I have been so heartbroken about these issues of abortion in our country. I believe the Lord is declaring HOPE over the unborn & over our country. I created this picture to declare that with Him.
I declare these over the precious unborn babies God so eagerly wants to protect- for them to live and thrive:
PSALM 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge, his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
MALACHI 4:2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.
It’s been the main topic for weeks now…
We are seeing a pro-life movement like never before as a result of the horrific bills that have been passed like in New York & other states that are attempting to follow. Sadly, many Christians have been asleep to this issue and many others like it- and have been silent.
The result of our silence is that meanwhile many innocent lives have been lost. We have been afraid and timid at the thought of speaking up and being active because there’s this spirit of offense in our country. This spirit has caused us to be silent on matters like this because we don’t want to offend anyone or sound overly religious or [insert excuse here].
But we are called to this. We are called to the uncomfortable. We are a light on a stand. We are a city on a hill. We are not to stay hidden. We will be hated for speaking truth in love!! We will be a stench to those who are perishing. But we are also His fragrance! (2 Cor 2:15)
We need to step past the discomfort & speak truth. Those who do not have a voice to speak for themselves need us to speak. And even if it saves ONE life- it will all have been worth it! I pray and hope that abortion will be completely abolished. I will not give up hope & neither should you. I imagine the entire army of Israelites facing Goliath felt this type of temptation to be utterly hopeless and terrified to speak against the slanderous things he was saying about our God. I imagine they felt small, and defeated. But we are not those men. We are His beloved. We are Davids. We are MORE then champions. They don’t know the God that is on our side- but they will know! They will see. They will witness our victory. But we can not continue to sit around waiting for a David to come along- when WE. ARE. IT.
There are many ways to be effective in this pro- life fight we are engaged in.
-Our core motive MUST be LOVE!
-INTERCEDE! We need intercessors to pray and fast. We need mountain movers. We need to speak life over the unborn & we need to declare truth over this situation. Start a prayer chain. Start a prayer group. Prayer is powerful!
-VOLUNTEER and support a local pregnancy crisis center. You will see on their websites that they do not perform or support abortion but will educate on the matter. They support women with health care and counseling with alternative options.
– GET INVOLVED in your local pro-life groups on Facebook. And share info to help draw in more pro-lifers.
– sidewalk counseling near your local planned Parenthood. Just be love. Offer prayer. Speak comfort & hope.
-put up info on bulletin boards around town at coffee shops and library for ALTERNATIVE options… promoting your local alternative pregnancy crisis centers.
– write beautiful letters of hope & purpose for the unborn & their mothers… place them around the planned parenthood’s & wherever God leads you.
-JOIN your local pro-life rallies
-support the new movie by Abby Johnson that is coming to theaters called “Unplanned”… buy weekend tickets for people and hand them out near planned Parenthood. Hey it’s worth a shot.
-even ADOPT if you can & God is calling you to do this.
Please comment and add other ideas on how to get involved & speak up for the unborn.
