Blessings of Provision

In Exodus 2, we see Jochebed defying Pharaoh’s command to destroy her newborn son. After three months in seclusion, and being able to hide him no longer, she placed him in a watertight crib and set it afloat in the Nile. Sovereignty guided the currents to Pharaoh’s daughter's home. Miriam, Jochebed's oldest child, shadowed the crib and watched as the Princess affectionately drew the child from the river, naming him Moses.

Miriam the ran to inquire whether the Princess would like to have a Hebrew mother nurse the child. Finding favor with the idea, she sends Miriam to select a wet nurse-- her mother was all too willing! Pharaoh’s daughter then says to Jochebed, "Take this child away and nurse him for me and I will give you your wages."
