Childbirth and Healthy Children

Do you know that God loves children? The first command God gave to mankind was to "be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28).

Furthermore, did you know that God is the One who provides the ability to conceive children? According to Psalms 127:3, "children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward". In Genesis 33:5, Jacob refers to his children as "the children whom God has graciously given your servant."

If your heart's desire has been to experience the joy of childbirth, but you have not been able to do so thus far, you may feel that God doesn't want you to have children. You may feel that something is wrong with you and you don't deserve children. This simply isn't the truth! The truth is that God wants to give you the desires of your heart and he doesn't want to withhold any good thing from you.

You have a right to conceive and birth healthy children

God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). What he does for one person he will do for another! There are abundant examples in the Bible of couples who were barren, sought God, and then later conceived and birthed incredible and influential children. In fact, there isn't a case in the Bible where someone struggled with infertility and sought God and didn't eventually conceive and birth a child! So, why wouldn't God do the same for you?

To get a better understanding, look at this chart of children born to previously barren women in the Bible. Or, here is a list of scriptures concerning fertility and childbirth.
