How did Leah, the unloved, end up in the family burial plot? Check it out:
Jacob loved Rachel more than he loved Leah. (Genesis 29:30, NIV) Rachel died in childbirth and was buried on the way to Bethlehem. (See Genesis 35:16-19) When Jacob died, he asked to be buried in the family plot with all his ancestors…and with Leah! (Genesis 49: 29-32, NIV)
Leah’s son, not Rachel’s, is included in the lineage of Christ (Luke 3:33b-34a)
When life seems too hard to bear, remember, God isn’t finished with us yet.
For your Maker is your husband— the Lord Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. (Isaiah 54:5, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, forgive us for giving up, and forgetting that you are still at work on our behalf. Amen.
