Psalm 127:3 states “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward.” Both of these phrases in this verse prove that a “Baby” comes directly from the God of Heaven and that the Heavenly Father bestows upon Parents a heavenly gift from above, their baby.
The word “Heritage” has a meaning that gives that proves that all children are God's children as well as direct predetermined gift from above to parents. Jeremiah 1:5, there is evidence of this when the Word of God speaks of the Prophet Jeremiah before his birth; “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto nations.” God in all His Omniscience (knowledge) knew what parents Jeremiah was going to be born to, when he was going to be born, and what purpose he was to have in his life. We can learn from this verse that God in His Omniscience knows every child that will be born, to whom they will be born to, and what purpose they will have in life. The baby that is born is the “Heritage” of the Lord.
The phrase: “The fruit of the womb” gives a clear proof that the Heavenly Father through His omnipotent power allows the womb of the woman to be opened at the right time for the baby to be conceived. Evidence of this is found in Genesis 29:31, this verse speaks of Leah and Rachel, “And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, He opened her womb: but Rachel was barren (The Lord closed her womb).” Other verses in the Word of God that shows His omnipotent power over the womb are Genesis 30:22, “And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her and opened her womb”; 1 Samuel 1:5 speaking of Hannah, “... the Lord had shut up her womb”; 1 Samuel 1:19 – 20 “... the Lord remembered her …. after Hannah had conceived.” These verses are just a few places that show God's omnipotent power over the womb and the conception of a baby. The baby is “the fruit of the womb” that begins at conception.
“The fruit of the womb is His Reward” The reward or gift of the womb is the child that is born to the Parents. Psalm 139:13 – 16, David gives Praise to the Heavenly Father who watched over him, protected him, and even wrote all of his members (each body part) in a book while in his mother's womb. “For Thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” When babies are conceived in the womb, this is the beginning of our Heavenly Father miraculous creation and handiwork as the baby begins to develop. After about nine months of The Heavenly Father using the womb of the mother to nurture, protect, and care for the baby; the “reward” or gift of the Heavenly Father is born to the parents. Therefore, Babies are God's Divine creation given to parents as a reward or gift.
In conclusion; and the proof has been given, Babies are truly a divine Gift from the Heavenly Father which He bestows upon Parents and gives them the responsibility of raising that baby for Him. Praise the Lord today if He has counted you worthy to give you the gift of life, your baby.
