Faith in a Fallen World

All around you is evidence that evil is in this fallen world. But take heart! You can make a difference….like the mother Jochebed did. She lived in an evil world that was growing darker every day. When her third baby was born, the Egyptian Pharaoh put forth his evil hand of oppression. He ordered that every boy born to the Jews be murdered (Exodus 1:16, 22). What could Jochebed—a godly woman and devoted mother—do against such evil? She could take action in faith!

  • CourageJochebed decided to keep Moses, her baby, rather than kill him, thereby preserving him to bless the world.
  • CreativityJochebed made a basket from bulrushes and put her baby in it. He floated in the Nile River close to where Pharaoh’s daughter came regularly.
  • CareDuring the brief time she had Moses, Jochebed lovingly nursed and diligently trained him in the ways of the Lord.
  • ConfidenceAfter giving her son loving care and spiritual instruction, Jochebed returned her son to Pharaoh’s household. She trusted God would care for her boy.

Like Jochebed, don’t fret because of evildoers. Instead, take up the challenge. Devote yourself to raising children who have faith and who love God. And take heart! The prince of darkness is helpless against the power of the truth you plant in your children’s hearts and minds.
