“He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord” Psalms 113:9 KJV
I know a woman who delivered at the age of 59. This woman was attending a bible-believing church in the 80’s and married to a Pastor, yet no babies. She had 3 miscarriages and still births. She was not having problems from her husband’s family. Her problem was from her own family. They tried to take her to an herbalist. She told them categorically that it was against her Christian faith. They tried many ways to convince her but she insisted that she was not going anywhere. After many years of repeated failure, they went back to tell her that her God has failed. They reminded her that if her husband gets to 100 years, he can still marry and have a baby but for her the woman, there is a timing after which she can’t have a baby again. The woman stood her ground as a Christian. If God does not do it, let it be.
You must come to a point like that in your life, where you know it is either God or nothing else. Maybe, the reason why some people are yet to receive their miracle is that, they are having plan B. Along the line, her husband’s brother in the United States, who believed their challenge was stress-induced, invited the woman and her husband over to America for a period of time. So, for four months, they just relaxed and had fun. Yet nothing happened. They went to the best doctors around, nothing happened. Rather, they were told that her tube had been damaged as a result of some medication they were giving to her.
Eventually, one of her tubes was removed, and by this time, she could no more produce eggs. So they returned back to Nigeria and started looking unto Jesus: the Author and the Finisher of our faith. At the age of 52 without one tube and without ovulating she had her first baby. After that one, a baby girl. And as they kept on thanking God, a third child came when she was 59 years old. God turned her mess into a message. He will do same for you if you believe.
