Exodus 2:5-6

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. 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.

The shocking thing about this story is that Moses was protected and raised by the very people who were massacring every newborn Hebrew boy they could find. The great deliverer of the Jews was nurtured by the Egyptians. Do you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances? Remember that God can use anything to bring about His purposes.
