God’s Promises to Mothers, Part 1: Protection

For You From The Word

He gently leads those that are with young. (Isaiah 40:11, NLV)

For You To Think About

The prophet Isaiah describes our Lord’s relationship with His people as a shepherd with His sheep. In particular, he singles out mothers.

Therein lay one of God’s special promises to mothers and mothers-to-be: “He gently leads those that are with young” (Isaiah 40:11).

When you’re led by another person, He goes first. A mother can take great comfort in knowing God goes before her to pave the way in her pregnancy and motherhood.

The term as it is used here also implies sustenance. As God gently leads a mother along her parenting journey (whether that journey involves roles as natural mother, birth mother, adoptive mother, or step mother), He promises to guide her, protect her, and carry her … even if times are hard.

A woman carrying child often feels vulnerable. God promises to protect her.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for Your specific promises to mothers. You will never leave them nor forsake them. Allow mothers and mothers-to-be to know Your protection this day.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
