Almost everyone I know personally would say that they are pro-life. What most people mean when they say that is that they are anti-abortion, meaning they think it is wrong to destroy a life that has been conceived. I have known many people who believe that, and yet they are not quite pro-life.
Of whom do I speak? Of those women who say it is their right to close their own womb.
"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb."
Our Creator fashioned a beautiful plan called the family. One man and one woman unite in a unique, holy, spiritual and physical union that God blesses and said from the beginning that it is good. The natural blessing of that union is children, which are to be received with thanksgiving and love, as gifts from God. Why then do we turn away His blessings, taking the reins in our own hands? By doing so, we not only insult the Creator, but we deny ourselves the blessings that He would bestow upon us.
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
Who is it that is the Giver of Life? It is the Lord. How often does He want to give new life to the family He wants to bless? If we will take our controls off the womb, we will find out what His will is. But it has even been declared "irresponsible" to have more than -x- number of children. Does that attitude come from God?
"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Why is it that we can trust Him for our salvation, but we can't trust Him to form our families? Do we know what is best, better than our Creator does? Of course not. Then why do we wrest from His creative hands the right to create a life? We have become arrogant and self-serving. We block the womb, and then dare God to work a miracle if He wants us to have another child. What wickedness!
"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:"
Satan has attacked the very cradle of life: the woman's body. He has whispered a lie in her ear that it's her body, and she believed the lie. This one lie has led to both abortion and to birth control. Why is Satan concerned with the fruit of the womb?
"As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth."
Children, raised up in a loving, godly home, are the offensive weapons against Satan! Open your eyes, Christians!
"Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
