Extract from expecting Daily Pregnancy Devotion
Week 1: Day 1
Genesis 1:28 (CEV) God gave them his blessing and said: Have a lot of children! Fill the earth with people and bring it under your control. Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds in the sky, and every animal on the earth.
The God of Heaven has pronounced a blessing over you – have a lot of children. If you wonder whether God’s will is for you to have children, Genesis 1:28 should settle it. God’s blessing is to have a family. It is His will.
After God created humankind He blessed them and said, “Have children.” His mandate has not changed. He wants you to produce a lineage. Inability to conceive is not a sign that children are not part of God’s plan for you. God’s will for you is to have a child. Offspring are a blessing that He wants to bestow on you and your spouse.
Decide to settle this in your heart once and for all: God wants you to have a child. No ifs or buts. Begin the journey of faith to receive what He has promised.
The Almighty has spoken: Have a lot of children. It is your destiny. Believe it, and receive it.
Confession and prayer: God wants me to have a baby. How exciting!
