God Has a Plan For Your Children

In a world that is growing more chaotic and wicked, it is becoming more burdensome for parents, especially mothers, who worry about their children’s future. And in honor of this upcoming holiday, I want to especially encourage all of you mothers to have faith. God is in control, and He has a plan for your children.  

I want to share with you about a woman in the Bible, a mother named Jochebed, who overcame the most impossible circumstances to raise one of the most powerful men in the Bible. In Exodus 2, the children of Israel were suffering under the cruel enslavement of the Egyptians. The wicked Pharaoh had even commanded to throw all the Hebrew baby boys into the Nile River. During this time, an Israelite woman named Jochebed gave birth to a son, Moses. “And when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months” (Exodus 2:2 KJV).


Praise God for a mom who refused to allow the enemy to destroy her child. No doubt, Jochebed heard the prophecy God gave to her great ancestor, Abraham. God had told Abraham his descendants would be abused as slaves in a foreign land for 400 years. But at the end of that time, God would judge Israel’s oppressors and bring them out with “great substance” (Genesis 15:13-14).

Jochebed realized that their 400 years of oppression were almost over, and this woman of faith was determined to stand on the promise God had given to Abraham. She dared to look the enemy in the eye and say, “Not my child, devil. God made a promise to my family, and I don’t care what laws the Pharaoh is passing; I’m not going to give up on my child until I see God’s word come to pass.”

Has God made you a promise? Do you have a Scripture the Holy Spirit gave to you? Has your pastor proclaimed the Word of God over your life? I dare you to stand on that word until you see it fulfilled. It does not matter how much the enemy tries to increase his attacks on your life. When God gives you a word, He will see to it that it happens just as He said.

The Bible says, “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19).


Jochebed saw that Moses was a good child, and she hid him for three months (Exodus 2:2). The word “saw” in this verse means discernment. If you want to succeed in raising your child in a way that is pleasing to the Lord despite the evil and chaos in this world, you will need discernment.

Whether your discernment is a gift or acquired, the safest way to cultivate that gift or obtain discernment is to study the Word of God. The Bible says, “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).

The more you study the Word of God, the sharper your discernment will be. Jochebed must have had strong discernment because when she saw Moses, she did not see an ordinary baby. Of course, he was special to her since he was hers, but there was something different about him. Jochebed also discerned the time. Their 400 years of slavery were almost over. Perhaps God would use her son to deliver their people.


“And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob” (Exodus 2:23:24). The entire nation of Israel began to cry out to God, and God heard their prayers.

Prayer changes things. Is your back against the wall? Get on your knees and cry out to God. The Bible says ask and you shall receive (Matthew 7:7). God said, “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).


Not only was Jochebed a woman of prayer, but she was also a woman of faith. The Bible says in Hebrews 11, “By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment” (verse 23). Fear is the opposite of faith. Moses’s parents were not afraid because they took God at His word.

And when Jochebed realized that she could no longer hide Moses, she made a small ark, waterproofed it, laid her baby in it, and put the ark in the Nile River. Where did she get this crazy idea? It made no sense. Remember, Jochebed was a woman of prayer and faith. And her faith was in the Word of God.

She must have remembered the story where Noah built an ark. “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house” (Hebrews 11:7). Noah’s family was spared when the whole world was destroyed by the flood because Noah had a relationship with God. And Jochebed was led by the Holy Spirit to do the same for her child. She made an ark for Moses and trusted God with his life, and God honored her faith.

Pharaoh’s daughter found the ark. When she opened it, she saw the baby crying, and she had compassion for him. She realized the baby was an Israelite, but she claimed him as her own and raised him in the palace. She even paid Moses’s mother to nurse him for her. What a miracle!

Later, when Moses was grown, God used him to deliver the children of Israel from slavery and lead them as a free people towards the promised land. And all because of one mother who dared to trust in God! I want to encourage every mom reading this newsletter: God has a plan for your children, so stand on His promises. Be a woman of discernment, pray, and have faith.


As we near the launch service of Miracle Healing Center, we have a need that I wanted to bring before you again. If you follow us on social media, you have already seen it. There is equipment that we need to purchase to be able to hold services with excellence, allowing people of all ages to clearly receive the Word that goes forth.

As you can imagine, like everything else today, equipment costs have risen dramatically. We are doing our very best to seek out sales and to steward finances wisely, but we need every one of our partners and friends to do what they can in this hour to help us meet the need. Will you help?

I am not asking for a specific amount – just the amount that God places on your heart as you pray about helping us. Equipment is like tires: not much fun to purchase, but the journey is greatly challenged without them! Help us build a vehicle that allows every man, woman and child within the sound of my voice at Miracle Healing Center to clearly receive the word that God gives me. Help us get the equipment we need before launch.
