Spiritual birthing is an interesting concept that many of us do not understand. It comes from the Holy Spirit and is designed to bring spiritual things into the natural. Right now in the natural many of us are focused on the factions taking place, overwhelming deception, and extreme uncertainties. Everything that previous appeared stable is shaking. Yet in the spiritual realm, I sense something new is taking place. Romans 8:19 says “The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.” I believe God is birthing sons and daughters into true maturity that will result in true fruit.
Just as in natural birth, there is a process that takes place. It takes time for the growth of a baby within a woman. It also takes time for the joining of the seed of what God wants to impregnate us spiritually with. Spiritual birthing is to be inspired, saturated with, or become pregnant with the heart of God for your life and assignment. This birthing has the intent of creating an all in effect for the Lord. No more fence sitting will be allowed. The new thing God is doing right now is calling his people back into relationship with him. Many who have simply voiced a knowledge about him will now recognize they cannot have one foot into the kingdom and one foot into the world. Defining moments are occurring for many knowing that there are only two options – enter the kingdom of God fully or remain in the world.
Spiritual birthing is giving birth to new revelations we receive, visions, or assignments. It can be a burning that is igniting within our hearts, knowledge springing up that causes us to change or transform our very walk. The church will no longer look the same as new lives spring forth in power and authority, true sons and daughters of the kingdom of God.
Birthing pains is the manifestation of the Holy Spirit desiring the coming forth of those greater things God spoke about in John 14:12. “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” Get ready for greater things to be accomplished through you.
There is always pain involved during the birthing process but there is also a pushing that is required. Only God knows how much pushing is needed in order to birth his plan or that new thing in our lives. It is our job to push until it comes forth. It may not look like what we expected but when it is of God, it is perfect for us. Now is the time to see, ask and push for your new thing.
