Genesis 1-3
The book opens with the story of the jealousy/fear of the Egyptians and Pharoah allowing baby boys to be slaughtered. But as we know, there is no plan that man can concoct that can keep God's will from being accomplished. The midwives feared God and would not allow the baby boys to be killed. A miraculous escape plan was hatched to protect the infant son of two members of the tribe of Levi. She hid her baby boy for as long as she could. The Scriptures tell the rest of the story better than I could.

And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.
And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.
Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.
And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.
10 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.
Only God could direct these extraordinary events to happen.
