“And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. (Revelation 12:2)”. What has God birth in you? Why are you here? Who are you here for? Is it car, a job, some money, friends? God has given you a dream and vision that is far above anything in this earth. However getting the vision to reality will cause birthing pains. The pain of frustration, hurt, and delay will sneak upon you as you begin to take on the task of accomplishing your God given mission.
Your life on earth is to accomplish the mission that God has given you. You are on earth for ministry. The word, “ministry” is usually reserved for someone in religious duties. Ministry is not just word for the religious. It is a word that anyone can use. Service, helping, aiding, teaching, and assisting are all examples of ministry. There are different professions that provide ministry every day. For example, teachers provide ministry by educating. Lawyers provide ministry by assisting those who are less fortunate. Engineers provide ministry by creating, designing, and manufacturing ideas and concepts for people that will enhance their quality of life. So ministry is more than a religious duty; it is a way of life. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)”.
Birthing is directed to a solution to solve a problem. It was said that Thomas Edison experimented with over 3000 filament before he invented the light bulb. The pain of frustration, lack, hurt will come but know that if you are walking in the promise when you will be delivered from your pain

Remember the end result of birthing is to a solution not to a problem.
