January is Birth Defect Awareness Month. Birth defects are health conditions that are present at birth. They change the shape or function of one or more parts of the body. Birth defects can cause problems in overall health and growth of the child.
God is the eternal healer. Here are scriptures for expectant mothers to meditate upon, if they should get the stressful news that their child may have a birth defect.
‘I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?’
‘Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.’
‘Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.’
‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’
‘When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.’
