Married and Childless: Will God hear us when we call?

Blizette Esguerra and her husband Jaycee cannot count how many times they uttered this prayer with all their hearts.

The couple have always dreamed of having a child they can love and call their own. They thought God had been testing their faith because they struggle to have a child since 2013.

“We were asking ourselves, What’s the problem with us and our bodies? All our married friends already have their own babies,” cries Blizette, sharing the frustration she endured at the age of 33.

Jaycee added, “We came to a point when we felt so desperate because people would always ask us how long weve been married, and why we do not have a child yet.

However, despite their struggles of being childless, the couple remained obedient to God. They were inspired to even give to the mission of Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines – CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm – in reaching out to the most neglected and disadvantaged people in the country.

The couple believe that they are mere stewards of God’s resources and are called to share the blessings God entrusted to them – while silently praying and boldly trusting God to hear their heart’s desires. 

True as they say, nothing can stop God for wanting to bless His children.

While watching The 700 Club Asia one night, Blizette heard a message from God through the host Felichi Buizon as she said these words, “Right now, there ithis one lady who is desiring to be pregnant. You don’t have any defect; the Lord is opening your womb.

Blizette raised her hands, received the prayer, and left no room for doubt.

Blessings came pouring down in their lives. Because of their generous hearts to help God’s ministry, God took over their finances and blessed them with a store in a well-known mall.

Apart from that, God also blessed them a wonderful baby. Blizette bore a child and named him Kenzo Zechariah.

Holding the beautiful life on his hands, Jaycee cannot help but express his awe to God, “Jesus answers prayers. We just have to be faithful to Him.

You too, can receive God’s unexpected blessings.

His ears are always open for your prayers and He hears you when you callHe loves you so much that He is willing to bless your obedient heart’s desires – according to His pleasing and perfect plans.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (1 John 5:14 NKJV)
