Question of the Day

When Kenneth and Gloria started their journey of faith they had question too - lots of them! So, we've compiled the most frequent asked questions by people like you - people who earnestly desire to find God's answers to the practical, real-life challenges of everyday living. We have a new question every day, so check back often.

Q: We hoped and prayed to have children for years, but remain childless. Is it not God's will for us?

A: It is never wrong to believe God for something He has already promised. And His promises concerning children are spelled out clearly in His Word. For example, in Psalm 127:3, the Scripture says that “children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”

Psalm 113:9 says, “He makes the barren woman a keeper of the house and a joyful mother of children.” And Exodus 23:26 promises that “none shall lose her young by miscarriage or be barren in your land.”

God’s Word always reveals His will, and as you make these scriptures part of your prayer life, you can pray confidently for a child of your own. For we are assured in 1 John 5:14-15 that “if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
