YOU MUST BE FRUITFUL (3)
Last week we had a wonderful time in God’s presence, I pray today will be more glorious. Last week, we discussed about people facing physical unfruitfulness and what could be done to come out triumphantly. Today, we shall be looking at another wonderful subject: Pregnancy Made Easy
Praise the Lord! His Word can never be broken. God declared you fruitful and you are indeed fruitful. Now that you are pregnant, what next? This may sound funny to you, maybe because this is not your first pregnancy or you are already a grandmother, or probably, you are not married yet. I want you to know that there is always something new in the Word of God. Pregnancy, as it were, might be seen by some people as traumatic and hectic; but, by the Word, it can be quite exciting and filled with ease. This shall be your own experience in Jesus’ Name! Amen. If we are to groom children for greatness, we must begin with their conception, through delivery, and to adulthood. After all, the Bible in Psalms 139:13-16 says that right from conception, God knew us. In the entire Bible, it was never recorded that any woman had a traumatic pregnancy period due to some medical anomalies. The Bible is our perfect guide and blueprint for successful living. We must not, as covenant children, give excuses for the lies of the devil. If we follow the instructions contained in the Bible, we shall not experience what the people of the world experience. So, what are the blueprints for Pregnancy made Easy for God’s covenant children?
The Bible says: Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3). Make joy a lifestyle. As you wake up in the morning, whether you feel like it or not, praise God. Let every thing within you spell joy. As you form the habit of letting joy surge from within you, every part of your body system is revitalised. The Bible says: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine (Proverbs 17:22). It has been said that mood swings occur during pregnancy: you are up now, but down the next minute. You frown at everyone and you are easily irritated. This shouldn’t be with a covenant child of God. The Bible says the Hebrew women were lively. For you to be lively on the delivery table, joy must have been part and parcel of you.
Consider this− the Bible says in Luke 1:44: For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. If the mother was not joyful, how would she have known that the baby in her womb was leaping for joy at the instance of that greeting? Don’t let the time of pregnancy be a time of depression for you; remain joyful, glorifying God for the wonderful experience of procreating with Him. I tell you, women are most privileged of God; it is just a unique experience that cannot be absolutely described. Joy is an important ingredient in the school of healthy living. It is better to stay healthy by remaining joyful, than spending money on drugs by being moody or sad.
Be A Student Of The Word Of God
The Word of God is the bedrock of all things in life. The Bible says: He upholds all things by the Word of His power (Hebrews 1:3). “All things,” including you and the baby in your womb. Therefore, read the Word, study it and meditate on it. This is the time to drink in the juice of the Word, for your ‘health’ and that of the baby. The Word is the maker of all things: it has power to create. The Bible says: In the beginning was the Word…. And nothing was made without the Word (John 1:1, 3 paraphrased). Fill your belly with the Word of God; speak it to the baby in your womb and sow the seed of God’s Word into his/her life.
No one can pray for you like you. So, commune with God on the basis of His Word, which you have received. The Psalmist exclaimed: O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come (Psalms 65:2). Soak yourself and the baby, in the Blood of Jesus. Destroy the hold of the enemy upon the developing child in the womb and on yourself. Commit and dedicate the child to God, even while inside the womb. Pray concerning the delivery day. Cover yourself, the baby, the birth attendants, the clinic, the materials to be used, etc., with the Blood. Commit his/her life, school, career, marriage, life, etc., into God’s hands. Pregnancy is not a license to go from house to house, talking and gossiping with neighbours and friends, just because you no longer have a business or place of work to go, or you want to take time to rest. Invest your time in prayers, and secure your environment from any form of evil.
Keep Right Company
Show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are. Don’t keep company with negative talkers. People who only remember those that died during pregnancy or childbirth are dangerous. Those who only talk about babies born deformed are to be feared and run away from. Saturate and clean your environment of any negative talking. Negative talks don’t edify; so, flee from such companies. Foolish talks bring disasters. In fact, the Word of God says foolishness kills. Anywhere you see people talking negatively, draw away and fill your heart with positive reports.
As you combine all these with personal hygiene, taking a lot of rest, a balanced diet meal, (not just eating any junk that comes your way), and adhering to the advice from your medical personnel (I mean qualified medical personnel in the field of gynecology and obstetrics), you are set for the easiest time of pregnancy and delivery, as you bring forth a godly seed to the glory of God.
Are you born again? If your answer is no and you want to be born again and called a child of God, say this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today acknowledging that I am a sinner who needs Your forgiveness. I believe You died for me and rose again on the third day. Forgive me of my sins, wash me with Your Blood and write my name in the Lamb’s Book of life. Thank You Lord for saving me.”
If you prayed this simple prayer, you are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
