Mother of Nations! (4) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Author: Pastor Faith Oyedepo
Topic: Mother of Nations! (4)

Dear Reader,

You have been exposed to what makes you a mother of nation via God’s Word. First, your inheritance in God forbids unfruitfulness.  Also, you must stand against the wiles of the devil by taking a step of faith.

Your attitude which is very important in getting your desired miracle must change from sad to being joyful. I believe by now, your expectation is very high, and your desires shall not be cut off in Jesus’ name.

In this concluding part this week, I shall be considering this topic: Keeping my blessing. .  The Word of God says: Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate (Psalm 127:3-5).  Right from the period of your pregnancy, to the time of childhood upbringing, you must know that you are just a custodian of God’s heritage. I want you to have this understanding about your children:

Children are blessings from God: They are blessings to the family, and are unique blends of their parents.  It is important as a family, to understand this fact that children are given to us as part of our heritage; they are part of our inheritance in Christ Jesus.  It is important for parents to see them as part of their heritage from the Almighty God. In case you don’t have them yet, begin to imagine them as part of your blessings in Christ.  They are on their way, because God created you to be fruitful and He has pronounced you fruitful.

Children are gifts from God: We are made to understand from God’s Word that we are created in the image of God, then, those children as well are perfect picture of God. You are privileged to have them as gifts from Him. The Bible says: it can never by your making, children come as gift. These gifts are to be treasured.  You cannot buy them, you can only receive them with thanksgiving.

Children are not burdens: Quite a number of parents see their children as burdens.  When the children do something wrong, instead of standing up to their own responsibilities, they look at them as burdensome and troublesome.  Your perspective in life is very important. It determines what you eventually get. The Bible also says: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7).

When you see a child as a burden in your life, that child will truly be a burden to you. Children are blessings from God.  I want you to change your perspective about your children.  See them, and look at them with your spiritual eyes as blessings of the Lord. The Word of the Lord says: The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it (Proverbs 10:22). Your children shall not add sorrow to you.  Maybe, you have children that are problematic or they are like “thorns” in your flesh, today, I pray that God’s power will reach them.  No matter how troublesome they are, God will turn their lives around for good in Jesus’ mighty name.

Children are assets: From the Scripture we started with, verse 4 says: As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of thy youth.  An arrow for the mighty man is an asset, a weapon of warfare to him. So, also are the children. In other words, children are assets, and blessings.  Verse 5 also says: Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.  God wants you to enjoy your children; they shall make you happy and not sorrowful in Jesus name.

Being born again is the gateway to fruitfulness. If you are yet to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you can do so now. If you would want to give your life to Christ, you can say this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

If you prayed this simple prayer, congratulations, you are now a child of God! He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace in Jesus’ Name!! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
