You are created to be Fruitful by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Dear Reader,

I want you to know that God has designed your marriage for fruitfulness. Fruitfulness should be natural to man, but when you are resisted by hell, you need an understanding of God’s provision for your fruitfulness in marriage to combat the enemy. Throughout this month, I shall be talking to you about what I titled You are Created to be Fruitful.

Today, I shall be examining fruitfulness as part of God’s plan for your marriage. With the same breath that God called forth light, and it came to be, He also made man to be fruitful. The Word of God says: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:28). That was not an admonition, but a commandment. God did not say, “You may be fruitful”, but “Be fruitful!”

Never mind whatever contrary report you may be holding in your hands now. Remember, everything God said when He was creating the world came to be. Therefore, it is impossible for what God has said concerning you and your home to fail. The counsel of the Lord stands forever. The Word of God says: The counsel of the Lord standeth forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations (Psalm 33:11).

So, when He said to you, “Be fruitful,” you must be fruitful. This is a commandment from God. It is neither a suggestion nor admonition. He that said, “Let there be light” and it was so, is the same ONE that gave this commandment. In your body, He said, “Be fruitful’” Have you ever considered that if God wanted, He could have been creating more and more people to fill the whole earth just the way He created Adam?

God is all-powerful and Omnipotent. He can do just anything, but He gave man the assignment of procreation. He is the all-wise God. He knows what He is doing. If He didn’t put the power to conceive and bring forth there, He won’t be asking you and me to do it.

Therefore, for every male and female creature of God, who has come together in holy wedlock, the injunction of their Creator is to ‘be fruitful’. If there is anything short of this, it is not God. He can never change His Word. The Word of God says: I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything was taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him (Ecclesiastes 3:14). So, since God has said to you, “Be fruitful”, blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, or any such thing cannot stop that Word from coming to pass in your life.

Barrenness is not of God, and should not be seen as a lesson or punishment from God. God tempts no man with evil. If there is anything like that, it is of the devil. Remember, the devil is the thief who has come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). If you are married, and reading this article and you are expecting the fruit of the womb, know that God is much interested in your fruitfulness.

For instance, you have been married for a few years now, and you are running out of patience with God, or maybe, there are even some mockers around you saying it to your hearing that you are papa or mama ‘nobody’. Rejoice and be glad. Why? The will of your heavenly Father is that you are fruitful, and the Word of God says: For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). God will not ask you to come back tomorrow for this good thing, He will give it to you right away. It is in His power to give you and He will surely give it to you NOW. This is your hour!

God has made known His will to you. Who can debar Him from doing His will? Who can turn His hand back? What kind of medical report can annul what the Almighty Himself says? Whose report will you then believe? Relax and come to your senses. Stop panicking and running helter-skelter. Stop cursing and abusing your mockers. Stop spending your fortune looking for a man-made-god-given-children. Stop frustrating your life.

Be at peace with yourself and with your God and let His Word come to pass in your life. God’s Word says: Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward (Psalm 127:3). As long as you are a child of God, you are entitled to the blessing of children. No matter what the doctors have diagnosed as being responsible, God is greater than man’s report. Below is a testimony of a miracle baby, despite all odds.

“I got married in April 1998, and expected to have my baby immediately, but nothing happened. I went to the hospital after I lost a pregnancy, and the doctor told me I had fibroid and that I needed to undergo an operation, after which I could get pregnant.

But I didn’t believe the doctor’s report. Instead, I started praising God and forgot about the report. During Victory Celebration ’98, the Bishop prophesied that we would get pregnant. Before then, my period had always been 21 days and comes with a heavy flow. My period started on the first day of the Victory Celebration and the flow was reduced and soon became normal. In December, I discovered I was pregnant. My baby was one month old on September 17, 1999!” – Adegbeli, F. (Mrs.)

I see God giving you your own testimony!

Giving your life to Jesus Christ is the gateway to fruitfulness because children are the heritage of the Lord. Do you want to be born again so you can have all it takes to be fruitful? If you would want to give your life to Christ, you can say this prayer of faith:

Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.

Congratulations! You are now born-again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through, and; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
