THE DELIVERY ROOM

Updated: Aug 1, 2023


The Delivery Room

What are our expectations as we close our prayers? Where do we go or what do we do after we have spent time in our Prayer Room? Do we scurry along and continue our daily tasks? Do we continue to worry about what we prayed for? Or do we get impatient and try to fix the concerns ourselves without waiting for God’s direction?

I liken the Prayer Room to a Labor Room. A lot of our prayers are invoked by the painful things that we are going through. As we experience our contractions (some of which last longer and are more painful than others) we cry out. As our contractions get closer, our breakthrough (water breaks) gets closer. At that point, we are prepped for delivery. That is when we must enter the Delivery Room

With that same concept in mind, we have a Prayer Room, but do we have a Delivery Room? Do we have a place set aside to praise God for the answers that are on the way? Do we have a place where we can sit quietly and listen for the voice of God to ensure that we can hear the answers to our prayers? When we pray, we pray with anticipation of an answer. Sometimes we get too busy to hear the answer.

During these modern times, when it is time for delivery, the Labor Room is transformed into a Delivery Room. So, we must prepare our Delivery Room to give birth to the answers to our prayers. Our Delivery Room can be a totally different room, or we can transform our Prayer Room into our Delivery Room in anticipation. The preparation of a Delivery Room is an act of FAITH. Let’s exercise our FAITH and prepare our Delivery Room.

God will surely deliver. Psalm 50:15, ESV reads. "And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me." According to this verse, not only should our Delivery Room be a place where we can hear God speaking our answer to our prayers, it should also be our place of continuous praise.

Our mindset in our Delivery Room should be just as it reads in Genesis 49:18, “I look for your deliverance, Lord. And, just as Moses in Exodus 14:13a when he answered the people, Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today”. Lest we forget Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2:1, “My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance. Hannah used her horn and her voice to praise God for His deliverance. As Hannah did, let’s use our voices and talents to praise God for being a Deliverer.

We can stand firm on the multiple promises of God to deliver us because He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. His words are true! Here are just a few verses of God’s promises to deliver us.


2 Samuel 22:2

He said "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer."


Psalm 34:4

"I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all of my fears."

Psalm 34:17

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles."


Psalm 107:6

"Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress."


Prepare your Delivery Room and get ready for your deliverance all the while praising God in advance. (Your Delivery Room can be transformed back to your Labor/Prayer Room as needed). The delivery is on the horizon. Meet God in your Delivery Room prepped and ready for the answer.

Keep a log of your deliverances so that you will not forget how good God is and how many times He has our prayers and delivered us. Decorate your Prayer/Labor/Delivery Room with all the times God delivered you. Write it down, make it plain. Stamp “Delivered” on your answered prayers.

BE ENCOURAGED

I really enjoyed reading The Delivery Room. As a woman who has never given birth nor been pregnant, I really appreciate the comparison of the physical delivery room of childbirth and the spiritual delivery room of answered prayers. Most mornings in my "Labor Room" once I finish praying to start the rest of my day, I ask God to speak to my heart throughout the day, because a lot of times I am in too much of a rush to wait on the answer from the "Delivery Room" at that moment.
