One of the primary challenges in life is the quest to find meaning, purpose and significance. The million-dollar question seems to be, “What was I put on earth to do?” We all sense something beyond the mundane routines of life. As believers, we are called to love Jesus and share His love to a lost and dying world. Those are the big pieces of the puzzle, but there is more.
“What is God’s master plan for me?” “What am I specifically called to do?” “Whom am I called to do it with?” “Why do things seem to be delayed?” We have all asked these questions atone time or another. It takes a moment to reflect, tune in, and listen to the Father for direction and answers to calm our wandering hearts and minds.
In reality, each of us was made for a beautiful and unique purpose. The Creator of heaven and earth crafted each one of us with our distinct quirks. abilities and talents for His majestic plan. This is the truth concerning our role in God’s master plan.
“For your ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all your paths” (Prov. 5:21, NIV).
“Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture” (Ps. 100:3).
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being” (Rev. 4:11).
In my book, The Jochebed Anointing, we examine the fascinating life of Jochebed. She was the mother of Moses, one of the Bible’s most famous people. In the study of her life are fascinating nuggets of wisdom and the unveiling of mysteries. We will find answers to many of life’s questions. We will discover hope and solutions where the enemy has only created and magnified problems.
We will also tap into an unusual anointing and ability. I call it the Jochebed anointing, an anointing to birth the glory and bring deliverance. I call the anointing “God’s super on our natural.” It is His power to fulfill a purpose. This is a vital and powerful anointing. Bondage needs to be broken, assignments need to be fulfilled and dreams must be realized.
Jochebed was called by God to fulfill an extraordinary purpose: not only the birthing of Moses but also the sacrifice of giving Him fully to the Father. Jochebed’s womb held the answer to the dilemma of an entire nation. There is a Jochebed anointing for you and me to birth something much greater than we know, to be part of a bigger story, to endure the wilderness, remain hidden and then come forth in the glory. Whether you operate with prophetic gifts or not, you need to understand the Jochebed anointing.
Jochebed would birth a friend of God! We are being called in this hour to do exploits through relationship. God stood before Moses and declared that He knew him and was pleased with him. The reward of surrender is glory and intimacy! God invites you to dream with Him, to build with Him and to adventure with Him. The Jochebed anointing births friendship and a glory-filled generation.
It is time to unveil the mysteries and birth what God has exalted you to birth. Get ready for a journey deeper unto the heart and mysteries of God as we unveil the Jochebed anointing.
And the Lord said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name” (Ex. 33:17).
