Courageous Motherhood: Exodus 2:1-10

About This Message

Courageous Mothers Do Four Things…

 1. HIDE

Pharaoh then commanded all his people: “You must throw every son born to the Hebrews into the Nile, but let every daughter live.”  Now a man from the family of Levi married a Levite woman.  The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son; when she saw that he was beautiful, she hid him for three months.
Exodus 1:22-2:2 (CSB)

By faith Moses, after he was born, was hidden by his parents for three months, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they didn’t fear the king’s edict.
Hebrews 11:23 (CSB)

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:3 (NIV)

2. PREPARE

But when she could no longer hide him, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with asphalt and pitch…
Exodus 2:3 (CSB)

3. LAUNCH

But when she could no longer hide him, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with asphalt and pitch.  She placed the child in it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile.  Then his sister stood at a distance in order to see what would happen to him.
Exodus 2:3-4 (CSB)

Sons are indeed a heritage from the Lord, offspring, a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons born in one’s youth.  Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them. They will never be put to shame when they speak with their enemies at the city gate.
Psalm 127:3-5 (CSB)

4. RAISE

Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Should I go and call a Hebrew woman who is nursing to nurse the boy for you?” “Go,” Pharaoh’s daughter told her.  So the girl went and called the boy’s mother.  Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will pay your wages.”  So the woman took the boy and nursed him.  When the child grew older, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son.  She named him Moses, “Because,” she said, “I drew him out of the water.”
Exodus 2:7-10 (CSB)
