Ladies, we are made to birth/faith things. Our seedlings are what we are dreaming about. When a group of woman come together in unity and faith, something inside starts to incubate, grow and do things in our wombs.
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”
-Revelation 12:1-6 NKJV
I must give a second translation:
“Then an astonishing miracle-sign appeared in heaven. I saw a woman clothed with the brilliance of the sun, and the moon was under her feet. She was wearing on her head a victor’s crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in labor pains, in the agony of giving birth. Consider this: another astonishing miracle-sign appeared in heaven! I saw a huge, fiery-red dragon with ten horns and seven heads, each wearing a royal crown. He was wearing seven royal crowns. The dragon’s massive tail swept across the sky and dragged away a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon crouched before the woman who was about to give birth—poised to devour the baby the moment it was born. She gave birth to a man-child who is about to rule and shepherd every nation with an iron scepter, and her son was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness, where God had already prepared a safe place for her, and there they nourished her for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”
-Revelation 12:1-6 TPT
The enemy came for the woman in her most vulnerable position of giving birth. This is not just a natural perspective, but a spiritual one as well. We must guard our birthing-wombs (birthing rooms), ladies.
I was struck by the last verse of this passage, “The woman fled into the wilderness, where God had already prepared a safe place for her, and there they nourished her for one thousand two hundred and sixty days” (Revelation 12:6 TPT).
This link shows some pictures of what the wilderness terrain actually looks like:
I found this definition in this article above.
“Words translated as ‘wilderness’ occur nearly 300 times in the Bible. A formative Hebrew memory is the years of ‘wandering in the wilderness,’ mixing experiences of wild landscape, of searching for a promised land, and of encounters with God.
Wow, does any of that sound relevant to your current place and story? Searching for a better place, relationship, maybe even a reprieve from a difficult situation where you’re looking for a better place to land? When you find your safe place, an encounter with the Father is not far away.
May this spark something inside you. For, I desire to encourage and ignite as many women as God brings my way to help activate their faith to believe and dream beyond what is logical into something super-naturally possible. 💓
What are you blooming, and I hope it’s womby? 😉 I found this verse that I believe summarizes this whole thing so well. You can’t make these verses up. It’s in the Good Book. You just have to take a look:
“Out of your innermost being is flowing the fullness of my Spirit— never failing to satisfy. Within your womb there is a birthing of harvest wheat; they are the sons and daughters nurtured by the purity you impart. How gracious you have become!”
-Song of Songs 7:2-3 TPT
Ladies, we are made to birth/faith things. Our seedlings are what we are dreaming about. When a group of people come together in unity and faith, something inside starts to incubate and grow within our wombs into big beautiful fruitful blooms.
Until next time,
