In 2011, the Word of God that I had learned for years in The Way Ministry made it possible for my husband and me to start a family. We had tried for some time to become pregnant, and after more than a year it was recommended that we try in vitro fertilization, a process which can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. As we made our decision to pursue this route, God was right there, providing for our every need. God’s timing was such that I happened to be working for a company that covered 80% of the in vitro medications and procedures, making the process affordable when otherwise we could not have paid for it. Following the in vitro procedure, we received a call from our doctor warning us that our outcome looked bleak and that we should prepare ourselves for the very likely event that we would not become pregnant. It was a moment in which we needed to believe God and His Word. I remembered what this ministry had taught me about believing.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The Way Ministry taught me that faith, or believing, is the title deed to receiving what we want in life. What we believe for according to God’s Word is ours, even before we see it with our human eyes. This verse is what I clung to for ten days as we allowed the in vitro process to take effect and waited to find out if we were going to have a baby. The day I received the call from the doctor’s office to tell us we were pregnant is among the sweetest and most joyous times of my life. It was the Word I had been taught that gave me the strength, endurance, and peace I needed to believe for one of the greatest blessings I have ever received, the blessing of children.
