Genesis 29

1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

2 And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well’s mouth.

3 And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well’s mouth in his place.

4 And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.

5 And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.

6 And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

7 And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.

8 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the sheep.

9 And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep; for she kept them.

10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother.

11 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

12 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father’s brother, and that he was Rebekah’s son: and she ran and told her father.

13 And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister’s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

14 And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.

15 And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?

16 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

17 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.

18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

21 And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

22 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.

23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

24 And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

29 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

30 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

32 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    31When the lord saw that Leah was unloved, he enabled her to have children, but Rachel could not conceive.

    God loves everyone despite the fact if they are attractive or as Leah, not so attractive. God sees that Leah is unloved by Jacob, and so He allows Leah to be productive. Sometimes the ugly things in life are the most productive. A great example is Western Day. The situations surrounding the event were ugly but there were results. 🙂

  2. NLT
    31 When the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, he enabled her to have children, but Rachel could not conceive.
    32 So Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben,b for she said, “The LORD has noticed my misery, and now my husband will love me.”
    33 She soon became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She named him Simeon, for she said, “The LORD heard that I was unloved and has given me another son.”
    34 Then she became pregnant a third time and gave birth to another son. She named him Levi,d for she said, “Surely this time my husband will feel affection for me, since I have given him three sons!”
    35 Once again Leah became pregnant and gave birth to another son. She named him Judah,e for she said, “Now I will praise the LORD!” And then she stopped having children.

    Children are a reward from heaven. The Lord took pity on Leah and made her very fruitful.

  3. 20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

    I can only imagine Jacob, so in love with Rachel that as he worked and served he daydreamed about her. A year only seemed like a month and a month a day. As he worked his 7 years he planned a great future in his head only to be deceived. It was all the daydreaming and planning that caused him not to settle for Leah. He wanted Rachel and was determined to get her.

    I find it so much was to obtain the things I fall in love with doing or wanting. I find myself going to bed thinking about it and throughout the day I think about it. I make sacrifices to get it and allow nothing to stop me even if it doesn’t come when I wanted it to.

    As Christians it is important we are so determined to do the will of God that we allow nothing to stop us. Jacob was deceived and the devil will try his best to deceive us in any way possible in order to stop us. Yet, we have hope because as we walk in the spirit, deception is no match for the author of our faith.

  4. The determination showed by the individuals in this chapter is inspiring. As people of God we should never become satisfied and content with where we are but always desire more, and strive to achieve more.

  5. Patience

    18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

    It does not go for everyone but seems very common in today’s society that people have no patience especially when it comes to “love”. I am not perfect. We did not wait seven years to be wed. However, the demand for instant results is seeping into every corner of our lives, and not just virtually. Retailers are jumping into same-day delivery services. Smartphone apps eliminate the wait for a cab, a date, or a table at a busy restaurant. Instant gratification comes at a price: It’s making us less patient. The need for instant gratification is not new, but our expectation of ‘instant’ has become faster, and as a result, our patience is thinner.

  6. Laban substitution of Leah for Rachel reminds of us Jacob’s own substitution for his brother Esau. At last Jacob must have grasped how it felt to be deceived and cheated. At time God must teach us the hard way to be sensitive to others. This was not an easy lesson for Jacob to learn but it was a vital one.

  7. MORE HATERS

    31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

    GOD sees everything! The LORD saw that the unfavorable to look on Leah was hated or despised. GOD opened her womb. GOD blessed her for her trouble and pain.

    We must remember the greatest favor we can find is the favor of the LORD. It matters not how other people feel about us, what matters eternally is how the LORD sees us. I PRAY that we walk in the favor of the LORD even though we may be despised by others.

    I BLESS you today in JESUS name.

  8. 31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

    He knows our needs and will supply.

  9. god will supply our needs whether we are beautiful or not, and we need patience beautiful or not, God is no respecter of persons

  10. 18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

    19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

    20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

    21 And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

    Jacob was obedient to his father’s request and went to find a wife from the people of Canaan. It is evident that it was love at first sight for Jacob, so much so that he sacrificed 14 years of his life to have her.

    Our love for the Lord should be of that same magnitude. He loved us so much that he came to this earth, suffered and died that he could have us for his bride. He did more than work 14 years for us, he gave his life for us. We should appreciate his sacrifice and forever be in debted to Him and willing to serve Him in whatever capacity He calls for us to do.

