The plans I have for you are good. Bad things will happen, but I will be there to show you a good thing, to comfort you and bring you peace. Trust Me.


The power of redemption can come into your biggest, darkest nightmare. The power of redemption can come in and suddenly the thing that was so shameful is actually honorable to you. You got through it and look at what God has done.

Well, this brother’s name is “rescued.” In verse 11, we jump 40 years into the future.

“Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren.” – Exodus 2:11

Moses realizes he’s on the wrong team. It happens to all of us with a calling on our life. I can remember when it happened to me and I see it all the time. Suddenly, the people you hang with and the people you used to hang with, shifts. You look over at the people of God and you feel you’re supposed to be with those people instead. Hmmm.

Something draws you, even though you’re comfortable in Pharaoh’s house – celebrated, educated and a warrior or whatever Moses’ job or occupation was. He was obviously celebrated and called Pharaoh “grandpa.” He was literally raised in royalty.

It seems no matter how you were raised, God can wiggle His way in. He does this with great love for you!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28

God’s got good plans for you! He knows where you belong, and He always finds a way to get you there. It starts with rescue and ends with redemption.
