I really like the word incubation. It speaks to warmth, and intimacy. The bond between a mother and her unborn baby is indescribable. You become pregnant, suddenly you are thrusted into an all consuming love for a person that is literally connected to your very being. It’s an amazing process that only God could have created. The birth of a beautiful baby is life changing in the most incredible way. But any woman who has been pregnant will tell you that the beauty of it all comes in stages. Much of the time throughout pregnancy is actually quite gross, I’ll spare you the details. Regardless of how the mother feels, whether disgusted or beautiful, she has to go through the entire process successfully to deliver a healthy baby. The natural birthing process is a representation of the birthing process in the spirit. In order to successfully birth the dreams that God has given to us, we must first endure the process. It is challenging, it is hard, sometimes it can be painful. But we must endure to see our dreams come to life. Let’s chat about The Incubation of a God Dream.
Incubation – The process of keeping something at the right temperature and in the right conditions so it can develop to maturity.
Now think about that definition for a moment and consider how many things you have kept incubated throughout your life. Dreams, plans, goals, ideas, gifts and talents; all of these things required to be kept in just the right condition and should only be exposed at the right time. Otherwise what we are trying to accomplish will be revealed prematurely, resulting in an aborted or miscarried assignment. I was born 2 pounds 14 ounces in the beginning of my mother’s 6th month of pregnancy. So I was literally a premature baby who was placed inside of an incubator directly after birth. I am a walking miracle to say the least. The Lord saw fit to allow me to come here early but still he kept me until I was able to be released out into the world. First I was incubated in my mother’s womb. After birth I was kept in an actual incubator before being released into the hospital room. Once I was ready, I was able to be taken home to be incubated and cared for by my parents in our home. As it was with my birth, so it is with all things that God has placed inside of us. We must be covered, shielded and protected from all of the impurities of the world that might cause damage or injury to the health of what we carry.
Can you pinpoint the dreams inside of you that have been kept in just the precise conditions needed for them to mature? Perhaps you are incubating some “spiritual babies” right now. You might ask what is exactly is a spiritual baby? That’s just a little term I use to describe dreams that God has designed for us to discover and bring to life. Picture an egg for a moment. You know that the egg has an outer shell. It has an inner membrane known as the white, which houses the yolk. God impregnates us with a dream (yolk). He incubates the dream in our hearts (white), and the dream is kept inside of us (shell) until it is ready to be released into the world around us. A simple description of an egg is a perfect representation of the incubation process that we must go through to birth the God given dreams that are inside of us. The best way to ensure that we are successful is to keep ourselves clean from the impurities of the world. We must continually study and obey the word of God, it is our foundation and our protection.
“But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you [setting you on a firm foundation] and will protect and guard you from the evil one.”
2 Thessalonians 3:3 AMP
“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 1:20 AMP
Rejoice in the Lord and know that anything he has given to you will be birthed in due time. The process of keeping what you carry until full maturity can be challenging. But it will keep you safe as you wait for it to manifest. Trust in the Lord and know that he will never go against himself. If you gives you a dream he will see that it comes to pass in your life. I pray that this post was a blessing to you. Thank you for taking the time to chat with me today. I look forward to our next discussion. Until our next chat, be blessed. ❤️
