Welcome to the 3rd installment of the sever the rope series with a heavy topic- Entitled Will you curse God? I pray God get the glory and no one else !
Let’s dive in !
We are in a time where we as women of God need to make sure that the things we are tethered to are fruitful and God honoring. We are living in a time where health is idolized and the fear of getting sick is used to create divides in the body of Christ.
Why you ask? Let’s take a look at scriptures to further break down satans tactic.
Let’s turn to Job chapter 2 verse 1
And it reads-
Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. And the Lord said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? He still holds fast his integrity, although you incited me against him to destroy him without reason.” –Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! All that a man has he will give for his life. Verse 5 But stretch out your hand and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face.” And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand; only spare his life.” So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and struck Job with loathsome sores from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. And he took a piece of broken pottery with which to scrape himself while he sat in the ashes. Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die.” But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
Job 2:1-10 ESV
Life has a way of throwing things your way without notice. You’re in a good stride and a hurdle comes out of no where. We’ve all been there right. Ladies, Biblical Womanhood is not living boldly for Christ only when things are going great. It’s when you are doing all you know to do and you get the surprise of your life like a positive pregnancy test. A positive after praying and trusting God. After working out consistently and eating right. After the vitamins and minerals in case pregnancy occured. I was so elated to tell my husband. I saw the pure excitement on his face. We were having another baby. He cautioned me to wait given the fact that we lost 5 other babies over the last 10 plus years. Regardless I could not hardly be around anyone with what I was holding inside. I was overly joyful . God had blessed me to have another baby inside me. When I was told I would never have even have one. That it was physically impossible for me to conceive.
A few days flew by then he gave me his ok. I texted a few close family members and enjoyed each symptom I experienced. Every food averision, bout of nausea, and craving. I even uttered the words whether its for 10 mins or 9 months I will give God glory. All throughout the 5th week of pregnancy in which we found out was amazing. I got the baby registry done, baby shower ideas written down, and all the supplies we needed. I even had a song that helped bring a reminder of gratitude. Mali musics song miracles. I wanted to be super confirmed before our 1st Ob appointment so I took another test a week later. Those three minutes left me in tearful stupor. The test said negative but how? Just a week ago it said positive. It was like a ninja snuck in and kick me in my chest leaving me breathless. Words escaped me. Every plan was slipping through my grasp. As I pleaded with God for right perspective. I didn’t want anything to pollute the gratitude from choosing me to have another baby. The enemy kept trying to make my words seem like hot coals on my lips- whether I’m pregnant for 10 mins or 9 months I …..WILL….. GIVE… GOD… GLORY.. with every passing moment I could feel less and a less pregnant until nothingness. I was like an empty shell. Then I remembered the declaration of satan to God in verse 5
Verse 5 But stretch out your hand and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face.”
The devil was a liar then and is a liar now. God I give you glory for the 9 times you’ve already blessed me to conceive and the 3 beautiful blessings who made it here to this Earth by your hand. I proclaim that it is hard yes very hard but God is too good to ever curse you die. God is my everything. I pray for help for the women who struggle with infertility, heal hearts worldwide, and bless wombs for your glory in Jesus name.
Will you surrender your all to God?
What are you experiencing that is hard or gut wrenching? Where are the unsubmitted areas of your life? Is it fear ? Is it loss? Is it anxiety or depression? Is it the upheaval of your plans or the financial challenges? What is left in the do not disturb box?
Will you uphold Romans 8: which says – For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:18, 35-39 ESV
