What is Birth Defect?
Birth Defect means having a physical or biochemical abnormality that is presented at birth and may be passed on from generations or seen as the result of environmental influence. This is the medical definition; but what is the spiritual reason why people go through this?
One of the most common questions nonbelievers ask is: “If God is so good and created us, why does he allow children be born with birth defects?” Birth defects come across due to iniquities. Iniquities such as bad thoughts or rejection, witchcraft or a curse. It is not the individual’s fault and” at times” not even the parent’s. For the bible says that the iniquities will pass on the third and fourth generation; Iniquity is the chain of sins.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”Psalm 127:3-5
Many people don’t realize how common a birth defect really is. Birth defect usually occurs in 1/33 born babies in the United States. Most people know someone affected by this matter. The most common could be Autism, Down syndrome or even a Cleft lip. January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month, a time to focus on raising awareness about the frequency with which birth defects occur in the US and of the steps that can be taken to prevent them.
The best way to deal with this is through faith. Have faith in what you cannot see but believe. Through faith, many diagnosed birth defect babies are born in perfect condition. Just believe what you cannot yet see. You are an overcomer!
