When his tiny fingers gently moved around her hands, her heart melted. It was love at first sight.
She knew he was one of the abandoned babies. She knew he was destined to die as per the law of the land. She knew he was not of her status, and definitely not an Egyptian.
But she couldn’t resist herself. She carefully lifted the tiny being, and brought him home!
She raised him up as her own son.
Wow! What an expected favour from God. What a sudden turn of events!
The baby who would’ve otherwise been to the grave is now in the palace – growing up as a son of the Pharaoh.

When thousand other Hebrew male babies were abandoned and killed, this one, Moses, survived, thanks to the unexpected favour from God.
God’s favour will come to you from unexpected corners.
God’s favour is able to lift you from the pit, however deep, and place you on the rock (1 Sam 16).
His favour will turn your circumstance upside down. It will reverse your situation by 180 degrees (Gen 41:41).
When his favour is upon you, you will reap a hundred-fold even during the drought (Gen 26:12).
Lev 26:9 – For I will look on you favorably and make you fruitful, multiply you and confirm My covenant with you.
