Great miracles don't always happen in the open. Jesus, the Son of the God of Glory was conceived in the hidden place of the womb. This divine miracle happened in "the secret place" which is a term God uses for the womb (Psalm 139:15).
The angel Gabriel told Mary that the Holy Ghost would come upon her and "thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS" (Luke 1:31). Although this conception was hidden, Jesus came forth to be revealed to the world as Savior and Deliverer.
It is the same with every conception. It doesn't take place in the open for everyone to see. God's handiwork (for only God gives conception) takes place in the in the womb, the hidden part of the woman. But, this miracle doesn't stay hidden. Children one day come forth from the home to be the bearers of God's image in the earth.
In Psalm 128:3 (NHEB) God gives the picture of the wife in the heart of the home: “Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of your house; your children like olive plants, around your table.” The Hebrew word used is “yrekah” and means “the recesses, the inner part.”
The amazing revelation is that God uses this same word “yrekah” that He uses to describe the wife and mother in the home for the Holy of Holies, the place where God dwelt in His Shekinah glory above the ark of the covenant. In fact, He is called “The ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims” (2 Samuel 6:2).
This is just too incredible. In 1 Kings 6:16 (NLT) it says that Solomon “partitioned off an inner sanctuary (yrekah)—the Most Holy Place—at the far end of the Temple.” It was at the far end, the inner part, the protected and hidden part of the temple.
Satan has filled the women of our generation with blatant lies. Through feminism, humanism, and progressivism women have been brainwashed that home and motherhood are insignificant. The opposite is true. The mother in the home dwells in all her glory, the glory that God has divinely given to her.
Home and motherhood are the glory of the nation.
