by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men “Biblical Fathers Have All The Children God Wants Them To Have” - April 25, 2013
On this point the majority of the Christian churches have been greatly deceived. Most Christian couples have little understanding of the importance of God being in charge of this area of their lives. They consult God on their career, college, home, finance, and many seemingly important issues, yet regarding children created in God’s own image, they don’t want God involved. This is one area where most Christians make their own decision.
What would have happened to God’s promise to Abraham’s descendants that they would be as the “dust of the earth, the sand of the seashore, and the stars of the heaven”* for multitude, if he had decided to take the lordship away from God to give him the children God wanted him and Sarah to have? I think you will agree with me that having children is more important to God for the multiplication of His image and all that He represents than all these other things that we seek Him for. I have come to believe that it is God’s image and likeness that is at stake and on the line. For righteousness’ sake, we had better not take this matter lightly or casually, for God does not.
