God bless you,
Today I want to take the comparison of the pain that a mother has to suffer before giving birth and likened it with the pain we have to suffer before giving birth to our purpose or to make our purpose come into his full fulfilment.
Bible says that God said to Jeremiah that before I formed they I knew ye. God knows you before you were born. God has planted the seed of purpose before you were born. God needs your life to fulfil the purpose He has planted in you.
Now a mother suffers a lot of pain; yes that is thru (Genesis 3:16), but for the baby it is painful as well. The baby has to go into position to be born, there has to be someone doctor or midwife that helps the mother through to process. The baby has to come out with his head and than they have to pull him a little at his head to help to process. Finally when he is out, they have to check and run test before he can lay warm on the mothers chest. The baby goes from one world to another. That is scary..
Sometimes we have to suffer pain; we have to go through painful stuff before we can realise that it is all to set and catapults us in our purpose. For me I can say I suffered a lot not sure actually if I won’t suffer anymore but I know that my pain will serve my purpose to bless another in order for God to be glorified.
Ezekiel 16:3-7 NIV
3 and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says to Jerusalem: Your ancestry and birth were in the land of the Canaanites; your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite. 4 On the day you were bornyour cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water to make you clean, nor were you rubbed with salt or wrapped in cloths. 5 No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough to do any of these things for you. Rather, you were thrown out into the open field, for on the day you were born you were despised.
6 “‘Then I passed by and saw you kicking about in your blood, and as you lay there in your blood I said to you, “Live!”[a] 7 I made you grow like a plant of the field. You grew and developed and entered puberty. Your breasts had formed and your hair had grown, yet you were stark naked.
This morning God has seen you laying there in your own struggles and He says to you Live…Live (verse 6) God sees the potential in you.
Hope this is something to help you not to focus on the pain because bible says also in
John 16:21New International Version (NIV)
21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.
With loving regards,
