Mother of Nations! (2) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo
Topic: Mother of Nations!
I welcome you to this week’s teaching. Last week, I started this series by carefully examining the inheritance of fruitfulness that you have in God. You are specially designed for procreation, which is the will of God for all His children.
Although the devil might be militating against your blessing of fruitfulness, but you should not give him place. The Bible says: Neither give place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27). His mission was well defined in John 10:10 he has come to steal, kill, and destroy. I pray that he will not steal your joy in Jesus’ name.
This week, I shall be sharing on this topic: Have Faith! Faithlessness has been the reason why so many people are yet to get their desired miracle. Faith is the channel through which you can get anything from God. As our good Father, He said: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you (Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV). You should ask because Jesus said we should ask. Do not assume that God knows that you are married and you should have children. Yes, He knows, but He wants you to still ask. While asking, you must believe that He is able to make you fruitful, this is the working of your faith. God’s Word says: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).
Let us examine the life of Abraham and Sarah, the couple who trusted God to the point of mockery. God told him: …As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her (Genesis 17:15-16 emphasis mine). This is a woman that by every human standard, she was not expected to be pregnant again, not to talk of giving birth. But her husband received this message from God in faith, and he started calling her by her new name.
Your case is not impossible for God. He gave Sarah a child at a very old age; He shall give you your own child. Do not allow your situation to take your eyes away from God, who has a plan of fruitfulness for you. If your husband tells you that he sees you carrying a baby, do not say, “How can?” God can!
You are a mother of nations. Kings are in your loins and great men and women are to be birth by you; do not allow faithlessness to deny you of this great blessing. Claim your children by faith. I see you assuming your new status of motherhood in Jesus’ name.
This goes for you too as a man. Your faith is very crucial; it will help your wife a lot. God told Abram in Genesis 17:4-5: As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee (emphasis mine).
It is already too late for the devil. You have God on your side and He will not disappoint you. Stand strong in faith. I pray that the grace to stand strong in faith be your portion in Jesus name. The points below will help you to build your faith and to stay strong in His grace
- Feed on the Word of God
- Read materials written by anointed men of God on this issue
- Do not company with those who do not believe and have contrary opinion about the Word of God
- Discard all forms of alternatives
Fruitfulness is an inheritance that you have, if you are a child of God. Being born again is the gate-way to fruitfulness. If you are yet to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you can do so now. By confessing your sin and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. If you would want to give your life to Christ, you can say this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
If you prayed this simple prayer, congratulations, you are now a child of God! He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
