“My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.” Galatians 4:19
I’ll never forget a most precious experience in my life when I was pregnant at the same time with four of my close friends. Our due dates were within days and months of each other, and as we went through the pregnancy, we would call and check up on each other to see how the other person was doing. When our due dates came around, it was a blessing to see the multiple text messages that read, “I’m on my way to the hospital!” “Yes, me too!” We were all giving birth to a baby. However, when it was time to deliver, none of my friends were in the delivery room with me. They were busy giving birth themselves.
My covenant sister, it is time to give birth to your purpose and to that burning call of God that lies deep within you. People may be with you while you are carrying, but don’t be dismayed if no one is around at the time of your delivery. God is not being cruel. He does love you. And while you may think, “Lord, this is when I need someone the most!” God is saying, “You need Me. Put your eyes on Me. I am with you. I am holding your hand. I will guide you through the delivery and help you give birth to the purpose you have been carrying all this time.”
Prayer: Yes, Lord. Thank You, Jesus! I hear You! Thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I receive Your word. Thank You for those that have been with me in my carrying, but I mostly thank You for the delivery. Help me give birth to what You have put on the inside of me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
