I know maybe not everyone out there can relate to this, but that’s ok! The women that can relate are the ones I am talking to! God created us in His image. Huh!?! Well that’s what it says in the bible, So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Gen. 1:27 He did however make some distinct differences between man and woman.
One of those differences is that as women we carry within us the house for all mankind to be knit and formed by God. So why does it seem like we have disregarded this very important part of being a woman created in the image of God? Why do we just turn our bodies over to the medical community thinking they "know" more than we do so we should just trust them? Why don't we go to God about giving birth? I mean, after all he did create us! Am I saying we shouldn't go to doctors or midwives? Of course not! That would be very ignorant of me. Doctors & midwives play a very important role in our births. They are like a tour guide for our births. They can tell us all the amazing facts about all the amazing sights and places we are seeing. But they are not the author of those places, nor are they the ones that lived the experiences that made those places so famous. They can just tell you about them so they play a key role in the knowledge you have about your birth but they in fact did not give you the ability to birth.
They did not knit you and make you even while you were in your mother’s womb! So why give them all the credit? Why not go to God, and ask Him how He created you to give birth? Ask Him if you have the strength; ask Him if your pelvis is big enough? He says He knows every hair on your head, right? So surely He knows how wide your pelvis is? And if He is the one, who knits babies into their mothers’ wombs, (and He is) then surely He would not make that baby bigger than their mothers’ pelvis right? Again I am not saying that sometimes things that God did not intend to happen don’t happen because they do. We do have an adversary who would like to mess around with the fact that God gave man and woman the ability to be fruitful and multiply. Our adversary does not like the fact that we are like God. But to me that is all the more reason we should go to God. We need our births to be directed by Him!
Let me encourage you, if you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, pray. Ask God to show you what he originally intended for you as a woman. I think what you will find is remarkable. Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. God loves us, and love never fails! Believe what God has to say about you, your birth, and your baby! When you go to give birth, birth like your God made you!
