Don’t Abort the Seed
How many have had a Word spoken over them… or had God to speak a promise into your life, that you have not yet received? Do you realize that you are spiritually pregnant with God’s seed? Have you grown weary during the developmental process of the promise or vision that you have been carrying on the inside? If so, I have some good news for you today.
I believe that many of God’s people are pregnant with God’s promises. And I believe the birthing of these promises are close at hand. Don’t allow the enemy to come in and abort the baby.
Jeremiah 1:4-6 – Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Then said I: “Ah Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” But the Lord said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.”
I believe it’s time for the body of Christ to quit talking in a negative way. Our negativity has the capability to abort the spiritual promises that are being developed in our womb. We must stop speaking negative words over our promised seed. We must align ourselves with God’s will in order to birth what He has placed on the inside of us. If we fail to do this, we will suffer the consequences of our disobedience.
Jeremiah told the Lord, “I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” The Lord replied, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth.’” In other words, the Lord was basically saying, “Don’t be talking like this Jeremiah. Your words are negative and they are not lining up with My will for your life. Do not say, ‘I cannot,’ when I have said, you can.” It doesn’t matter how old or how young a person is when God begins to speak His word into them.
The words, ‘I cannot,’ should not be included in our vocabulary. When the Lord tells us to do something, it means that He has already equipped us to accomplish the command. When we respond to His command with, “I cannot,” we are positioning ourselves for a spiritual abortion. God’s promises are so much bigger than our finite minds can comprehend.
This is why Scripture declares, “The just shall live by faith.” The just shall not live by what they see in the natural realm. The just shall not live by doubt and unbelief. The just shall live by faith. Faith supersedes the natural. Faith speaks to those things that are not as though they were. Faith says, “Yes and amen,” when God speaks. Faith causes God’s seed on the inside of us to grow to maturity. Faith walks us through the birthing process and delivers the promises of God.
Listen to me tonight… It’s going to take faith to birth the spiritual baby that’s inside your womb. God has put His seed of promise in you for His divine purpose. Many of you are going to have to repent of doubt and unbelief and ask the Lord to increase your faith so that you can be used as a birthing channel for Him. God is looking for people who have the faith necessary to birth His plans and purposes in the earth. Without faith, we will accomplish absolutely nothing. We must learn how to lay hold of the supernatural, by faith, and align ourselves with the will of God.
