Scripture Reading: Psalm 107:1-10.
Share this intriguing testimony. I am Sis ‘A’, married into a family that the enemy limited their fruitfulness in marriage to only one female child, then no more! I cried to GOD ALMIGHTY who brought me here to never allow the enemy have dominion over my fruitfulness. To the Glory of God after several battles I had a baby boy. After that, anxiety increased if the second child will come. The DSD Team joined us in prayers to God not to allow us be put to shame and God fought the battle our battles Himself. I conceived again after few months the baby died in the womb. I cried to God Almighty in my distress. He heard my cry and came down to rescue me. I conceived again; but when it was time for my baby to come, the enemy tried once again. I laboured for two days without progress. The pain was severe and at a stage I almost expired. I was too weak after two days of labour and surgery was an option. However, as the preparation for surgery was on, I suddenly vomited and my baby pushed down and almost fell down; but for the vigilance of the doctors. God gave me a baby boy. Thanks be to God.”
Beloved, so many families are bound in this form; limited by evil hands upon their family due to evil foundations or covenants entered into by their forefathers. The consequences can be painful and except the Lord intervenes, such families are bound forever. The Scripture says, “If the foundation be destroyed what can the righteous do?” (Psa. 11:3). Some families die prematurely, some get mad at a certain age, to some marriage or child bearing is delayed. Strange diseases which defy any known medical solution afflict some families. The list is endless. V. 10 of our reference puts it this way, “Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron.” “The family into which our sister married was bound with limitation of having only a child and no more. Our sister cried unto the Lord and He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their hands in sunder” (V. 14); the yoke was broken. Is your family under any bondage? Then go to God today in serious prayer and He will remove the distress.
