“The Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them” (Ex 1:7)
As I said yesterday, a number of Christian women asked me to pray for them, that they marry and have children. Some are young and some are not so young. I feel compassion for them because I am a mother and a grandmother. For their sake I decided to study again the scriptures that promise natural and spiritual fruitfulness. I recommend that you fast and pray. Meditate upon the revelation of the Word of God. It is the will of God for you to marry and have children. But the devil hates that. I join my faith with yours. I believe that God will answer your prayers! I believe that your dream will come true! In Christ, the victory and the testimony is sure!
In Genesis 1:28 God blesses the first couple on earth and He commands them to be fruitful and increase in number. Satan deceived them to rebel against God. But even after the fall of man, God’s command of fruitfulness was obeyed. Men increased in number on the earth. In the Book of Exodus 1, we see that this blessed commanded fruitfulness belongs especially to the people of God. They multiplied so much that Pharaoh and the Egyptians became afraid of them and made plans to reduce their number. Their evil plan was three fold.
*The first thing they did was to increase the burden of labor upon God’s people.
“So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor… But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites and worked them ruthlessly. They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly” (Ex 1:11-14)
*The second thing the Egyptians did was to intimidate and bribe the midwives to be negligent in their work so that the male new born babies will die. The midwives wisely refused to obey the wicked decree. Because of that, Jehovah, the God of Israel, blessed them with families of their own.
*Finally, when Pharaoh discovered that both these methods failed to reduce the numbers of God’s people, he gave a decree that all new born baby boys should be thrown into River Nile. In Exodus 2 we see how Jochebed, the mother of Moses, by faith, she saves her son’s life thru the same river of death. Moses grew up in Pharaoh’s palace but later, he becomes the deliverer of Israel and leads them out of the land of bondage. This is a wonderful story!
Spiritually speaking, Egypt stands for the world. The Pharaoh ‘who did not know Joseph’ represents the devil who is the god of this world. The plan of the devil is to stop the natural and spiritual fruitfulness of God’s children. In other words, the devil does not want you to have children. The devil will attack with bareness and confusion. “Do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even expose them” (Eph 5:11). Pray for discernment when you make friends and pray for God’s light! Darkness is a symbol of evil. The children of darkness are unfruitful and they want you to be unfruitful too, so that you can be ‘friends’. God forbid! You are to discern their wickedness and confront them with the Word of God. Dwell in the light of God! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
Now this is a very important question: how do you know that you are getting closer to your exodus, to your breakthrough? What are the signs that you will soon marry. Be pregnant and have children? According to the Book of Exodus 1 things will become rougher become they become better!!! The first thing you will experience is that your work in your office is more difficult. Your business will be under attack. Also, the medical staff will not be able to help you. They may proclaim that you are barren and that there is no solution for your infertility. As you try to come to the light, at the end of the tunnel, you will be attacked by evil powers of darkness, by demons of fear, doubt, depression and total discouragement. These attacks are unpleasant but they are not the end of your story! I am saying this because I know that God will fight on your behalf and rescue you from all these troubles. Light always kills the darkness! If the devil likes it or not, you shall marry and have children!!! In Jesus name!
Children of God be encouraged today! As Pharaoh could not stop God’s blessings upon Israel the devil cannot stop God’s blessings on you! Dear sisters, by faith in God and in His Word, I decree that you shall marry, be happy and have as many children as you desire (surely more than one!). Your life, your marriage, your womb, your future, your finances, your destiny is not with the devil but in God’s hands. The hands of Jesus pierced by the nails of judgment are the very hands holding you close and lovingly blessing you even right now! Your marriage is decreed and approved by God! You shall be a happy mother of children! Have faith in God! Your children shall be many and brilliant like the stars in the sky! Now I am saying this: by faith in God, buy your wedding shoes and some baby shoes (send me some pictures in my inbox, please…). You shall use them soon! I am very happy as I write these words, because I believe that they are true! To God be all the glory! In Jesus name, amen!
