Birthing everything you bring forth, comes through sorrow. If you are going to bring forth anything in your career, life, business or your marriage, if you are going to develop anything in your character, if you are going to be a fruitful woman, it will come through the things you suffer. You will enter into strength through sorrow.
Sorrow is not the object, it’s simply the canal through which the object comes. For every sorrow, for every intense groaning in your spirit, you ought to have something to show for it. “DON’T LET THE DEVIL GIVE YOU SORROW WITHOUT A SEED”.
Anytime you have sorrow, it is a sign that God is trying to get something through you and to you.
You are the entrance of all things. You are the door of life. You are a vehicle, an expression of blessing. If there is to be any virtue, any praise, any victory, any deliverance, it has to come through you.
Satan wants to use you as a legal entry into this world or into your family. That’s how he attempted to destroy human race with the first family. Be careful what you allow to enter through you (Single ladies be careful with premarital sex). Close the doors to the enemy. Then know that when travail comes into your spirit, it’s because you are about to give birth. When you see sorrow (disappointment, failure, heartache, miscarriages, barrenness, stagnation, delays etc) multiply, it’s a sign that God is getting ready to send something to you.
Don’t become preoccupied with the pain that you forget to push the baby. When the pain is at its peak, that’s when you have to push. PUSH!
You don’t have time to cry. PUSH!
You don’t have time to be suicidal. PUSH!
This is not the time to give up. PUSH!
Just PUSH because God is about to birth a promise (something new, something bigger) through you.
Cry if you must, and groan if you have to but keep on PUSHING. God has promised that if it is to come into the world , it has to pass through you.
Don’t settle for the pain and not receive the benefit. Disregard the pain and hold out the promise. Understand that God has promised some things to you that He wants you to have, and you have got to stay. Don’t become engrossed with what is hurting you that you are not doing what it takes to produce fruit in your life.
If you are in a financial rut, bring forth.
If you are in need of healing for your body, bring forth.
If you are seeking deliverance from a besetting sin, bring forth.
If you believing God for a miracle (babies or husband or promotion), bring forth.
Understand that you must bring forth.
It doesn’t just happen by accident.
That’s why you have suffered pain.
AFTER ALL,THE PAIN IS FORGOTTEN WHEN THE BABY IS BORN! WHEN YOUR MIRACLE IS BIRTH! WHEN YOUR DESIRE IS ANSWERED! CONGRATULATION MY DEAR SISTERS FOR THIS SHALL BE A REALITY THIS MONTH.
HAPPY NEW MONTH MY DIVAS. REJOICE, I SAY REJOICE!
WIPE THOSE SECRET TEARS. YOU WILL SURELY LAUGH AT LAST!
