Are my struggles with infertility and miscarriage a curse from God?
The short and simple answer is emphatically “No!”
Infertility and miscarriage are NOT a curse from God!
We must always remember that from the beginning of time , God’s plan for ALL of His creation was fruitfulness!
God created and commanded mankind to be fruitful.
As we can see in Genesis 1:26-28 God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
There are some verses in the Old Testament that on the surface look like barrenness came from the hand of God BUT when you understand how the Old Testament was written and what was happening at the time then these verses can be explained and rightly divided. However, its not necessary to cover this here because the reality is we are under a better Covenant based upon better promises which CANNOT be broken. Our New Covenant was made between God and His son, Jesus and it has ALREADY been ESTABLISHED for us! God cannot block, alter, withdraw or delay what He has already freely provided!
This is the GOOD NEWS of the New Covenant! So this means what Jesus purchased for us on the Cross is already freely available to all who believe in Him.
So why do we still suffer?
The simple truth is that infertility and miscarriage and whatever causes these are different forms of sickness, disease or complications that occur in the mother, father or unborn baby. These are not from God! Romans 5:12 tells us that death entered through sin. The answer is clear – all forms of death came in at the Fall. One of the reasons why we may suffer today is because we live in a fallen world and we live with fallen men who don’t listen to God or respond in love etc. There is also an adversary. BUT once again stick to your New Covenant because Jesus has ALREADY paid the price for sin and its consequences on the Cross.
Psalm 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The PROVISION for healing of ALL FORMS of sickness and disease has already been made available because God and Jesus have already finished the work for us. They are both seated and resting from their redemptive work. NOW it is time for us to renew our minds with who we are IN HIM and what we have already inherited so we can seek God on revelation knowledge on how to PARTAKE to see this outworking in our lives.
Fix your eyes on Jesus!
Whenever you read the Bible and want to apply it to your circumstances today ALWAYS filter what you read through your New Covenant and the finished work of Jesus. That is our position today and what we have available to us. I personally believe that what we have in Him is enough for us to experience a breakthrough in any area of our lives.
Jesus is God’s answer to the Fall and to how to overcome what we now experience while living in a fallen world!
Another reason why we suffer in this and other areas of life is because we lack knowledge and understanding. If we don’t know God has already provided the answer for us then we won’t know how to partake in it with boldness. Unfortunately what is commonly taught is from peoples’ personal experiences. We have 101 traditions and doctrines of men and reasons formed from our own understanding on how God works or doesn’t work today. Most of which undermine Jesus and His finished work in our lives. So if you want the truth to be established in your heart and minds then stick to Jesus and continue to meditate only upon what you have in your New Covenant with Him!

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!
