This word is something many of us could use more of but right now we had better be thankful that God has an immense amount of it. Why? Because of all the fighting and fussing over the “right” to kill babies that He has sent to us as blessings! I know, some people look at children, babies in particular, as an inconvenience but God has His reasons for sending that soul to you to be in your care. He doesn’t have to ask if it’s okay with you. If you are putting yourself in the position to have a child then God will oblige by sending you one. Whether you are ready for it or not!

Many new parents find that the job of being a parent is overwhelming at times and just plain exhausting during the first few months but most of us can get through it. Sometimes it takes a lot of prayer and “on-the-job” training but for those of us who truly want to be parents, it is worth it. Speaking of being worthy, none of us has the market on being worthy to be parents. Life happens and sometimes it is messy but with help from God and a little time, you can learn to be a good parent depending on your living arrangements.

Why am I focusing on this issue? Because that is one of the “big” stories on the news today. There are many other newsworthy things happening in the world but it seems that having the “right” to kill your child in the womb is more important right now. I worked as an EMT for a number of years and I carried a few expectant mothers to the hospital to have their babies. I never heard even one say that they didn’t want this child regardless of their age. As I said earlier, God sends these souls to Earth to fulfill some need or a specific calling that He has in mind for this child.

God knows what He is doing, whether we agree with His idea or not, is not supposed to be part of the equation. A child is supposed to be celebrated for their potential…their future. He or she is not supposed to be judged as useful or a nuisance. If your life doesn’t have room for a child, then give them a chance at life with someone who can’t have a child. Seek a way to give life a chance because this child may be the doctor that finds the cure for cancer one day.

Dedicate everything to the Lord!

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 KJV

It doesn’t matter how tired you are or how hopeless you feel, God can supply you with everything that you need to accomplish that task that needs to be done. So many people neglect to accept His supply and His help because they don’t want to do it His way. They want to do it their way. But you’ve tried it that way and it didn’t work, so give God’s solution a try. His way will work if you will place your faith in Him and keep going in the direction He gives you to go.

God knew you before you were born…

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Marvellous are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, When I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; And in thy book all my members were written, Which in continuance were fashioned, When as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! Psalm 139:14‭-‬17 KJV

God picked your parents and the place where you would be born and the place where you would live. Why would He do that? Because He knew that you would have an impact on those who live near you. Because you would be His one day and your witness would be needed in the area where you live. Why does God do this? Because He is in control and He determines the fate of mankind for His purposes and His glory. He raised up the Pharaoh that Moses would ask to let Israel go, He raised up Nebuchadnezzar to punish Israel because of their disobedience.

Since God uses the rulers and Presidents of the world to perform His will around the world, He can determine your path and your work in this world for Him. God can use you to perform His will when you don’t accept Jesus as your Savior. All of life and everything in creation is ordained by God to work the way He has determined for it to do…including everything that we do. The time of the church and the Gentiles is coming to an end soon, make sure that your belief is anchored in Jesus Christ, the Savior.

We belong to Him…

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35‭-‬39 KJV
