TFTD: You are spiritually pregnant…Carry it to term
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (New King James Version)
2 Then the LORD answered me and said: “ Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
Genesis 1:28 a (New King James Version)
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply;
There are many believers walking around today “spiritually pregnant”. Some are in their first trimester and not even aware that they are carrying a vision. If you know anything about being pregnant the first few months of your pregnancy are very critical.
You have to begin taking prenatal vitamins, drinking plenty of water, getting plenty of rest, and feeding on the right things. You have to remove bad behaviors and negative activities from your daily routine. A new life is forming in your belly.
The same is true for your spiritual pregnancy. You have to begin exercising in the spirit through prayer. There is power when you get on your knees or lie prostrate before the Lord. You have to surround yourself with bible believing and teaching people. You have to take your spiritual prenatal vitamins daily. Studying and reading the Word of God contains all of the essential vitamins that you need in order to have your vision come to fruition.
Now like a physical pregnancy your vision can not be born in the first trimester. You have to know that your vision is for an appointed time. Do not try to rush the process. Allow God to work on His timing. When God places a vision in your belly only you can carry it to term. The problem many of us face is that we begin doubting the vision. We become fearful of becoming spiritual parents.
Are we equipped to birth this vision? Will we be able to nurture and take care of this vision when it comes to pass? Our fear, doubt, and insecurities often cause us to abort the vision before the second trimester. Let me encourage you that God wants to birth something within you. No one else can carry it for you. You have to carry it to term! Take care of your vision, feed on the right spiritual things and get ready to birth what God has placed inside of you.
Food for thought: If you are not multiplying then you are dying. What good does it do to become “spiritually pregnant” over and over again if you are never going to give birth? Carrying your vision may be uncomfortable and delivery may be painful, but in the end your vision will speak and not lie.
Carry your “spiritual pregnancy” to term. There is something amazing that is waiting to be born.
I pray that you have a blessed day. Take time to find out if you are “spiritually pregnant”. Nurture your vision so that it will change the world.
