Stand and birth!
Having done all to stand. Stand therefore. Ephesians 6:13-14
What do you when you feel like you have given your all in a situation but it still "appears" to not be improving? When you have given a situation every ounce of your blood, sweat, and tears then you just need to stand. It is at this point that God is about to step in, take over, and birth the promise that He wants to bring forth in your life! This period of utter exhaustion can be compared to the last phase of labor when a new life is about to be birthed. The last phase of labor that you or someone you know may be in when it seems like a situation is not improving and that you have given it your all is transitional (or advanced) labor. According to the What to Expect website, the last stage of labor "is a physically demanding and draining time and you may feel exhausted, FRUSTRATED, IMPATIENT, and overwhelmed. Hang in there, though - soon, you and your newborn will be meeting face to face."
We must realize what is going on in the spiritual realm in terms of the promises of God being birthed in our lives when we experience intense pain and challenges. Remember that nothing can stop the birthing process once it starts. Similarly, your mistakes or failures will not stop the promises of God from being birthed in your life! Don't try to figure out exactly how God will birth His promises in your life. A woman may not understand exactly every aspect of how a baby is delivered from the uterus and down the birth canal, but her lack of understanding does not stop the birth from taking place. Don't try to escape the pain of labor because a delivery is about to take place and a new beginning is about to come forth. Remember that God says, "Behold I make all things new" (Revelation 21:5). Simply stand and allow God to birth His promises in your life!
