Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;
break forth into singing and cry aloud,
you who have not been in labor!
For the children of the desolate one will be more
than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord.
If you're a nobody, if you seem to be going nowhere, if nothing seems to work; then celebrate.
Human nature celebrates human ingenuity, born winners. But God likes to take "failures" and make then fruitful.
This verse is spoken to the people of God in transition. God is saying, be encouraged, it's a new beginning time and I've got great plans for you. This word is spoken to people who want God's best for themselves and it hasn't worked out. They are discouraged. Did you know that God not only has plan B when plan A doesn't work out, but he also has plan C, D, E, F; and on and on. God is not a perfectionist. God is not discouraged when we fail or when others fail us. God doesn't pack up and go home when the enemy wins a round in our lives. So, worship God!
