I know this Testimony will bless your sox off!
My friend Heidi shares her testimony of conception after chemotherapy and menopause! It’s my prayer after you read this that you will come to know personally for yourself that NOTHING is impossible with God!
Your Age is Not an Issue!
If you are faced with a medical prognosis suggesting conception is greatly reduced due to your age, know that the truth in God’s Word is available to all who believe in Him.
God says you can be kept fresh and green and bear fruit into old age.
“The righteous will ﬂourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will ﬂourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, the Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in Him.” Ps 92:12–15
If you are concerned about your age affecting your ability to conceive or have healthy children, then spend time meditating on the truth for a personal revelation and until you see your life through the eyes of what is in the Word and not through your natural eyes and understanding.
Absolutely nothing is impossible with God and no Word from God shall be without power!
God is not a respecter of persons. This means that no matter what your age or your condition, if you believe in Jesus and the truth in His Word then you already have everything you need in Christ to overcome the natural so you can conceive, carry and give birth to your own healthy biological children!

How to rest in Jesus finished work during Pregnancy Complications!
I felt led to share with those of you who face complications in your pregnancy not to be thrown “if” a challenge presents itself. Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by the complications we face and we get caught up in analyzing why they are there or how come we are struggling etc. But at the end of the day, try not to focus on the natural facts and on the why’s or how’s, instead focus on the solution, which is Jesus and His finished work!
During my 1st pregnancy it seemed like a constant battle for Kaitlin’s life! We’d overcome one hurdle and another would present itself BUT as we stopped looking to the challenges and instead looked to Jesus and focussed on the answer, we were able to get the victory every single time.
Remember always that Jesus has ALREADY won the battle for you! The price has been paid and the victory already won over any form of sickness or disease – and this includes all the complications that can manifest itself in your pregnancy!
The Bible says many are the afflictions of the righteous BUT the Lord shall deliver us from them all. Therefore,the Good News for those of us in the New Covenant is that we already have victory over any complication we may face in a pregnancy because Jesus has already gone before us and won the battle through His finished work.
I encourage you to take one day at a time as you grow in this truth and learn to rest in what Jesus has already purchased for you. Keep meditating on the truth of what Jesus has already done because this will help to renew your mind and for this truth to come to life and become real to you personally. Also remember that you don’t have to labour to make healing manifest! One of the most powerful prayers you can pray is:-
PRAYER: “Lord I can’t do this, I can’t make this happen so I resign from all of my trying and self-effort and I ask you to help me because all things are possible with you”.
This will help you to take the focus off of you and what you can do and to rest in Jesus power and ability instead. I know many who have experienced a supernatural breakthrough this way. It is soooo freeing to know that we don’t have to fight this battle alone and do everything in our own strength. Jesus is right there with you and He is looking to show Himself strong to you and help you in your time of need
Now that is Good News!

Question: Can our Past Hinder our Breakthrough?
Answer: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Eph 2:8-9
One area that I haven’t yet specifically covered is to do with our past. Remember, we are….

