Pregnancy can be the most exciting, yet equally terrifying event in a woman's life! After reading Supernatural Childbirth, by Jackie Mize, I was inspired to believe that God had amazing plans for me AND my birth experience! Instead of pain, I expected peace. Instead of fear, I trusted God would surround and empower me. God has done amazing things throughout all of my births, and I share my supernatural childbirth testimonies here! I wrote Re:Birth to inspire other mother's to apply their faith to their births, and open the book with the following letter. I hope it encourages you!
Do not worry; you were created to be a mom! If you have not conceived yet, God has a wonderful plan. After all, it was God’s idea to have children in the beginning. He is not hiding that blessing from you. God has been present at every birth in history, and He cannot wait to be a part of yours!
You might feel powerless in the midst of the changes that surround you, but do not be deceived; God has given you more power than you know. God’s dominion rests on His children, and that intimidates Satan. Satan may try to make you feel like a victim of pregnancy symptoms or fill you with a fear of birth, but do not worry. God has a better plan. It will take faith to bring what is in Heaven down to earth, but it has been done many times before and will be done again.
Remember, Jesus took the punishment for sin. That means that when you belong to Him, God will never try to punish you for sins or Eve’s sin. God is not causing pain, sickness or disease; instead, He paid the highest price for our healing and redemption. Satan is causing chaos and trying to place the blame on God; it is time for that to end.
Through Jesus’s sacrifice, our lives radically change and so can birth. Pregnancy was created to multiply God’s image and love, but the fall of man distorted those things. Let’s re-examine birth in the Bible through the lens of the completed sacrifice at Cavalry and search for God’s heart in it together.
