"And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For nothing will be impossible with God."
Sometime in 2003, I witnessed the miraculous power of God in the life of a beloved sister. This sister was a registered nurse and had just turned 40 at the time. She wasn't a member of our church but she was referred to my pastor for prayers and her story was that she had been married for about 10 years or more and was unable to conceive and like most women who are over 35, the fear of not being able to have children grips you and that fear can cause you many sleepless nights, robbing you of your peace. She and her husband had done everything within their human strength to conceive, but nothing was working and they had gone from church to church for prayers, spent much money on treatments ..No change! When she was now introduced to my Pastor, he assured that God is in control but he wants her to do a couple of things..." Everything I tell you to do, please do it in obedience" and she agreed. What did he instruct her to do? To fast and pray on certain prayer points for a specified period of time and also to limit her conversations with people as it relates to her getting pregnant. ( in other words, spend more time in the presence of God and less time, talking on the phone, lamenting about her situation etc.). He also told her that when God finally does it, she should tell no one that she is pregnant ( ofcourse except for those who she comes in contact with, since she will not be able to hide the pregnancy after a while) until after she gave birth. About 9-10 months later, we got the wonderful news that this Sister had just given birth to not just one baby boy, but to two, a set of twins.
What a miracle and a display of God's power in the lives of those who trust in Him. Our God is truly more than able, for He specializes in the impossible. Beloved, my encouraging words for you this season is to believe in the Lord, your God for your breakthrough, t here is nothing on this earth and in heaven above, impossible with the Almighty God. He is the giver of life and of all good things and that includes the fruit of the womb, which is His reward Psalm 127:3. This sister was hoping for one child, but at the age of 40, the Lord blessed her with two at a time.. (double blessing). Look at Elizabeth, she was probably much older than this sister and many around her had already concluded she was barren, but God had the final say over her situation and in her old age, she gave back to a great man of God, John the Baptist, who became the forerunner of our Lord Jesus Christ. So please do not accept any negative label from people, but continue to fix your eyes on Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of your faith. This season of Christmas, I decree that anything that is dead in your life, become resurrected, any womb that has been shut by the enemy and any woman labeled barren by others, I declare by the power in the name of Jesus Christ and by the blood of the lamb, that the womb receive life now and every woman still trusting the Lord for your miracle, claim yourself as a fruitful vessel to carry your own child this season in Jesus name. Your Testimony is around the corner !!!!!
Merry Christmas to you my dear friends and fellow daughters of zion. May the Lord strengthen and guide you this day as you seek His will for your lives. Shalom.
