In today’s episode, based on Hebrews 11, verse 23, we’re going to look at Jochebed and Amram. Not exactly household names. These were the parents of Moses and the author is going to use their actions concerning their newborn son as a further demonstration of biblical faith. Living in a day when the tide had turned against the people of Israel living in Egypt, they were forced to trust God with the life of their son. The Pharaoh was out to destroy him, along with all the other male Hebrew infants. And while the Pharaoh was considered a god by his own people, Jochebed and Amram were putting their faith and hope in the one true God.
In today’s episode, called “Waiting on God in faith,” we get another glimpse into the faith of Moses. This time, we’ll be looking at verse 27 in Hebrews chapter 11. Moses is forced to leave Egypt because he had killed an Egyptian. But did he leave in a state of fear or faith? The Exodus account seems to paint a slightly different picture than that of Hebrews. But when we combine these two divinely-inspired passages, we get a much clearer picture of what was going on and how Moses left Egypt by faith, not motivated by fear.

King Ahasuerus gets the royal snub when his queen refuses to put herself on displayh for the benefit of his drunken party guests. But this domestic dispute is going to have long-term and empire-wide ramifications that the king and his wise men could never have imagined.
