God hovers over motherhood. He is with you from the beginning to the end. Are you waiting to give birth to a baby soon? God will be with you in your birth. David confesses in Psalm 22:9: “Thou art He that took me out of the womb.” Or modern translations say, “You brought me safely from my mother’s womb.” Whether you are having your baby at home or in a hospital, put your trust in God. He is the one who brings the baby safely from the womb. He is hovering over you for the life of your baby.
When the baby is born the very precious awareness of the presence of God comes to your home. It always comes with a new baby who arrives fresh from heaven. I reveled in this time when my babies came. Savor every moment of it.
David continues: “Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.” As the little babe nurses at the continually-available breasts of the mother, he learns that he can totally trust God. As the breast is always accessible, so he learns that God, Jehovah Shamah, will always be there for him.
Another Psalmist confesses the same thing as David: “Upon Thee I have leaned from birth; it was Thou who took me from the maternal womb. My praise is continually of thee” (Psalm 71:6 MLB). Dear mother, God watches over every aspect and every season of motherhood. You are not doing it on your own. He is with you.
Trust Him hourly and daily.
