Are Your Instincts Still In Your Mothers' Womb?
Moses was drawn out of the water in a moment of crisis, but his cultural connection was still in his mother's womb. The story of Moses (Exodus 2) bringing brought out of the waters of the Nile surrounded by crocodiles is inspirational at the least. The point about Moses' instinct was that he was a Hebrew child but grew up in an Egyptian household.
Train up a child, Proverbs 22:6. Moses learned things from Pharaoh's daughter, but his instinct came from his mother, and she taught him who he was and the ways of his people.
Never forget where you come from (Deuteronomy 6:20-23); this is the testimony of elders from different cultures, where the young are losing touch with their background because social media and television are raising them. The best-kept secrets are in books. The best experience is the Holy Bible!
And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.
God of Jacob, Elohe Yakob (Psalm 20:1), we thank You for the power of transference, the ability to exist in a foreign place and remember our heritage. We praise You for the instinct to protect our kindred with words of kindness and humility, keeping them wrapped in Love. We decree and declare blessings upon those who remember the examples and sacrifices that were made for us, so that; by the compassion of the Holy Ghost we will not forget the blessings that brought this far and the anointing that will lead us on. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen. http://tonyevans.org/praying-and-pronouncing-the-names-of-god/
