When a couple has been waiting upon the Lord for months or years for the fruit of the womb, we tend to ask so many questions.
Why does God permit his loved ones to suffer pain, such as the pain of being unable to bear children?
Why can’t He just give a child to parents who want one badly?
The real answer is that we don’t know. What we do know is that we live in a fallen world where life doesn’t always go the way we had hoped. We also know that God’s love for us is greater than anything we could ever imagine. But for reasons we do not fully understand, He does not always allow us to have what we desire.
Maybe it’s because He has a different plan for us. When we get to Heaven we will find out. But now we must trust that heaven is a perfect place with a perfect and loving God, where all pain will be erased and life will be everything we hoped it to be. Until then, we cannot stop trusting that the God of that Heaven is also the same God who lives now in our hearts.
Only God knows the real answer to this question that has bothered the heart of many. We humans cannot understand it all on this side of eternity.
There are three things that are never satisfied—
no, four that never say, “Enough!”: the grave,
the barren womb,
the thirsty desert,
the blazing fire. (Prov. 30:15-16)
My prayer today however is that God will open every womb that has been shut and give unto those seeking God’s face for the fruit of the womb wonderful gifts of children in Jesus’ name.
It is well
