The Many-Breasted One Part 1

When we had our children, I always breast-fed them for a few months in order to
give them the nutrients they needed as newborns. I would be incorrect if I said it
was not painful at first! Even though I had challenges, I soon learned the art of
breastfeeding. Praise God, I made it through all four of our boys! Why am I telling
you this? Glad you asked (smiles). One of our members just has a precious new
baby boy and she is breastfeeding that God-given bundle of JOY. As I looked into
that precious newborn face as he nestled in the arms of his mother a scripture came
to mind that I had read some time ago: “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will
not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15 NIV)

When we see a newborn it’s a fact they are as needy as they come. They need
human interaction, love, shelter, warmth, feeding on time, and the list goes on. Can
a woman forget her suckling child? It is not likely that she would. So, why should
we think that our God has forgotten us? He is concerned for our comfort; He would
not have us droop, be discouraged, or give way to any uneasy thoughts. God's
compassions toward us infinitely exceeds those of the tenderest parents towards
their children.

One of God’s names is El-Shaddai (Exodus 6:3). The name El-Shaddai (God
Almighty), the God of many breasts, clearly indicates that the righteous and loving
God Jehovah cares for us as a mother cares for her newborn child. But the enemy
of our soul wants the child of God to feel abandoned and that no one cares about
them. There are times we look in the wrong places for affirmation. Everything we
could need, exactly when we need it, God IS!

Babies start out feeding on milk but there comes a time when that baby wants a
chicken bone (humor). Scripture refers to breast milk as the basics of Christianity,
but there comes a time when we need to mature in our walk with the Lord. Our
spiritual growth depends on how much of the “meat” of the Word that we can and
are able to willingly digest!

“Therefore, putting aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisy and envy and all
slander, like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may
grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the graciousness of the Lord.”
(1 Peter 2:1-3)
