Summary: In this season we must be willing to help someone else’s vision come to pass.
Help Someone Else Give Birth
Genesis 35: 16-17
16 Then they journeyed from Bethel. And when there was but a little distance to go to Ephrath, Rachel labored in childbirth, and she had hard labor. 17 Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, “Do not fear; you will have this son also.”
As a midwife enters into the room of an expecting mother she has to prepare herself psychologically, spiritually and in the flesh so that she may carry on with her intended purpose of facilitating the appropriate procedures for that mother to have a successful delivery and a smooth transition from parenthood to motherhood as the two play significantly different roles. The midwife also has to share in the experience with the troubles of labor pains and thereafter has to assist that mother after she has giving birth to that to sowed seed. She has to set aside her own desires, wishes and dreams forgetting the fact that though she too may wish to one day give birth; unselfishly, she has to set aside her own feelings to assume the responsibility of proceeding on in the assistance of nurturing that seed as if it were her own without prejudice.
However; It keeps me amused to see on a regular basis how self-seeking the Christian populace can be when they desire the blessings of someone else; furthermore, it amuses how they will negate their responsibility to take part in helping with their vision (Blessing); though they applaud these people with heartrending veracity; the sad reality is that So many of us are impregnated with so many gifts and have yet so much to offer but yet we will not postpone our purpose to help someone else give birth.
It has been through my own experience whereby the seed in which I was pregnant with was birthed out because of my willingness to help someone else give birth to their seed, I was likened to the midwife helping in every aspect of the process to see that their seed was not aborted nor born prematurely. How many of us are willing to postpone our purpose to help someone else give birth. Have you ever considered the fact that it maybe your purpose to be an assistant, not every one of us are called to headship but rather called to leadership? Whatever our purpose is it is God’s will.
