The women who’s wombs were closed were the women who later carried and birthed the children who would pass on God’s mighty promise.
From Sarah to Rebekah to Rachel , all their wombs were closed before they were able to conceive, great men of God.
The fact that the door to God’s plans and purpose seems unopened yet doesn’t mean you should give up. The enemy will try and frustrate you through a situation that doesn’t seem to turned around , so you can give up. He will even use people to tell you its not going to work so give up. But the reason it looks so tough is because there’s something great coming out of it. So don’t give up now, hold on. Put your focus on God, pray and seek His face. Take your mind of the problem and put your mind on God. There’s something great coming out of it that’s why the road is so narrow.
So whatever it is that you are facing HOLD ON. He can do exceedingly abundantly more than you can ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or imagine.
When you focus so much on how things look now, you loose sight of what’s coming ahead. Expect a great future, even if things don’t seem bright now. Expect a good job even if you havn’t recieved the letter saying yes. Expect that God will bring the right person into your life.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I am conscious of my thoughts about you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you hope at the end.
God himself has confirmed that He will give you hope in the end. That no matter what is happening the end will be good. So why expect any other end? That no matter when its going to happen or how its going to happen you will smile at the end. Its not the fastest runner at the beginning of the race which matters, its who is the first to cross the finish line. And God is saying “I know your finish line”. I know your future, I will cross the finish line with you, and you will finish well”. So if you just hold on you will see yourself cross the finish line and rejoice.
And when you feel like giving up, or feel down , do the opposite of how you feel. Worship and praise God for what He is about to do. This life may seem like one battle after another, but Jesus said John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” When you haven’t heard a response yet doesn’t mean give up. When you knock a door and its not opened doesn’t mean give up. When you haven’t seen a turn around yet doesn’t mean give up. A door can be opened at anytime, but God chooses the right season to open that door.
Sometimes before something great is about to be birthed, there seems to be pain and discomfort and problems from nowhere. But that’s to distract you of the road you walking with God. That’s to distract you of the great thing that’s about to be birthed. The joy of what you will reap will be so much greater than the pain you’ve been through, if you will just hold on.
Take one day at a time and be assured that everything will work out for your good.
