Pregnant to deliver
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
The will of God for us is not only to be pregnant with his promises but also to strive in faith to be able to deliver victoriously
Mary, Elizabeth, Hannah, Sarah - There is a common thread that holds all these women together in the scripture, Impossible pregnancies. All of them coming from seemingly dead end situations, where their life paths were etched with expected destinations until God intervened. As the scripture tells us, they not only experienced the bittersweet joys of pregnancy but were also strong enough to give birth to their destiny children.
A victorious christian is not one who is just pregnant with the promises that the word has provided but also has moved in faith to come through the birth pains to deliver what God intended in their life.
From children to Sons
There is an expectation of fruitfulness that is set to mature sons, that is not required from children in any family. This expectation is also supported with the required authority bestowed on the sons by a benevolent father.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. - Romans 8:19
To fully experience all that the good Lord has for us, we have to rise up the ranks from being children to sons/daughters in the faith.
How do we move from immaturity to fruitfulness -
Understand your heavenly purpose and intentionally move towards fulfilling it.
Surrender your plans to the Lord, so that he will guide your ways
The power of life and death rests in your tongue. Use it to encourage yourself to move your mountains away
In all things, rest in the support of the Holy spirit
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. - Romans 8:14
As we make steps to deliver our purpose, we will be eventually faced with the struggles that accompany any great cause. But we need not be afraid, we have a God who specializes in impossibilities. He will surely see us through.
being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. - Philippians 1:6
