SPIRITUAL INSIGHT INTO INFERTILITY
Most of the time I like to remain secular in things of religion and medical practice. Maybe I was inspired more to write on it because of my last Friday’s attendance of a super praise night at the church were I must confess the spirit really moved me big time.
In my over 17years of practice I have been hearing many stories from my clients about the effect of evil forces on their fertility, and how it can be causing them the lose of many pregnancies or have left them impotent.
Recently a very close friend of mine who is a consultant in medicine for over a decade had a serious heart condition that almost cost him his life, he is not one to believe so much in spiritual matters, until the condition got out of hand, he was advised by family members to seek spiritual help. It was after consulting a minister, and was offered prayers, before his condition was adequately diagnosed in India and he went through a successful surgery.
Many of us who have spent most of our lives as born again christians and have always been under the protection of God have taken the attacks of the evil ones and his agents for granted. I gave my life to God in the early 1990’s and have remained a believer since then, though I have fought many battles since then and overcame through the Grace of God. So I always believe everyone should be able to overcome and that the effects of the evil one and his agents should be null and void, but of course I am wrong, because a lot of people are really under these attacks especially in area of fertility, it is very serious.
Recently I had this very good client of mine who have been suffering from infertility for a long time, she is just in her early forties and her menstrual periods have stopped for over 2 years now. I have attended to this type of cases many times but I have never thought of any spiritual explanations to it, until she gave me this story, she told me that her menses had been coming normally until one day she slept and had a terrible dream, where two women were pouring out her kegs of oil until they emptied it out,
She woke up that morning to have the heaviest and longest menstruation of her life. After that she stopped seeing her periods for almost two years (menopause), imagine that, naturally as believer we know the interpretation of that dream, simple, she has been attacked by witches.
I have this male patient who has been suffering from low sperm count and infertility for donkey years, where we had to treat him recently by sperm washing. He also told me a story. He informed me that he had a dream or vision, where he saw an old lady with an old calabash or earthen vessel, and he was made to ejaculate and pour his sperms [semen] into the calabash, since then he had been suffering from low sperm count all these years that even led him to surgery.
Imagine these stories. I believe you must have many stories of your own, anyway I am the one telling it, and I am in a privileged position to hear many.
The ones that I have been told that are so many are the ones of miscarriages, the stories on that have been different. Some say that after becoming pregnant, they have seen either a horned goat or cow running into their abdomen in the dream and they woke up to find out that they are bleeding, others see red cloths, others found themselves in a meeting where someone surgically removed the baby.
In fact the stories and dreams are so many that if I had to write them all, they will fill out all the space, however I will tell you one more.
A certain lady who had been suffering from infertility for many years told her own dream and vision as this, that she was sleeping and an old woman came, put her hands into her lower abdomen, just like hot knives slicing through butter and took out her womb, after many trials she found out she could not get pregnant, she visited so many doctors and was tested numerously, all the tests confirm that she and her husband are okay but the infertility condition remained.
Somehow all these stories to a logical mind might look like either fabrications or self denial of one’s condition, but as a believer I believe there is some truth in them and they have some negative effects on those that had them by physically causing them infertility, low sperm count, miscarriages, difficulties In deliveries, fibroids, no ovulation and unnecessary surgeries that leads to no where.
As a medical practitioner and also a believer, I believe everyone must be in the middle and do not have to over spiritualize issues and also do not under spiritualize them. I have had many couples who are suffering from infertility that told me they believe their condition is spiritual and have given up taken treatment or seeking medical help and have turn rather to fasting and prayer and so called waiting on God.
I have always pointed out to them anytime I meet them, that just fasting and prayer, staying at home will not help them, they must seek medical help because God himself created the medical practitioners to help them, ignoring them is also disobedience to God and will lead to unpalatable consequences, many believe so much in their pastors and almost take them as their medical advisers, this is very dangerous, the bible says give to God what belong to God and to Caesar what belong to Caesar. This is simple, leave the spiritual part of your problem to your pastor to handle and also at the same time seek medical help continually for your problems to be solved. Do not just go one way, it is very dangerous, I have seen many women in my years of practice that ended up losing their fertility , their pregnancy, or their lives because of such fanatical believe on their pastors, who always advised them not to seek medical help because he will pray for them and God will heal them.
As many as I can I always give them this illustration, that if they have a piece of cloth that need to be sown into a gown, skirt, blouse or coat and they do not have any money or they believe they are so spiritual, why do they not take the piece of cloth to their pastor or man of God to fast and pray that the piece of cloth should turn to sown skirt and blouse. Rather they take it straight to a fashion designer or tailor, but when it comes to matters of their health they will take it to men of God and not to a medical practitioner who is trained and specialized in such matters. This is dangerous and need to stop. As the scripture says, prayer without work is nothing, so also seeking spiritual help for a problem without seeking medical help or ignoring medical advice is also vain and God himself will wash his hand off that problem.
I had this patient recently who has been suffering from infertility and also have large fibroids, she was weeping why me? that when her sister got married she easily got pregnant and had her children, while in her own case she suffered infertility when she got married. I informed her that medically her condition is not new, because she married in her late thirties, ovulation problems and fibroid problems including infertility are not uncommon at that age, so that problem is not really a spiritual matter. In fact many of the problems suffered latter as infertility are caused by ignorance, imagine a young lady who have done many bad abortions in her school days and the womb was badly damaged then (Though unknown to her), when she latter get married and suffer infertility, she will definitely blame it on one evil spirit or some man or woman, also imagine a man who have lived a very promiscuous life and now suffers from low sperm count, he will always blame it on something.
I will always advise any couple suffering from infertility to always fast and pray, then seriously seek medical help from qualified medical practitioners, they must undergo all the relevant medical tests and repeat them after 2 years until they get the solution, because most fertility tests I must confess are also some form of treatment, that have really helped infertility couples to conceive.
I most also advise couples that are married for more than two years to also try 2 or 3 cycles of assisted pregnancy techniques like, Sperm washing with IUI, it could just do it.
Finally give your life to God
Do not glorify Satan
Have faith and believe that you are healed and expect your miracle.
I have heard many infertility patients telling me that they have stopped trying and are now waiting for God’s miracle, that is foolishness, if you have a business that is not moving do you pray and stay at home and expect the business to succeed. How do you think God feels when you pray and fail to do nothing. Your chance of succeeding is slim.
So act now and do what is right.
