“Sing, O barren,
You who have not borne!
Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child!
For more are the children of the desolate, Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:1
Here we see God in His Sovereignty telling a Barren people to sing. Why sing? Not only that, but why should we sing when we are barren?
According to Merriam-Webster
Barren : habitually failing to fruit, incapable of producing offspring or producing inferior harvest.
This word barren also means injured.
God is speaking to an injured people. A people whom throughout their lifetime, have not been able to bring forth that which God has placed in their hearts.
The enemy did something to destroy them in certain areas in their past. These injuries from past wounds and trauma, triggers a mindset that they are incapable of going further than their current condition. These weapons come to cause a desensitization of the spirit and a numbness of soul to the plan and purpose of God in their lives
GOD Established a plan for your barrenness, from the foundation of the world and you don’t have to wait until you SEE any sign of it, in order to SING!
God is causing a divine disruption and the song He has given you, is a new song!
God is saying, “I’m going to use the desensitization from the enemy to SENSITIZE you to the Spirit of the LIVING God, who is saying “Break Forth into singing”, “you couldn’t BRING forth, so I am commanding your spirit to BREAK forth”!
Bring- is to fetch or to obtain or procure.
BREAK -is to separate with suddenness and violence, to open spontaneously by pressure from within!
You tried but it didn’t happen… but God is saying if you will allow the pressures from past disappointments and failures to open up your mouth, emitting a sound that has never been heard before in this earth unto me, that which I have placed on the inside of you is going to suddenly separate itself from the confines of the strongholds in your mind and every other false restriction including NATURAL law and BREAK forth, penetrating this natural realm with the supernatural manifestation of God Glory in your life!
God promised in Deuteronomy 7:14 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you!
SING O Barren! Hallelujah!
