FAQ – Is it God’s will for me to have a Baby? | Hannah’s Victory.

FRUITFUL at every Age and Every Stage!

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!

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!

FAQ – Can our Past Hinder our Breakthrough?

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

Are Women allowed to Teach in Church?

Check out my husbands latest blog post, answering the age old question, did Paul really say that women should be silent and not teach in church?

Taste and See God’s Provision for You!

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:-

  • In the presence of Death there is Life.
  • In the presence of Brokenness there is Wholeness
  • In the presence of Sickness there is Health
  • In the presence of Lack there is Abundance…and…
  • In the presence of Barrenness there is Fruitfulness!

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!

God is not the Author or Enforcer of Sickness or Disease!

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. JAMES 1:17

God-is-goodGod is good—all the time! Sickness, disease or pain of any kind are not good gifts, and they never will be!

In the beginning, God created all things to be good (Genesis 1:31)! Sickness, disease, pain and death did not exist because God did not create them. So when God created Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they were perfect—fearfully and wonderfully made. God had created them to be blessed, fruitful and healthy. Everything within our body was designed by God to function in full health with no complications of any kind. However, many believe that their bad health or medical condition is somehow God’s will, plan or is a situation that He has brought about so that He can teach them something. But nothing could be further from the truth! God’s Word tells us that we were created to be healthy. So if God was making us sick or withholding healing from us, this would mean that He was working against His own plan, and this simply does not make sense.

More often than not the reason we struggle with sickness or disease is as a result of physical complications in our bodies. This is not God’s doing but is the result of living in a fallen world. God never intended His children to be sick. But it is due to the fall, why many are now suffering with many different forms of sickness, disease and pain.

To be confident in the truth of who God is, you need only to look at His Son Jesus. Jesus came as God in the flesh. He revealed that the nature and character of God is only ever good. And to see God at work, we only need to look at Jesus (John 14:7). Jesus was God on the earth. He was the exact image and representation of the Father (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus clearly showed us that the works He did were the works of the Father. He sent Jesus to do good on this earth. In fact, Acts 10:38, NKJV, tells us that Jesus “went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him”. Jesus never gave someone a sickness or disease. He touched people, healed them and removed their diseases.

Often, when people get sick, or die, God ends up getting the blame. But God created all things to be good.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. JOHN 10:10, NKJV

Jesus revealed throughout the New Testament that the devil is the enforcer of sickness and disease and that the nature and character of God is always to heal, deliver, set free, rescue and to protect. The devil may be the enforcer BUT God has the answer! He sent Jesus! He sent forth His Word and healed you, redeemed you and set you free (Psalm 107). So stop blaming God for what the devil or this fallen world has thrown at you and and instead Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith.

The price has already been paid and the victory already won for you!

FAQ – How do I stop ‘doing’ and start ‘being’?

Question: You mentioned in a recent post that we need to stop ‘doing healing’ by working towards healing, instead we need to meditate on Jesus finished work until we ARE healed, which means that where we are walking in and experiencing healing. Do I just envision my breakthrough by meditating on His Word?

Answer: When you meditate on God’s Word and it comes to life and transforms your thinking you start seeing yourself healed. And when you walk in this new truth you then start experiencing the manifestation of what it says.

Now, when I say ‘meditate’ I am referring to biblical meditation, and not that which is associated with Eastern philosophy or religions. In Hebrew the word meditate literally means to immerse your whole self in the truth of what God’s Word says by picturing, pondering, imagining, studying, and musing it over within your inner man, while also muttering, uttering and speaking this truth to yourself with the words of your mouth. Joshua was instructed not to let God’s Word depart from his mouth, but to meditate on it day and night so that he could observe himself doing all that it said. This was the key to how he would make his way prosperous and have good success (Josh 1:8 NKJV). Meditating on the Word therefore is not meant to be a one-off occurrence but rather it needs to be continued until revelation comes, and you see your circumstances through the eyes of what it says and not through what you see and experience in the natural realm.

Let me show you a truth in God’s Word to further explain what I mean:

My son, attend to my Words; consent and submit to my sayings [KJV says…incline your ear to My sayings].  Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the centre of your heart. For they are life to those who find themhealing and health to all their flesh.  Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. [NIV says…Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life]. Prov 4:20-23 (Amp)

I encourage you to read this passage in several different translations because it brings the meaning to life! You might have noticed that I have already included a couple for you. One of my favourite renderings is what the New Living Translation says:

My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

If we want to have Jesus abundant life and power (the ‘springs of life’) flowing out of our heart, affecting our body, our mind and also our outward circumstances, then we need to keep God’s Word before our eyes and ears by reading it, meditating upon it, hearing it preached, and hearing our own voice speaking it.

I have already shared in previous messages how God’s Word is alive and full of power (Heb 4:12). And how His Word comes to life is when it becomes living and active in us. Just think about it – when you keep meditating on God’s truth and it becomes alive and full of power in your spirit, it has to bring healing and health to your flesh!

The word health or healing in Proverbs 4:21 means cure or remedy. God’s Word is the cure or remedy, or in other words, the medicine we can take to receive healing in both our physical bodies and our outward circumstances! If you went to a medical doctor and he prescribed medication for you to take three times a day, would you take it? Of course you would. You would take it in faith expecting it to cure you. And since God’s power is greater than any worldly medicine, it will not only cure the symptoms, but can also bring healing to what was causing the condition in the first place.

Now that is Good News!
