Exodus 2:5-6 ” Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the river bank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her slave girl to get it. She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him.”

It was her own father, the Pharaoh, who had ordered the Hebrew midwives to kill all male babies when they were born, and it also says Pharaoh’s daughter recognized immediately that the baby was a Hebrew…so what (or more importantly Who) made her take pity on this infant in a papyrus basket hidden among the bulrushes? God had big plans for baby Moses…plans to deliver the Israelites from bondage and set them free…and no decree from Pharaoh, and certainly no adverse decision of Pharaoh’s daughter could deter God’s plan. So instead, this tiny Hebrew baby was raised in the Pharaoh’s palace, right under his nose. Which helps us realize that God can use any thing, person, or place to achieve His ultimate plan and purpose.
