Loving Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus. This about a creative
miracle that God has done our lives.
I am Allen, my wife is Sobha. We got married in early 1996. God had blessed us with everything, except child. So our life was in sorrow and tears. Our parents worried more than us. We were all praying for the blessing.
We had gone to several doctors and under gone different kinds of treatments. They said it is impossible to get a child in natural method and very difficult to get in artificial methods. Doctors tried with artificial methods, but everything failed. We changed doctors one after the other, after hearing negative reply from them.
Some Doctors told, the only alternative is to go for some manipulative method. We did not agree to their methods, because we know it is not right thing in the sight of God. We believed God would give us our own child.
Finally we went to on of the famous infertility doctor in India, at Mumbai. She was the only doctor at least gave some hope. She also tried all her known methods. She tried with all latest and expensive treatment methods available in medical science for infertility. But everything failed. All human engineering methods failed. So we were in hopeless state, disappointed & broken hearted.
Some of our friends promised, that we will get child if we go to some Hindu temples. They named some temples and asked us to go and pray from there. We simply rejected their suggestions, saying that we trust in our Lord the maker of heavens & earth and He will give us a child, in His time. Even if we are not getting child, we will not come to other God's for help, because we know who our God is. Because Bible says, Ex:20:3: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Ex:20:5: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor worship them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God.
Some of my friends even suggested to try black magic (witch-craft methods). They told me it will solve all our problems. I simply rejected their suggestion, saying that it is against our Christian faith. Bible Says, De:18:10: There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, De:18:11: Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. De:18:12: For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD
But we had a deep sorrow/sadness in our heart while thinking about our future. Whenever somebody give testimony about what god has done in their life, I used to pray, "Lord let me be the next testimony".
In the mean time we stopped all treatments and medications from last January, after frustrated by the failures of all medical treatments.
At this hope less stage, I requested you to pray for us. You prayed for us and also encouraged us through the word of God.
I used to pray silently, "Lord!, now this is your time. Doctors tried and failed. Now you can do miracle a miracle in our life and glorify your name.
Hallelujah! He heard our prayer. Yes. He did a miracle while we were in a hopeless stage. The Lord who hears the cry of the barren one, answered our prayer. He is the living God who heals the wounds of the broken hearted.
Sobha went to the doctor for checkup after 5 months gap, in May, to the same doctor who had done earlier expensive and latest infertility treatments. She enquired Sobha, why you did not come for the last six months. She did sono-graphy test and surprised to see the fetus. The Doctor said, Sobha, When I see this, I feel man is nothing in front of God. God is great. These are questions unanswered in medical science. A Hindu heathen doctor said this. Sobha became pregnant. Glory to God.
Yes for man it was impossible, but for God everything is possible. M'r:10:27: With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. Luk:1:37: For nothing is impossible with God.
Later, when Sobha went to Hospital for her regular checkups, Doctors cautioned her, that the baby may come with deficiency/syndrome, because she is going to give birth after five years and also, since she had taken treatments in the earlier stages. Also Doctors suggested to opt caesarian for delivery and not to opt normal delivery. They said, medical reasons for that. But we believed in God, because He only did this creative miracle possible, and not the Doctors. We believed in the verse: Jas:1:17: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Yesterday, on 6th February, Sobha delivered a baby. It was a normal delivery. I have become father. Sobha and my son are in good health. Sobha will be discharged from the Hospital tomorrow. My parents and Sobha's parents are very happy and are in tears of joy.
He changed the tears of our sorrow in to tears of joy. He changed the mess of life in to a message.
Bible Says. Proverb:13:12: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Psalms:113:9: He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
This is Gods blessing which came through our combined prayers. You prayed for us. Thank you for your prayers and encouragements. Now you can rejoice, because God has answered your prayer. God will Bless You abundantly.
All honor, power & glory to our almighty Jehovah God.
With heart full of Thanks.
My name is Allen (30). My wife is Sobha (30). We have got married four years back (30/4/1986) and have no child. Kindly pray for us fervently until I send you a testimony letter to you, about this blessing in our life. Please send us your reply. God Bless You. Allen & Sobha
