Whenever we are preparing to give birth to something; a child, a dream, a vision or a ministry; we must go through a process. No child is ever conceived one day, and then born the next day. There are several stages of development that must take place during the process before you can ever actually see the child or the promise. During the process, you must endure waiting while things are being properly prepared and put into place. Then the process of the water breaking takes place, in which you may have to shed some tears and be broken so that you are put in a place of humility to know how to receive and appreciate. Then the process of dilation takes place, in which doors begin to open connecting you to the right things, people, and places. Then the pain begins, which may be great and intense causing you to push past obstacles so that you can give birth, and bring forth your promise. Once you visually see your promise, you will realize and understand how necessary it was to go through the process.
Isaiah 66:7, 9 says “A woman does not give birth before she feels the pain; she does not give birth to a son before the pain starts. In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord. “If I cause you the pain, I will not stop you from giving birth to your new nation,” says your God.”
Be blessed, be encouraged, and have a great day.
