Barren mothers bear fruit02 Dec 2015
It’s ok to feel barren or unproductive. Great people were born of completely sterile mothers.
Sampson, Samuel, and John the Baptist were all born from barren, embarrased mothers.
All of these mothers had incredible encounters with God, as he spoke to them and provided a child.
Perhaps because they knew that their sons were not from them, but a gift from God, the Lord was free and eager to use them to display his glory.
Cry out to God like Hannah, and get a son like Samuel.
It’s through these kinds of humble people that God does mighty, earth shattering things.
“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
In the Lord my horn is lifted high…
She who was barren has borne seven children”
(1 Samuel 2)
