As the day draws near, every pregnant woman finds themselves more and more uncomfortable. Most of us dont know what to do with ourselves. You are not comfortable sitting, lying, standing, sleeping ….anything you do is a bit of an effort. You want to be done, but you cant be done until you are done…..The husbands can’t seem to do things right as you feel ‘up to your neck’

Then the subtle pain begins….initially in short episodes. Then you have them coming stronger. The stronger they come, the more your anticipation grows. Every contraction is a step towards meeting your baby. The day you chose to get pregnant was the day you enrolled for your labour pain. Its got nothing to do with the size of the baby , whether big baby or small baby, PAIN IS NATURALLY INEVITABLE. No matter how much someone loves you, they cannot birth your baby for you at labour. God gives you a vision for a purpose. You rejoice at the thoughts of it, you are excited that it will soon be manifest, but labour is a MUST…. before there is a new beginning , there must be pain.


Pain is not nice.

But look sisters,  JESUS BORE PAIN BEFORE GLORY! If you opt for cesarean because you are scared of natural labour pain. …you will still feel a different pain. Nothing good comes easy….Jesus paid for it…YES…BUT HE BORE THE PAIN.  Don’t look for easy pain free way out of your path. Quick and easy may sound nice but with God, there is no cutting corners.I have heard of supernatural births….yes, you still feel something.


DELAYED PROGRESS: There is a set time for labour. Medically, the doctors dont like your labour to go on for too long. A delay in labour does not mean that the baby will not be delivered , it just means that we need to start making plans to get extra help and that we may need to do something different from what we have been doing before. When its time for you to birth what God has put in you, there can be delays. Dont give up, pack your bag and go. QUITERS DONT BIRTH GREATNESS. If you carry the pregnancy home,because you waited in the labour ward for a few hours and nothing is happening,  it will cause you great distress until you lose it. God has all it takes to bring you through it. Dont give up.

Peradventure,  God gave you a clear word,  but now, you dont seem so sure anymore. HE IS FAITHFUL. He that will come will come. The virgins waited for a long time but then gave up and missed the reward….PLEASE WAIT A LITTLE LONGER BEFORE GIVING UP ON GOD.

Number 1 can lead to number 2

LOSS OF STRENGTH. ….as labour almost reaches the peak…..YOU START TO GET TIRED. At this point, you hear women say, I AM TIRED, I have pushed and pushed and nothing seem to be happening.

You are the ones whom God wants me to address today

Ha, this is so difficult to manage physically!

You have run out of steam. God called you, you know it. In fact, you know that the time is now, but you just cant find the drive to do it anymore. At this stage, everyone, the doctors, the nurses are shouting …PUSH, WOMAN….the baby inside is getting tired because they are being squeezed tirelessly and you just need a bit more help. At times, those who cheered you up are gone because they have waited so long for the birthing and they have run out of patience….

At this point, we can see what you are carrying and we know its alive….PLS DONT GIVE UP.

You have potentials that have been known to many. You have stood publicly to announce Gods mandate for you. Broken-hearted that you have invested so much and nothing is coming, you get discouraged, GOD SAYS TO TELL YOU TO LOOK UP UNTO THE HILLS…..THAT IS WHERE YOUR HELP IS COMING FROM.

Stop looking at what is going on around you.

Remember the day you realized that you are pregnant with a vision. You were so excited. You were full of hope, now you need your 3Gs…..You need people who will not push you down. You need people who will tell you that you can do it.

You need people to remind you what your baby will look like once birthed. You need sweet melodies of how you have overcome in times like this in the past.

Are you in that moment now, in your marriage?

STOP, BEFORE YOU LOSE THE PLOT…..Dont listen to voices telling you that its impossible. Dont listen to stories of how people fail at this stage. If you have people telling you that in the room, ask them to give you a minute ……their negative talk can make you even more weary.

I pray for you , that God will give you strenght to move again. That He will empower you to rise beyond your capability and birth the greatness that is in you.

WHY YOU NEED TO PUSH NOW…..The whole world is waiting….CREATION IS WAITING FOR YOUR MANIFESTATION.  When a woman is in labour, the doctors, the nurses, the cleaners. .everyone …..cant rest until the baby is born. Your success is their success.

They are waiting to shout…THE BABY IS HERE…There is a cloud of witness waiting to give a cheerful applause.  Once you have brought forth, give it a few hours, you cant remember the exact pains that you had!

The memory of it is faint…..WHY? That was how God designed it to be. The joy of your success drowns the pain. When you look at those tiny eyes, you know it was worth the pain

Romans 8:18-28 MSG

That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens. All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; it’s within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy. Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

God will make it worth the pains for you.

The pain is almost unbearable now, but its only because you are getting tired.

You are getting tired becuase you are human and you have waited for a long time.

You have waited because its part of the growing,  its part of the story.

Dont let the pain scare you. You are built to last the labour.

Motherhood gives us a picture of what God designed for us in our race through life. Its a beautiful exprience to birth a new thing. My prayer is that every woman who desires this, who has waited and is getting tired,  strenght will arise for you in Jesus name.

Sisters, dont give up, your present condition is nothing compared to what God has promised you. Believe me, you will forget the pain, when the lord shall announce you at your birthing. Even those who were watching from afar will come close to see for themselves. In a quick moment,  you will forget it all…..

Have a lovely week ladies.

    God bless you richly. I am reading this at a point when I can’t see the way forward. I desired an assurance of what the Lord had said before, thanks for the encouragement. Quitters don’t birth greatness. I am encouraged!
