One of the positions I have held was a Director for our local Pregnancy Care Centre. In this line of work, I often came across women who had abortions. And for those who desired they attended a bible study specifically for those who experienced abortion. This was one of the highlights of my time as Director because I saw the Lord heal and set free all of them! The bible study book we used is appropriately called: Forgiven and Set Free.
I pray that those who have had abortions would lend me their ear for some very life-changing information.
I will tell anyone who has had an abortion, you will never be able to sweep it under the rug no matter how good you are at denying it. I can say this with the confidence of God as my witness. Unless you acknowledge to yourself and God that you broke the 6th commandment you will remain bound in the curse it brings. I can tell you that each woman I met had one common trait about them. They were restless. They could not settle, and could not attain contentment, happiness, or love. Some were lost in addiction or seemed to be magnets for bad relationships while others looked like they had it all together.
I would like to talk to you, who has had an abortion. Hear me out, please.
Your freedom hinges on you coming clean to Him and confessing what you have done and acknowledging you have sinned.
You sinned against yourself, your child, and God. This is the truth that has to be brought to light. The shame of abortion is like an invisible weight that keeps you from finding relief. You cannot find peace until You bring the Prince of Peace into that locked room in your heart. The good news is that Jesus has paid the price for your sin and so just bring it to the cross!
This curse that is over you, was pronounced upon Cain for murdering his brother:
The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.”
Only if you are honest before God will you find the forgivenss and be set free from this sin. It is a road that you commit to go, where you continue to seek His wisdom for there is more healing to come.
I encourage anyone who is struggling in this area, and who desires to step out to obtain healing who needs support to contact your local Pregnancy care center and you can certainly contact me. I pray for you. Amen.
