Devotional 5/3

Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11:5‬ ‭

The process is the price you pay for the promise.

The Lord revealed to me that many of us (and our God given plans) have been going through the motions of a child formed in the mother’s womb. As a child is cushioned by amniotic fluid in the sac of a mothers belly, so God has poured amniotic fluid on us. What He has planted in us, the dreams the visions and the desires, is all being birthed into the world. Amniotic fluid is the protective liquid, found in the sac where the baby is held in the mothers belly. The amniotic fluid is part of the baby’s life support system. Just as the mothers amniotic sac is formed after a week and a half after conception, this where God has hidden many of us since day one. The amniotic sac is the holding place and the fluid is the covering, which prevents the child from being squished or heavenly impacted in the case of physical agitation. In spiritual terms these are the secret place of God when The lord becomes our refuge and the liquid is the covering we have by the blood of Jesus.
Had we not had the mercies of God, we would be consumed. Had we not had the precious blood of Jesus, the enemy Satan would have caused agitation in our spiritual lives and ultimately have us abort the process of our promise.
God strengthens us and brings all we need, just as a fetus in development receives all his needs through the mothers body. The amniotic fluid protects baby and helps in the development of muscles, limbs, lungs and digestive system. And it also allows the baby to move, it maintains adequate body temperature even when it’s below 0 outside or blazing hot. It’s amazing to know that God has us in a hidden place, although we have limited freedom and can’t imagine much of what will be once we are released. But we do know that God is the perfect parent so we should have nothing to worry about once being birthed. He will help us develop and nurture that which he has purposed us to do.
Let’s pray:
Lord Jesus, lord of all, lord of lords I come before asking for mercy and forgiveness- because I’ve been kicking and screaming in frustration with all you have placed in me and require of me. I present to you all those who have been doing the same, and ask you to wink your eyes over our lack of faith. We no longer desire to understand, but to believe and receive direction and instruction as we find ourselves in the birthing position, enduring birth pains and manifesting. May you be glorified, and your name exalted. I also ask that you give us supernatural power to obey your precepts. In Jesus name, Amen.
