God Is the Giver of Life


Pray... because God is the Giver of all life.

Then the Lord took note of Sarah as He had said, and the Lord for Sarah as He had promised. So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him (Genesis 21:1–2).

If you are struggling with infertility, you should take special interest in the stories of the first ladies of the faith—Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachel. Sarah was 90 years old when God fulfilled His promise and she conceived Isaac. Rebekah did not give birth to her twins until she had been married for 20 years. And Rachel struggled for years to have a child, whereas her older sister, Leah, had many.
So many of you who are struggling with infertility can find a great point of identification in these ladies. Their struggle is your struggle. And note that when each was finally able to have a child, it gave her a greater sense of appreciation for God’s blessing in her life.

It’s also so important to notice how, for each of these women, prayer was central. It was specific answered prayer when God brought about life in the barren wombs of these women. And men, pay attention to the active role that their husbands played in praying to God to open their wives’ wombs. No matter what course you may take, don’t forget to pray, to seek God’s will. If He blesses you with a child, remember that God is the Giver of life. If He doesn’t, may God give you the grace to accept it and clarity as to whether giving a godly home to a child through adoption is the route God is leading you to take. Either way, God is the Giver of all life.
