Mother of Nations! By Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: Mother of Nations!
I welcome you to this glorious month, the last month in the first half of the year of “My Case is Different”. This month, I see the God of heaven perfecting all that concerns you. This month, I shall be teaching on the theme: Mother of Nations.
This week, I shall be looking at the subject: You are a potential mother. I want you to know that God has designed you as a mother. Every woman created by God is a mother of nation. Your present situation or conditions notwithstanding, you are to be fruitful. Fruitfulness is a natural phenomenon to anyone that is rooted in God.
Many are been resisted by hell, that is why it seems as if the plan of fruitfulness in their life is not coming to pass. If you are in such category, you need an understanding of God’s provision for your fruitfulness in marriage, to combat the enemy. The Word of God says: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:28).
Note: God did not admonish you to be fruitful, but He commanded your fruitfulness. Throughout creation, God did not say, “You may”, but He said, “Be..!” Everything God said when He was creating the world came to be. Therefore, it is impossible for what God has said concerning you to fail. The Word of God says: The counsel of the Lord standeth forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations (Psalms 33:11).
Why would God want you to be fruitful? So that He can replenish the earth. Have you ever considered that if God wanted, He could have been creating more and more people to fill the whole earth, just the way He created Adam? God is the all-powerful and the Omnipotent. He can do just anything; but He gave man the assignment of procreation. He is the all-wise God. He knows what He is doing. If He didn’t put the power to conceive and bring forth there, He won’t be asking you and I to do it. So, rejoice in that you are created to fulfill God’s mandate of fruitfulness.
God has said to you, “Be fruitful”. So, negative medical reports like blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, fibroid, or any such thing cannot stop that Word from coming to pass in your life. Therefore, for everyone married according to God’s injunction, you must ‘be fruitful’. If there is anything short of this, it is not God. He can never change His Word. The Word of God says: I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him (Ecclesiastes 3:14).
There are some erroneous teachings that make people believe that barrenness is of God. Such teachers made their subjects to believe that they should see their situation as a lesson or punishment from God. God is a loving Father; He will never tempt you with evil. He said in His Word: If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Matthew 7:11). Children are good gifts which your Father will not deny you of.
The will of your heavenly Father is that you are fruitful, and the Word of God says: For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). God will not ask you to come back tomorrow for this good thing, He will give it to you right away. It is in His power to give you and He will surely give it to you NOW. This is your hour!
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).
