Worry and anxiety can lead to infertility by shutting down the body’s system and causing it not to function properly.
During my years of working with couples facing infertility I discovered that many couples who faced infertility were victims of worry, anxiety, and unforgiveness. I always deal with these issues first before anything else.
WHY? Because God did not design our body system for worry. The Bible tells us to: cast all our cares and anxiety on the Lord because he cares for us. (I Peter 5: 7). Worry can do you more damage than good.
The Lord Jesus Christ asked us this question: ‘Which of you by worrying can add a single hair to his life?’ I want to ask you a question – how will your worrying produce that child which you desire?
Many couples reading this article can testify that their worrying about this problem has not in any way helped them. The Bible says that, ‘A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body.’ (Proverbs 14: 30)
The Bible says: ‘A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.’
Just from these two Bible passages you can see that worry destroys the body system. A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body.
So when worry sets in, it starts to destroy the life of the body. It releases toxins into the body. Worry breeds more worry until one is almost going out of one’s mind because of it. The Bible says that it breaks the spirit.
Once a man’s spirit is broken he is finished. The body becomes weak. The mind starts to play games. The body system becomes clogged up, and many organs in the body are affected.
But God has a solution. Jesus says we should cast all our problems on him because he cares. But most of the time we do not know how to cast our burdens on the Lord, so we keep on carrying it.
This should not be so. Today we will pray and ask God for the strength to cast our cares upon him, because we believe that he really cares for us.
The Holy Spirit told me that worry and anxiety lead to infertility because the body system is not relaxed and a baby needs a relaxed atmosphere to implant itself in the womb.
Please stop worrying and cast all your cares upon the Lord. God really cares for you and will surely bless you if you stop worrying and trust Him for all your needs.
Now say a prayer:
I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. From today I choose not to worry any more.
Now say to Him, Lord you said I should not worry about my life, what I will eat; or about my body, what I will wear. From today I make up my mind not to worry any more about infertility. I ask you ,Oh God to bless me now with a child of my own, so that my joy will be full. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. Today I shout for joy. I say the Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Saviour! For I know for sure that I am blessed and soon I will carry my own child in my own arms in Jesus name. Amen.
