Question:  Pick out 5 women that have influenced the world the most to you.
Would you say
  • Oprah Winfrey?
  • Mother Teresa?
  • Jochebed?
  • Your own mother?
  • Michelle Obama?
After the Israelites were enslaved and kept in captivity.  The more Pharaoh kept them oppressed is the more they multiplied, so it was the ORDER OF THE PHARAOH to have every boy child born of the Israelites to be thrown into the river Nile.

EXODUS 2:1-10  This was the story of Moses.  The parents of Moses were newly married and the Mother of Moses soon became pregnant with him.  When she birthed a son, she hid him for THREE MONTHS after she couldn't hide him anymore, she waterproofed a basket and set her unnamed son into the basket, into the river Nile.  She instructed her daughter to keep a close watch on her brother as the basket went down the river.  A princess, (the daughter of Pharaoh)  found the basket and felt sorry for the little boy found in the basket.  At this time, the sister, who was watching all along, asked if she would like the Princess to 'find' a Hebrew woman to nurse the baby.  The sister, then went to find Jochebed the birth mother of this special child.  The Princess asked her to not only nurse her newly found son but offered to PAY Jochebed to nurse her own son!!! Do you see how the Lord works? He is an amazing and ontime God!

Now that you know who Jochebed is, has your answer changed? This woman has done so much for us!
  • She had faith in and reverence for the Lord.  She literally defied the King because she had so much faith and reverence. 
HEBREWS 11:23  They kept him alive because they saw that he was no ordinary child.
  • She feared God more than she feared the Pharaoh of Egypt.

PROVERBS 1:7

PROVERBS 9:10
PROVERBS 14:26
PROVERBS 16:6
PROVERBS 31:30
All of these scriptures have the same thing in common, they all point out FEAR of the Lord.

ROMANS 1:19-22
PSALM 14:1  The fool says in his heart there is no God.
  • She left an impartation and legacy.
Never underestimate your power to impart!
HEBREWS 11:23-29  Jochebed - carried on her faith into others for centuries after her.


NOW, there is NO river Nile for Christians of today but the Devil is tying to throw us into de-nial telling us things like we evolved from monkeys and the theory of science over creation.

PARENTS:
Do your children see you pray?
Do you encourage them to pray?
Do they see you live FOR God?
Are you building an arc of safety as Jochebed  did when she waterproofed the basket from the river Nile?  Or are you putting your children in place for the devil by keeping the Word of God away from them?

IF YOU ARE A MOTHER OF FATHER
AND WORRY ABOUT YOUR IMPARTATION OR LEGACY,
GIVE YOURSELF UNTO THE LORD!!!!!
AMEN!
