The Covenant

Deuteronomy 7:12-14:
Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.

God desires to bless his children. Throughout the Bible we can see a loving God that desires to give his children the best. However, the best from God comes when we are obedient to his commands. God gave the Children of Israel specific instructions when they entered their new land.

With these instructions came blessings from God. The Lord declared he would keep his covenant if they would abide by his will. 

Has God given you any specific instructions as it relates to infertility? 

It should not be taken lightly that God in the blessings that he promises to give them that fertility is included. “…he will also bless the fruit of thy womb…there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.”

The Lord promised that they seed would live forever. That’s right. It’s not just about one generation being born but generations to come. God made a covenant to extend their lives for years to come and to provide for them as well. Their cattle would not be barren as well.

This is so important to recognize that God has everything in our lives covered. He has made provision for us to be fruitful and multiply and he will also take care of our families once they are born. God has not left a stone unturned. Sometimes we think we can’t have children because we can’t afford it, but that is not the case. God promised to open up the womb and remove barrenness from men and women and then provide for you.

Take faith and believe that God wants you to have a child. It is your right and a child of God and an heir to the Kingdom. When God spoke to the children of Israel he spoke to you. If ye be Christ, then are you of Abraham’s seed. 

Everything he promised to them, he promised to you.
