Sing O Barren Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord. Isaiah 54:1.
One of the maxims learned growing up”You can’t be spank & prevented from crying” Crying was the expected response to correcting a child. Smiling or laughing in the face of obvious misdemeanor was considered rude and disrespectful. Life challenges for some attract similar response, the child in them emerges. Issues of barrenness is sensitive, crying is the norm, blame games are played. How can God do this to me? Sobbing, sadness, gloominess. God has never been the cause or source of Barrenness, he is the cure instead. His commandment is to sing o Barren! Sobbing replaced by singing. God is enough reason to sing, Salvation is the song of the redeemed. God is the father and founder of joy; joy is the highest faith. Sing your way to fruitfulness, it’s your access to the source.
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”Isaiah 12:2-3.
When joy is absent access to the wells of salvation is denied; dryness. Water is needed for anything to germinate, dryness and lack is the opposite. The wells of God are full of water, there is no lack or dryness in him. The desire & expectation is in him, the water from his wells is your source. Joy grants access, sadness denies access to these wells of salvation. God is the source of joy and giver of children. He is not the one chastising with barrenness; sing o barren, stop sobbing. Your cry cannot attract his attention but Joy grants access to the source. A song of praise is all you need to provoke fertility in every area of life. Those that sing never sink, the blessing of fertility is provoked with a song. Let the song begin! Sing your way to fruitfulness.
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.”Psalms 67:5-7.
