Topic: You are created to be Fruitful
Praise the Lord! His Word can never be broken. He declared you fruitful and you are indeed fruitful.
Now that you are pregnant, what next?
This may sound funny to you, may be this is not your first pregnancy, or you are already a grandma, or even still, you are not married yet. But I tell you, there is always something new in the Word of God, something new to learn, something new to add to knowledge and pass across to our younger ones.
This week, I will show you what to do when you are pregnant.
Pregnancy, as it were, might be seen by some people as traumatic and hectic. But I tell you, by the Word, it can be quite exciting and filled with ease. This shall be your own experience in Jesus’ name. Amen. If we are to raise Godly children, we must begin with their conception through delivery unto adulthood. After all the Bible says, that right from conception, He has known us (Psalm 139:13-16).
In the entire pages of the Bible, it was never recorded that any woman had a traumatic pregnancy period, due to some medical anomalies. The Bible is our perfect guide and blueprint for successful living. We must not, as covenant children, give excuses for the lies of the devil. If we follow the instructions contained in the Word of God, we shall not experience what the people of the world do experience. Here are what you are to do:
Maintain A life of Praise and Joy:
Make praise a lifestyle. As you wake up in the morning, whether you feel like it or not, praise God. Let everything within you radiate joy. As you make it a habit of letting joy surge from your inside, every part of your body system is revitalized. The Bible says: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine (Proverbs 17:22). It has been said that during pregnancy, moods swing. You are up now, but down in the next minute. You begin to frown at everyone around you. You are easily irritated. No, this shouldn’t be with a covenant child of God. The Bible says the Hebrew women were lively. For you to be lively on the delivery table, joy must have been part and parcel of you. It is already in your system. You can’t fake joy on the delivery table. Woman, just live out the Word of God. It is possible.
Consider this, the Bible says: For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy (Luke 1:44). If the mother was not joyful, how will she have known that the baby in her womb was leaping for joy at the instant of that greeting? Don’t let the time of pregnancy be a time of depression for you. Remain joyful, glorifying God for the wonderful experience of procreating with Him.
I tell you, women are the most privileged of God. It is just a unique experience that cannot be absolutely described. Joy is an important ingredient in the school of healthy living. It is better to stay healthy by remaining joyful, than spending money on drugs by being moody or sad.
Study and meditate on the Word of God:
The Word of God is the bedrock of all things in life. The Bible says, He upholds all things by the Word of His power (Hebrews 1:3b). All things include you and the baby in your womb. Read, study it and Meditate upon the Word. This is the time to drink the juice of the Word, for your health and the baby’s. The Word is the maker of all things. It has power to create. The Word of God says: In the beginning was the Word…. And nothing was made without the Word (John 1:1, 3 paraphrased). Fill your belly with the Word of God. Speak it to the baby in your womb. Sow the seed of God’s Word into his/her life.
Maintain a lifestyle of prayer:
Pray, pray and pray again. No one can pray for you like yourself. Talk to God intelligibly in prayer. Commune with Him on the basis of His Word, which you have received. Soak yourself and the baby in the Blood of Jesus. Destroy the hold of the enemy upon the developing child in the womb and also on yourself. Commit and dedicate the child to God, even while inside the womb.
Pray concerning the delivery day.
Cover yourself, the baby, the birth attendants, the clinic, the materials to be used, etc, with the Blood of Jesus Christ. Commit his life, school, career, marriage, life, etc, into God’s hands. Pregnancy is not a licence to now begin to go from house to house, talking and gossiping with neighbours and friends, just because you no longer go to your business place, in order for you to take time to rest. Invest your time in prayers, and secure your environment from any form of evil.
