But I don't want any more children!
Please do not miss understand us, this is not about us telling you what you should or shouldn't do.
We are all called to live by faith, “The righteous man shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:11
"Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?"
What we are saying is, we all must live by faith!
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2
We must think like God thinks, not the way we have been taught from man's reasoning.
When we meet someone for the first time and they tell us they are living by faith. what is the very first thing that comes to mind ? Be honest, they have no money, right?
We shall be covering money in a later blog ,and in fact we have extensive teaching on this subject that brings great liberty.
Coming back to the opening statement.
I don't want any more children!
We are told to live by faith so we must trust God when it comes to trusting Him to open the womb. The natural state of the womb is closed, it opens for conception and opens to give birth, the rest of the time it is closed!
"Behold, children are a gift from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3
Who are we to say no to His gifts?
Who are we to say no to The Lord over anything, either He is Lord of all or He is not Lord at all!
So, if we are taking measures to stop conception within marriage, are we living by faith?
We have heard people say ' Well I don't believe God wanted us to have more children so we took measures!'
Seriously, is your view of God so small!
Over the years we have seen people repent of their actions and have reversals and not only have more children, but also men getting their manhood back after reversal, it is quite amazing!
