We define barrenness for a married couple, as not being able to have a child of their own. This can be due to various reasons or sometimes even no reason at all
The Author Of Barrenness
God is not the author of barrenness. Satan is the one who comes to steal kill and destroy, so that anything that has that characteristic is his work. Children are blessings from the Almighty God to married couples. God spoke to Adam and Eve (the first couple) in Genesis 1: 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (NKJV).
God’s first pronounced blessing upon Adam and Eve was to have children of their own, to be fruitful, and together with their fruits they are to increase and enjoy all the good things God has made available for them. That scripture sounded like God’s plan was that He actually wanted a family. He has not changed that and will never change. God is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Children are good gifts from God, you see God loves you so much and His plans are for your greatest good. He delights in your pleasure. Your sadness or sorrow brings no glory at all to Him.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
God brought you and your spouse to earth of His own will, no one forced Him to, and just as in the case of Adam and Eve He brought you here to bless you and not to oppress you, to honour you and to cause you to have victory in all areas of your life and marriage.
You Have An Enemy
Satan is God’s enemy he is seeking to steal, kill and destroy all that is God’s and that includes you. The truth is he cannot if you will be strong in the Lord, and join your faith with others of like precious faith and resist him. The Bible declares when we submit ourselves to God Almighty and then resist the devil he has no choice but to flee. Together we will put him to flight and by our God given authority demand all that is ours from him.
Despite the enemy, you have victory in Jesus Name, no matter which way the enemy comes, in form of medical complications, impotence, and so on, the Bible says in 2Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
This is so awesome, Jesus is saying not only is He going to lead you to triumph, your triumph will also release the goodness of God everywhere you go. Your victory will point others to the goodness of God.
That last scriptures begins with now, so gear up and be strong for God is at the steering, now. What you couldn’t do because you were weak in yourself, God has sent Jesus to accomplish on your behalf. He is your saviour and deliverer, Jesus specialises in setting people free from situations that are too hard for them.
All He is asking is that you trust Him. You can do that, we know the journey may not be pleasant, but take His hand He will strengthen your heart and get ready to trust Him.
…”If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23
Jesus specialises in making the impossible a reality. He came to destroy the power and oppression of every sickness, bondage, curse, and all the power of the enemy. God wants you to flourish in good things, He wants you to know that He is not the author of confusion and sadness, He is the High Priest of victory, joy, and righteousness.
With Jesus nothing is impossible, every promise you find in the word of God is for you. God is not trying to teach you a lesson through hardship and torment, He delights in your being blessed. He is with you to help you, the covenant you have with Christ is to enforce the destruction of the works of the enemy.
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1John 4:4
Glory to God, that is so exciting, the Bible says you have overcome already, you are not about to overcome barrenness and the trouble that comes with it but you have overcome, that is what you need to keep saying to yourself. Declare it by faith, say I have overcome unfruitfulness for the greater one is in me and through Him I have overcome.
