Drawn Out of Death and Into Life

“When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, ‘I drew him out of the water.’ ”

– Exodus 2:10

As fear of the Hebrews taking over Egypt gripped Pharaoh’s heart, he commanded that all Jewish baby boys be killed. Certainly that would stop their population from increasing (or so he thought). Moses’ mother tried hiding him for three months, but ultimately obeyed Pharaoh’s command and threw him in the Nile River, but not to drown. Instead, she placed him in a basket and hid him among the reeds. Miriam, the baby’s older sister, kept an eye on that basket.

Miraculously, the basket was discovered by Pharaoh’s daughter, who immediately fell in love with the Hebrew child. She sent her servant to retrieve the baby and then decided she was going to raise him and call him her son. Seeing an opportunity, his sister spoke up and offered to find a Jewish woman to nurse the child. When the princess said “yes” to her offer, Miriam told her mom, and Moses spent the first few years of his life being raised by his own mother and an Egyptian princess. Interestingly, Pharaoh’s daughter named the child Moses, which means “to be drawn out of death into life.”

Friend, you too have been drawn out of death and into life! The moment you received Jesus Christ as your Savior, Satan’s attempt to destroy you was nailed to the cross and redeemed. Yes, you will face trying circumstances and dark moments, but the God of angel armies is working on your behalf to orchestrate an outcome that is beyond comprehension. No matter what, stand firm and know that the Lord is on your side. He is taking care of you and working all things together for your good!

Prayer


Jesus, thank you for drawing me out of death and into life.

  1. I really appreciate the explanation of different events of the Bible. I didn’t realize Moses’s mother got to nurse him after he was discovered. Just how the Lord looks after all circumstances is so reassuring. Thank you so much Pastor Bobby for your insightful and reassuring messages. I start each day reading them and they reinforce my faith.

  2. I am blessed by this message, “drawn out of death into life.” Thank you for making it available to me. My sister passed a week ago and I have been gripped by sadness. This message has given me hope and has brought comfort to my heart.

  3. Not really a comment but more about asking for prayer that GOD help me and my wife find a place to live and find me work. We are believing and trusting in GOD but as humans we sometimes get doubtful in dark times.
    Thank You Abe and Nicole

  4. I alway really appreciate your sermons. I am in Casper, WY. Reading you daily. Jesus is my Lord and Savior. He has saved me from SO much abuse from my father and 26 years of marriage with my husband. On his death bed he admitted to all the abuse. I forgave him and prayed with him to receive Jesus and say the Lord’s Prayer. I have 6 children with 4 living. Plus 9 Grandchildren. Jesus loves you!!❤️

  5. Shalom alle mit einander ,
    nach meinem jetzigen Erkenntnisstand ist Satan ein Energiefeld welches durch den Missbrauch gefüttert wird .
    Hört der Missbrauch auf , ist dieses Feld weg .
    Erfüllte Tage Euch
