Spiritual Growth—the Conception Stage

Spiritual Growth—the Conception Stage

A human life is never more vulnerable than during the conception stage of life. There are so many reasons a life is loss during this stage—miscarriage, sickness, infection, abortion….

Some of you might be in the conception stage spiritually speaking right now. You may have not yet experienced a true spiritual birth, but the seeds of God’s Word have been implanted into your heart.

You might be in the process of spiritual fetal development that is leading up to your spiritual birth.

Don’t let anything abort the process!

The devil loves abortion, both in the natural and in the supernatural realm. He loves to kill life before it ever has the chance to blossom and grow to full maturity and fruitfulness.

God’s Word is the main ingredient that leads to full term and a healthy spiritual birth.

“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes by the Word of God.”[1] Another powerful component of the conception stage is to associate with people of faith, so you can learn and grow in your faith.[2]

The devil wants to keep those close to spiritual birth away from those in faith. As a believer, you should discern when you should walk more closely to those in this stage. Nurture that life brewing inside them.
