VIDEO Mothers Know Best: Jochebed

But when she could no longer hide him, she took an ark of bulrushes for him, daubed it with asphalt and pitch, put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river’s bank. Exodus 2:3

Mothering isn’t for cowards, nor is being a parent, grandparent, guardian, uncle, aunt, mentor, teacher, or coach. The world is lined up against our children. Satan is pulling out all the stops to mess up their lives, confuse their morals, endanger their spirituality, hurt their hearts, and damn their souls. 

But wait! Before you grow discouraged, remember this. Satan has always attacked children. In the days of the Israelites, Pharaoh commanded all the baby boys among them to be killed—to be thrown into the Nile for the crocodiles. But Jochebed (we know her name from Exodus 6:20) had the courage of the Lord. She put her child in the Nile all right, but she did it courageously and creatively. God gave her insight that thwarted the government and saved her son.

Don’t allow the culture to push you into its mold. Trust the Lord to give you the courage and creativity to raise a new generation for Christ!

Jochebed…. lived her life as unto Him, and her sons and daughter lit their torches at her flame. Herbert Lockyer
