Isaiah 54:1-3 – 54 “Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. 2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.
Not everyone gets the opportunity to be a parent. Whether by choice or health related issue, some do not birth and raise a child. This can be a very painful season in their life as they look at those around them as they raise children.
Today’s scripture is meant to be a message of hope. No, we might not all get to be a birth parent, but God’s Word reminds us that “You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman” . May the Lord use you to be a parent figure to “the children of the desolate“. You can and will be “A Parent to Many”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
