5 Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the riverbank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her female slave to get it. 6 She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said.

Who can tell what/who God is going to use next to further a great purpose? As someone said, ‘Great doors turn on small hinges.’ We may well be surprised. Warren Wiersbe observes that a baby’s tears moved the heart of a powerful princess. Pharaoh’s own daughter was now defying her own father’s edict. Who would have thought it? ‘God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform…’ He is ‘the God of surprises. In what ways has He surprised you?

The Bible describes the world as it really is, and in this world God’s presence is everywhere, and nothing is beyond His power.

‘Many who, by their birth, are obscure and poor, by surprising events of Providence, are raised high in the world, to make men know that God rules.’ Matthew Henry.
