2019 – THE YEAR OF THE OPEN WOMB!
God has good news for those who’ve cried out for a child, grown weary in waiting, anguished over an empty womb, and sunk into deep despair in their quest for fruitfulness. It is time!
She who was barren has borne seven children! 1 Samuel 2:5
2019 is a year of surprising reversals, turnarounds and accelerated answers to prayer. God is pouring out the blessing of Hannah. He is turning barrenness into blessing, futility into fruitfulness, despondency into great joy.
Like Hannah, the barren woman has cried out for God to open her womb and grown weary in waiting for the answer she longs for. She feels neglected, forgotten and bereft. Sorrow keeps her from seeing beyond her pain.
“I am a woman with a broken heart,” said Hannah. “I have been praying out of my great anguish and grief.”
“Go in shalom,” Eli answered, “and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”
“May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then Hannah went on her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.Early the next morning [she and her husband] arose and worshiped before the Lord…So in the course of time, Hannah conceived and gave birth to a son. 1Samuel 1:17-19
When Hannah turned her face away from despair to worship God wholeheartedly, He opened her womb and she gave birth to a child of purpose and destiny in the kingdom of God.
And this is the year of the Womb! In the Hebrew calendar, the year 2019 is 5779. 5 is grace, 7 is God’s perfect completion. 77 is His double portion blessing. And 9 is the number tet, having the form of a basket or womb that is the sanctuary for the 9 months of pregnancy! 2019 is a year of divinely ordered fruitfulness, fulfillment and multiplication.
So take heart, my child. I have not forgotten you. Stop striving and start dancing. Wipe away your tears and delight yourself in me! Release your pain to me—Let it go! Abide in me again so that I may give you rest and abundant life! Turn away from your problem so that you can see and conceive my promise! I am about to open your womb to a child of kingdom purpose and divine destiny. LIVE AS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE PROMISE!
