“Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the Lord….” Isaiah 66:9
For those women who have been in labor, you understand it as an incredible time of pain, almost to the point of being unbearable. Though you might want to give up, what keeps you going is the final outcome. At the end of it all, there will be a beautiful, precious baby. Out of the pain comes a new birth… a transformation of life.
At times, God guides us all through labor pains. These pains can be almost unbearable, as we want to give up on ourselves or give up on life, but know that these pains are temporary. God has allowed them into our lives in order to transform us to a new life. The final outcome is what He desires and will bring forth.
- “In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:6-7
God promises delivery from the pain for all those who persist in putting their hope in Him.
- “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
New life is a beautiful, precious thing that God desires for all of His children. If you are experiencing pain right now, hold on, a transformation of life is coming if you put all your hope and trust in Him who can and will deliver you.
- “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.” Acts 5:20
