Welcome to another episode of our daily bible study, in today’s episode as we keep exploring the book of exodus, you will learn a powerful message from the bible. The title of this episode is, Push harder and harder.
In the book of Exodus chapter 1 vs 16 we read that Pharaoh made a proclamation mandating the Egyptian midwives to kill all male children born to the Israelites. This harsh and brutal proclamation must have sent shock waves down the spines of every Jewish parent. In fact, according to some Jewish interpretation of the scripture, Amram the father of Moses did not want to continue procreating after this proclamation, fearing that his child might eventually die because of this barbaric decree.
Later on, when Moses was born, his mother Jochebed nursed him for about three months but couldn’t keep him with herself any more than that. It was obvious to her that if the baby is found he will be killed by the Egyptians, but she did not for once rule out the possibility of a miracle happening. She knew that the possibility of the baby surviving could be less than on 1%, but she realized that her not trying to do anything at to save the baby gives her baby 0% of surviving. She went ahead to do something that might look very ridiculous. How could someone put his baby in a basket, dump him by the riverside and then expect a good Samaritan to pick him up for good? Jochebed’s decision may sound absurd, but it teaches us a very important lesson: Never give up!
We are living in world of unforeseen circumstances, the only thing we can do is try our best and leave the rest to God. It gets worse only when we give up. Remember that trying can give you less than 1% success, but not trying at all gives you absolute 1% failure. So, next time you are faced with a daunting challenge, don’t give up, do the best you can and wait for God’s miracle. Don’t give up. Push harder and harder, for God is still doing miracles and He will do it for you. Be strong and of good courage for you shall overcome.
