February One

Okay I will say it. "Oh my gooses, how is it already February". But...not reallly. January seemed normal length, almost long to me. Because of the 5 weeks and 31 days. I am not where I want to be financialy on Feb 1. But God will provide and I will be by March 1. I am very proud of myself. I have done 31 days of this blog. I have been faithful. (insert smile) My goal is to get it out there more this month so I can have more input. I love what I have learned this month already and am excited what is more to come.

The Israelites in Egypt
In Exodus 1:21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own. I am probably reading too much into it but did midwives not have families or children back then???

The birth of Moses
I love this story. I can hear it over and over. I love telling it to my girls.

Moses escapes to Midiah
I haven't read this before. I knew Moses was a murderer so woohoo I love learning. Exodus 2:12 After looking in all directions to make sure no one was watching. Moses killed the egyptian and hid the body in the sand. WHOA!!
?--> Exodus 2:23b-25 They cried out for help, and their cry rose up to God. God heard their groaning, and he remembered his covenant promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He looked down on the people of Israel and knew it was time to act. When I read this it gives me a picture of God busy in heaven and he just now hears their crys and was like doo da doooo oh yeah I remember that promise I made ( not to mock God in any way) It is just how it feels when I read it/????? Help!! Doesn't he always hear all of our prayers???? and crys for help?

Moses' family tree

Moses and the burning bush
?'s --->In Exodus 3:14 God replied to Moses,"I Am Who I Am' 3:15 God also said to Moses," Say this to the people of Israel: Yahweh, the God of you ancestors-th God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob-has sent me to you. This is my eternal name.. my name to remember for all generations. What do all of these names mean. 3:14 is capitalized as shown. Help. In 3:22 Every Israelite woman will ask for articles of silver and gold and fine clothing from her Egyptian neighbors and from the foreign women in their houses. You will dress your sons and daughters with these, stripping the Egyptians of their wealth." Are the Egyptians in a transe of some kind or in fear? Why would they give these riches to the Israelites when the do not like them? Oh!! Is the king of Egypt's name Pharaoh???? (go ahead and laugh...) I thought that was his title. "The Pharaoh"

Signs of the Lord's power
I love that the scripture shows Moses being scared and knowing he is not able and God tells him that it will be okay He will be with him. Like me. I get scared that I cant do things but I know God can.

I take that to mean that the midwives didn't have children yet, maybe even weren't married, so God blessed them with a family.

God hears the cries of His people but sometimes He has a reason for remaining silent.

The Egyptians gave the Israelites all their belongings because God put that in their hearts to do so, and after having gone through ALL 10 plagues, the last one being where so many died, I think there was some fear in there too!

Pharaoh is the king's title just like we call our leader the President. It was not his name.
