THE GOD DIMENSION-PART 1
Excerpts from my teaching at the Imo State First Lady’s outreach for pregnant women…
The God dimension has been the missing link in Antenatal details and requirements that prepare women for childbirth and motherhood. But it’s important to know that God is the author and fnisher of pregnancy. He made the male and female, he made marriage, and he packaged them for procreation…Genesis 1:26-28
1: PREGNANCY IS A BLESSING
Pregnancy is not a curse, it’s a blessing, and the blessing of the Lord makes rich and does not add any sorrow to it… Proverbs 10:22. Genesis 1:28 said, “And God blessed them… “
So don’t expect morning sickness, don’t expect complications, any problems or evil concerning your pregnancy – no matter what you feel in your body or medical or scan reports.
2: PREGNANCY IS NOT A SICKNESS
Pregnancy is not a sickness, it’s not a disease. So don’t use it as an excuse for laziness or to neglect your husband and your home.
Never use pregnancy as an excuse to deny your husband of sex. Both of you can still enjoy sex while you’re pregnant – even till the day of your delivery. Yes!
* Don’t use Pregnancy as an excuse to look haggard, untidy and unattractive. Yes! It’s all a matter of mindset.
3: THE END OF EVERY PREGNANCY IS A BRINGING FORTH.
All through scriptures, we see that every pregnancy culminated in the birth of a healthy child. No complications, no CS, no still-birth, no maternal mortality! That is the plan of God for every pregnant woman.
Eg: “Adam had sexual intercourse with his wife (not his gilfriend) Eve. She conceived and brought forth a son (Genesis 4:1)
*Even at the age of 90, Sarah got pregnant and gave birth without any anxieties or complications, because God was involved – Genesis 21:1-6.
*Also read about Elizabeth and Mary in Luke 1 & 2. Mary even gave birth in a manger, without any medical assistance.
* What I’m I saying? Don’t expect miscarriage in pregnancy, don’t expect to lose your life or your baby – God has not changed!
* In Exodus 25-26,God promises that those who serve him will never suffer miscarriage or die young.
That’s why it’s important to know the will of God, so that you’re not deceived by scan and scary medical reports! You can only reject and disarm evil reports if you know and are absolutely convinced about God’s report – Revelation 12:11.
God’s thoughts and plans for you are always good, never evil – Jeremiah 29:11-12; Job 34:10; 1John 4:4.
4:MIND YOUR LANGUAGE!
What you believe and say concerning yourself, your pregnancy and the baby in your womb is very important. No matter what you feel, hear or see, watch what you say. What you say either empowers God or the devil to act in your life.
Matthew 12:33-37 say that if you allow your heart to be corrupted by negative thoughts, news, etc, you will speak words that will polute and bring so much evil into your life.
Speak your desires, speak God’s promises over your body, your womb, your baby… (Proverbs 18:21; Psalm 34:11-12).
5: SUPERNATURAL CHILD BIRTH
This is when God gets involved in your childbirth; lending his power to the natural process of childbirth without any complications or prolonged labour. Exodus 1:19 testifies that the Hebrew women (children of God) were not like the Egyptians (the Godless, unbelievers). Before the midwives arrive, they have already given birth.
Don’t you like that? That’s supernatural childbirth! And it’s the will of God for you.
*Don’t expect labour in childbirth, expect the delivery of your baby (Isaiah 66:7). Don’t focus on the pain, focus on the bringing forth of your child.
*Pray in tongues through the contractions downloading supernatural grace into your mind and body; engaging the help and power of the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6; Micah 3:8)
