—whether they know it or not! In this chapter, you’ll see how God used a compassionate Egyptian woman to change the course of history.
God can use anyone and everyone to accomplish His plan. We just need to be willing to answer His call! In this chapter, you’ll see how God used a Hebrew child to eventually save an entire nation.
