I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of the Lord today. As always, when embarking on a sensitive subject like today, I ask that you keep an open mind.
(Psalms 127:3) Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (Jeremiah 1:5) Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations
I will throw myself under the bus again. When I minister to you about a lot of the subjects we cover, I have either first-hand experience or have spoken to someone who has experienced what the message is about. According to recent studies there are about 1.3 million abortions each year, that's 5,000 babies each day and 1 every 22 seconds!
How does God feel about abortion? God does consider an abortion, murder. The bible says that the fruit of your womb is blessed. So therefore once the seed is planted, it is a baby. A fetus is a baby in its first stage of becoming a newborn baby. If God approved of abortions, then that would mean that He approves of murder. The bible says that God knows us before we are even born. God has plans for your unborn child.
What should you do if you have had an abortion?
If you have had an abortion, the first thing you need to do is to realize and accept the fact that you have committed murder. I know that sounds harsh but there is no other way to put it. Then you need to pray and ask for God's forgiveness for aborting His fruit. If you pray with a humble spirit and are truly sorry then you are forgiven. God is so compassionate and merciful that He will forgive you and will not hold it against you. God still loves you.
If you are pregnant and contemplating whether or not to have the baby, please pray about the circumstances. I am not saying to pray for an answer from God on whether or not to have an abortion, you also have others choices such as adoption. There a countless of couples that cannot conceive children. You can consider adoption through a legal Christian agency. If you are thinking about having an abortion, go online and see what happens to the fetus that you are carrying once you decide to get rid of the fetus. You will see unrecognizable body parts in a dumpster or garbage bag.
Children are a blessing from God and therefore the Lord will make a way for your family. I realize that there are so many single mothers that are raising their children on their own. Trust in Jesus! Pray and read your bible! God will see you and your little one through your circumstances, no matter how difficult they seem to you. You may have family members telling you that you can't take care of a baby. They may be saying you can't take care of two babies, but please remember it's your life on the line, not theirs. There is nothing too hard for God, trust in Him and He will bless you abundantly for your obedience to His Word. Never let anyone talk you into doing something that you know in your spirit is wrong. LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I give You praise and honor on today. Lord, I am praying for the women today, that if any one has had an abortion that you forgive them in Jesus name. Lord they might have been unaware of what they were doing against your will for their life, forgive them Lord. Lord, I am praying for the women that might be pregnant, that they realize they are carrying a blessing from you. Lord, I speak your peace upon their lives, I speak peace upon their entire household. Lord, I am praying for the single parents on today, Lord that you bless them with all of their needs and wants on today for their trusting in you, to make a way for them and their children, in Jesus name, Amen.
