A Mother's Resolve with Danielle Zapchenk #145

Do you find your self connecting with certain characters from the Bible? Today I would love to share one of  my most recent messages about Moses Mom Jochebed from our home church.  I  pray that you can see how God was such a good rescuer and I am thrilled to share it with you. Please enjoy this message wherever it may find you today.

Sermon Notes

  • Please help, I am stuck in here. Call my boss.

  • God rescues His people

  • and when she saw that her son was healthy and beautiful, she feared for his safety; so she kept him hidden from view for three whole months. Exodus 2:2

  • When she could no longer keep him hidden away, she took a basket made of reeds, sealed it with tar and pitch, and placed her baby boy in it. Then she wedged the basket among the reeds along the edge of the Nile River. Exodus 2:3

  • “Here! Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will pay you for your services. So the woman took the child—who was secretly her own son—and nursed him just as Pharaoh’s daughter had instructed. 10 The boy grew, and when the time was right, the woman brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and she adopted him as her own. She named him Moses because, as she explained, “I took him out of the water.” Exodus 2:9-10

  • Preparation allows us to witness God’s Providence she took a basket made of reeds, sealed it with tar and pitch, and placed her baby boy in it. Exodus 2:3

  • Parenting is always an exercise in hope, a gift given to a future we cannot see to the end. At some point, if God is merciful, our children will continue forward without us, left with the shared memory of love shared and received - Esau McCaulley

  • No matter the decision, He is with us.

  • I am sending you like lambs into a pack of wolves. So be as wise as snakes and as innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16

  • Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:8

  • God Sustains our faith when we don’t have enough.
