The pieces are falling into place.
He’s creating one piece, changing the shape of another and he is moving all in the pieces in the direction they need to go. Gradually – piece by piece – they fit exactly where he planned.
God is the Master Conductor of the Orchestra of Life for those of us who have accepted salvation through Jesus Christ. God has promised that he is working all things out for the good of those who love him.
God has been doing this since the beginning of time. It’s interesting to read how he orchestrates his purpose all through the story of Moses. When Moses was born, Pharaoh had ordered that all Hebrew baby boys must be killed. Pharaoh thought there were too many Hebrew men already and was concerned they could rise up and overpower the Egyptians.
Moses’ parents were able to hide their infant son for 3 months. When his mother could no longer hide him, she made a water-proof basket for him and placed him in the Nile River.
Very soon, Pharaoh’s daughter came down to bathe in the Nile and she saw the basket.
Of course, she did. God made sure of it.
When she opened the basket, she saw the baby and realized he was a Hebrew child who was very hungry. Moses’ sister had been watching the basket so she walked up to Pharaoh’s daughter. “Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby?” Exodus 2:7. Pharaoh’s daughter agreed and said she would pay the woman who took care of the baby.
Of course, she did. God had this puzzle all figured out. Only he could arrange a situation where Moses’ mother could now publicly take care of her son until he was older – and she got paid for it.
This was just the first puzzle piece for Moses. As we read Exodus, we see God’s hand moving in every step of Moses’ life.
This same God wants to be a part of everything that happens to you, too.
Looking back, I can see God orchestrating my life – moving mountains, parting rivers, putting the pieces of my life together in a unique way which only he can do.
As I start a new year, God has told me some of the things he has planned for me but I’m just going to need to trust him for the rest. I know he loves me and wants the best for me so I am prepared to watch….
and see the puzzle pieces fall right into place.
Thank you, Abba Father.
