Summary: This is a message to the hopeless,the outcast,the ’feeling inferior’,the barren,those who thinks life is meaningless because of situations.
“Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband," says the LORD. "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.” Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. 5 For your Maker is your husband—the LORD Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth.” Isaiah 54:1-5
This is a special message to someone.
With God all things are possible.You may be fruitless for the past years but rejoice. You may have failed so many times. You may have been seriously discouraged and lost hope. You may be truly barren. You may be regarded as an outcast, useless and good for nothing person. Burst into songs, rejoice right now. You will spread out. You will remember no more your reproach. You will spread out to the right and left. You will definitely spread out!
Barrenness is a condition of unfruitfulness. The condition of inability to produce or bear regardless of how much desire or effort is put. Barrenness though is not a permanent feature. It can be broken. You may be experiencing serious trouble in achieving, bearing good results, getting married, being happy always, having children or being fruitful in any area of your life. Sing for joy. Start to rejoice. All that can be history right now. Burst into shouts of joy. You will make it. You will do it. You will bear fruits. You will spread out. Your results will surpass those who made it easily; you will be in great joy.
Greater are your children. Greater is your wedding. Greater is your healing. Greater is your success. Greater is your achievement. Do you know that it’s no news if the newly weds bear a child, But its great news if a barren woman after sixty years of barrenness bear a child. Don’t be afraid, you will not be ashamed, you will not be humiliated, and you will not be disgraced. You will spread out to the left and to the right. You will stretch your own curtains because you will be having your own house. You will share the same tables with princes and princess. You will spread out my friend. Don’t look at what you are, see the change. See your spreading out!
Barren women are usually cast outs. Also people who do not achieve or poor, unschooled, people of disadvantaged backgrounds are perceived as outcast by the majority. It’s very WRONG, it’s very BAD. Anyway it doesn’t matter if you are an outcast and you have become desolate. You will make it. You will spread out. Your Maker the Lord Almighty will definitely see that it’s done. He is your Redeemer. Don’t be afraid, burst into songs of joy. Sing praises to Him. Ignore what people call you. Ignore what people regard you as. You will spread out. Do not hold back. Don not doubts this. You will make it. Trust God, Love Him, Obey Him, He will not leave you like that. You shall have children of the womb, mind, hands, heart ,prayers and desires. You whose life was now a laughing stock be glad. You whose life was now a menace, you whose hopes had died, you whose dreams had darkened, you whose eyes had swollen with tears, rejoice, burst into songs of praise and thanks giving. Your Maker the Lord God of Heaven has remembered you. He is the God of all flesh; He holds plans to prosper you. To give you an expected end. He is not a respecter of persons or offices.
Do not hold back, do not feel useless and wasted. You are not finished yet. Fine you may have tried everything. You may have done all. But remember it’s not by mighty nor by power but by the spirit of God. O barren women sing into songs. Shout for joy, you who never know achievement .Many and glorious are the results of you. The Lord your Maker is your Redeemer. You will definitely spread out, you will spread out mightily!
God bless you!
