TOPIC: Lessons From The Life Of Jochebed (IV) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 14 May 2024)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 33, 2 Chronicles 34, 2 Chronicles 35, Luke 13, Luke 14.

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 2:1-10 (KJV)

1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.

3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.

4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.

7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?

8 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child’s mother.

9 And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.

10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

MEMORY VERSE: “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” – Proverbs 25:28 (KJV)

If you can control yourself, you can master and control anything.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Jochebed had self-control and was highly disciplined. Can you imagine the level of self- control Jochebed demonstrated when she stood in front of Pharaoh’s daughter and accepted the care and wages for her very son whom Pharaoh wanted to destroy? I don’t know if I could have done it. The glee on my face would have told Pharaoh’s daughter I was the child’s mother. I would have been so giddy maybe Pharaoh’s daughter would have thought I was crazy and asked Miriam to find her another woman to take care of Moses. It takes a certain presence of mind to exhibit grace under pressure and Jochebed had it. She raised her son as another woman’s child and then, at the appointed time, she handed him over to Pharoah’s daughter. That took a whole lot of self-control and discipline. Her self-control preserved her life because if she had not controlled herself in the presence of the king’s daughter, she would risk being killed alongside her family and especially the baby she was trying to protect.

You never can master anything, if you have not mastered yourself. Self-control is key not just for getting to the top but for remaining at the top. A lot of people have lost their lives untimely due to lack of self-control. Before you can lead others, you have to lead yourself first. We need to pray this virtue and fruit of the Spirit into our lives. We need it. Most of the chaos in some homes and even the world is born out of lack of self-control.

When Jochebed faced her greatest fear, she didn’t panic. She made a plan and boldly executed it and God backed her up. She knew that as long as she trusted Jehovah, she had nothing to fear. Likewise, we have nothing to fear when we learn to rely on God. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us – including overcoming our greatest fears. “For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not (Isaiah 30:15).



  1. My Father, break me down and remould me, in the name of Jesus
  2. Power to control myself, come upon me, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father work on my character till Your life is formed in me, in the name of Jesus.


  1. O God my Father, give me the second touch of Your power, in the name of Jesus.
  2. In the time of my visitation, I shall not fail, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I shall not miss my timing, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Father, increase my faith in You, in the name of Jesus.