Mark 5:35-36 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”
What does it mean to “only believe”? Unfortunately many read this Scripture and think to “only believe” means that they are to look to themselves and to their own faith or ability to believe for the breakthrough they need. But was Jesus saying to Jairus “You must only have faith for me to heal your daughter?”
When you know what the words “only” and “believe” mean you will understand that this was NOT based on Jairus “ability to believe” but on Jesus “willingness to heal” and to show Himself strong in the situation.
The Word “only” in the Greek means “only” or “alone”. But this Word comes from a root word that means to remain, abide, to sojourn, tarry; not to depart, to continue to be present, to be held, and kept, continually.
These definitions are consistent with Scripture. Look at what Jesus said elsewhere…
Jn 15:7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
The word “abide” in the scripture above is the same root word that the word ‘only’ in Mark 5:36 comes from!
Jesus was saying to Jairus, “Only abide and continue to remain in me!”
The Word ‘believe’ in the Greek means to be persuaded of, to credit, place confidence in.
So ‘believe’ means to have trust and confident assurance. But think about this – What do you need to place your trust and confidence in? In your ability to believe, or in Jesus willingness to heal?
I believe the meaning of Faith has been misinterpreted and has therefore caused many to feel condemned when they doubt. This can consequently lead to feeling inadequate in faith because they feel they are lacking in this area. But faith has nothing to do with our ability – it is not about putting our trust and confidence in ourselves!
The Amplified Bible defines the word ‘faith’ as… the leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness…(refer to the following Scriptures in the Amplified Bible Col 1:4, Col 2:5, 2 Thes 1:11, 2 Tim 3:15, Heb 10:22, Heb 13:7).
Therefore Faith is about putting our trust in God’s power, wisdom and goodness and not in ourselves! Remember faith is ‘the way of Salvation’, and the Salvation Jesus purchased for us includes perfect health and wholeness in every area of our lives. Faith for Salvation (and for everything Salvation contains) literally means that we are believing, trusting and resting in Jesus ability and not our own! We rest in Jesus finished work on the Cross! Faith doesn’t earn Salvation but rather positions you to receive what Jesus has already done!
Therefore, when Jesus said “Only Believe” to Jairus, He was saying, “Jairus, don’t look to yourself, or to the deadness of your circumstances BUT only remain, abide and continue to look to me by trusting in my ability and on my willingness to heal”.
Can you see now how this had nothing to do with Jairus ability, BUT had everything to do with Jesus ability? Jairus wasn’t to look to himself and try to find the faith to believe BUT all he ‘had to do’ was to only look to Jesus! Jesus is the author of life and perfector of faith!
This is also consistent with Scripture…
John 3:14-15 in The Message Bible says… In the same way that Moses lifted the serpent in the desert so people could have something to see and then believe, it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up—and everyone who looks up to him, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life.
This scripture is referring to the account when the children of Israel were wandering in the wilderness. They were being bitten by poisonous fiery serpents, which resulted in death (see Numbers chapter 21). When the people cried out to God for deliverance, God said to Moses in Numbers 21:8 “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” And do you know what happened? Numbers 21:9 says So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.
The Bronze serpent on the pole was a type of Jesus and His finished work on the Cross. Jesus bore all our sin, sickness, disease and death on his body. Therefore, everyone who looked to Jesus lived!
Now back to Mark chapter 5 and to Jairus…Jesus was saying to Jairus, look to me and your daughter will live! And do you know what happened next?
Mark 5:41-42 in the Amplified Bible says…Gripping her firmly by the hand, He said to her, Talitha cumi—which translated is, Little girl, I say to you, arise from the sleep of death! 42 And instantly the girl got up and started walking around—for she was twelve years old. And they were utterly astonished and overcome with amazement.
Jairus’ daughter was healed and made whole!
My friend, be encouraged because Jesus is unchanging! He is always the SAME, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)! He cannot change His nature and He is still looking to show Himself strong to you! So let the Holy Spirit lead you into all truth by taking what belongs to Jesus and making it known to you personally.
And let me end by encouraging you to stop looking to yourself, trying to build your faith and trusting in your ability to believe, but rather remain, abide and continue to look to Jesus by trusting in His ability and resting in His finished work instead”.
And soon the rest will be History!

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Psalm 23:5
Through Jesus finished work, God has already prepared the banquet table for you with everything you need for life and for godliness!
I love this Scripture verse in Psalm 23. Note that it says that the table is prepared in the “presence” and not in the “absence” of your enemies?! This means that:-
Unfortunately, many believers lack knowledge on what God has already freely provided so they are waiting for Him to do something for them. The truth is however, that the Father is waiting on them to come and taste (which means to partake) and see (which means to experience) what He has already prepared!
God wants you to experience what He has freely provided! But God is Love and He can only operate out of love so this means that He cannot force His will upon you. If you read the famous love chapter in 1 Corinthians chapter 13 verse 5 it says in the New Living Translation that love does not demand its own way. And The Message says love does not force itself on others. So even though the Father wants all men to be saved, He will not coerce or force His will upon anyone. He will however do everything possible to reach out and to show Himself strong to them.
This same truth applies to everything that Jesus purchased through His finished work such as healing, provison and fruitfulness. God won’t force you to receive His blessings. But He will do everything He can to help you! The nature of His Spirit is to woe, guide, teach and lead you into all truth and to show you He’s already prepared the way and given you everything you need for your breakthrough! He doesn’t want you to come to Him to earn but rather to learn what He has already done so that you can come, taste and see His goodness!
Remember always that God is looking to SHOW Himself strong to you. He is wanting to reveal His Salvation (which is healing, deliverance, provision, protection and fruitfulness) to you in every area of your life. He doesn’t want you to come and beg for the crumbs under the table but to come and partake in what He has already freely provided! Therefore, I encourage you to run to Him (not from Him) so that He can SHOW you how to cross the line from barrenness into fruitfulness in every area of your life!
