Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Your questions on infertility answered from the bible
Q1: Will my baby be born with a genetic disorder?
I know many women who want to have a baby will be afraid of what they have been hearing and say, “what if my baby is born with a genetic disorder because of my age?
I really want to address this issue from the Word of God. In the first instance we saw that Elizabeth and Zachariah had John the Baptist at a great old age, and that child came out perfect. We saw Abraham and Sarah had Isaac at 100 and 91 years respectively and he came out a perfect child. God blessed these older couples with perfect children. The bible says every good and perfect gift comes from God. James 1:17. God will not bless you with the gift of a deformed child if you ask Him for a child. You may say, “Well Elizabeth and Sarah were different.” What He did for one He will do for the other if you can find it in His Word. God is true and faithful, and He is merciful and just. Do not be afraid to ask God for what you want. God wants to bless you with a perfect baby who will bring joy and happiness into your life.
Q2: Because of my age, will I die while my children are still young?
Many people are against older women having children because they say the woman will die and leave very young children without a mother. I personally believe that this is wrong. Death has not and has never had anything to do with age. We have seen very young people die without fulfilling their destiny and leaving young children behind. Life is something that is given to everyone and the choice of how we live it is left to us individuals. I want the older woman to hear this today. You will not die before your child or children are grown up, for this is God’s promise to you. “With long life will I satisfy you and show you my salvation.” Psalm 92:16. You will still bear fruit in old age. You will stay fresh and green. Psalm 94.14. In all these Bible promises we get an idea of what God has for the older woman. He wants you to live to full old age and see your children’s children. Forget what fear is saying and start listening to what God is saying to
you today. Take His Word and let it bless you so that your life and your joy is full. For the Bible says, a child born in old age will do this for you: he will renew your life and sustain you in your old age. Ruth 4:15
Q3: I am an older woman and I am not married, but I desire to have children. What does God have for me?
The Bible says at your age – the age at which you are now – God will satisfy your desire. Psalm 103:5. This scripture is quite clear. If your desire is to be happily married and have children at the age you are now, then God is able. For our God promises to satisfy that desire. Our Lord Jesus Christ said to us, “ask and you will receive”. So, all you need is to ask God what you desire. Ask God to bless you with one of his handsome sons who you can spend the rest of your life with. God himself said, “it is not good for man/woman to be alone”. Man did not say this, God himself said it because He is the one who created us and knows our basic
needs. God himself said if you ask Him for bread, He will not give you a stone. Today, I want to encourage you to ask God to bless you with a home, a husband and children and if your heart’s desire is sincere I know God will do it for you. Remember this Biblical promise. “No good thing will he withhold from those who love Him.” Ask in faith and trust Him to be faithful to bless you. For the Bible says in Luke 1:36, “Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible with God.”