  11. God blesses the Broken Heart

    30 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
    31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.
    32 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
    33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.
    34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.
    35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    It must of been hard to go through life trying to please a husband that won’t give you the time of day. Looking for the crumbs of love he might give her. However, God steps right in and gives her the unconditional love of her children. A legacy of the tribes of Israel. God is so good and just that He steps right in and fixes the unfixable. What a blessing it is to ALWAYS HAVE GOD’S LOVE.

  12. 35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    There comes a time in everyone’s life when we have to ignore the unfortunate situation we might be in and just praise the Lord

  13. v 20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

    Real love must be voluntary . I’m so thankful that GOD had the option and HE still chose to love us. HIS GREAT LOVE for us overcame the cruelty of the Romans and the betrayal of the Jews.
    HIS love conquers all !!!!

    As Jacob loved Rachel and desired to have a relationship with her.
    GOD desires to have a rich relationship with HIS fallen, selfish creation because HE CHOSE TO LOVE HE GAVE HIS ALL ON CALVARYY.

    MORE LOVE
    MORE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS!!!

  14. 20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

    27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

    28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

    Jacob had a spirit of determination, he wasn’t satisfied with Leah, he wanted Rachael. Us as Christians should have the same attitude of determination! We should never be satisfied where we are, but continually seek to be closer to God, and to go to higher places in Him! Lord give us a spirit of determination, and a spirit of passion and desire to go out and do the works of your kingdom!

  15. 27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

    Laban tricked Jacob much the same way he tricked his father Isaac for the inheritance. Laban knew Leah was undesireable. God was merciful to her and opened her womb so she could shine when everyone else put her down. Rachel already had the spotlight with all her beauty and Jacob’s love but her downfall was her barren womb. She would do anything to reproduce, but she just needed to trust in the Lord that he would open her womb when the time is right. Patience to marry Jacob and patients to reproduce, nothing came easy or quickly for this couple.

  16. And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    Praising through the trials. Even though Leah was not liked. She understood the opportunity of praise. Sometimes you just have to praise your way through.

  17. “The Lord saw that Jacob didn’t love Leah as much as he loved Rachel. So he let Leah have children. But Rachel wasn’t able to have children. Leah became pregnant. She had a son. She named him Reuben. She said, “The Lord has seen me suffer. Certainly my husband will love me now.””
    ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭29:31-32‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Leah wasn’t the preferred one or favored one in the eyes of her husband. But Leah was favored of God. It doesn’t matter what others think or say about us. What matters is what God thinks and says about us. Jesus was from the Tribe of Judah…. Leah gave birth Judah. Thankful for Gods favor. 

  18. People often wonder if working a long time for something they desire is worth it. Jacob worked seven years to Mary Rachel. After Bering tricked he agreed to work seven more years for her although he did get to marry Rachael shortly after he married Leah the most important goals and desire are worth working and waiting for. Movies and television have created the illusion that people have to wait only about an hour to solve their problems or get what they want. Don’t be trapped into thinking the same thing is true in real life. Patients is the hardest when we need it the most, but it is the key to achieving our goals,love,and life

  19. Gen. 29:31:35
    These scriptures talk about the four sons of Leah.
    1) Reuben – Surely the Lord hath looked upon mine affliction.
    2) Simeon – Because the Lord hath heard that I was hated.
    3) Levi – Now this time mine husband will be joined unto me.
    4) Judah – Now will I praise the lord.

    The first three sons of Leah are named to reflect her pain and the longing she has in her heart. With her fourth son, she Now begins to praise the Lord.
    Leah has a great purpose in God’s plan. Two of the greatest tribes came from her. Levi ( the priestly tribe) and Judah ( the royal tribe).

    The time is NOW to put the reflection of our past pain and longing behind us and begin to Praise the Lord for the Purpose and Future God has for us.

  20. “And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?” Jacob did as he said he would, none the less he was deceived by his own family. Deceptive acts will come, however one that can overcome as Jacob did will also prevail in the end; as Jacob did. Dear God, help me to recognize deception, so that I may overcome and not be consumed; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In GOD we trust”. “One Nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. What a mighty GOD we serve! Thank GOD for his word. GOD bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in JESUS name, Amen!

  21. “Fulfill her week, and we will give you this one also for the service which you will serve with me still another seven years.””Genesis‬ ‭29:27‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

    Laban deceived Jacob in order to get another seven years work from him between the both of Jacob and Laban theses families are related very minutely while the great events of states and kingdoms at that period are not mentioned . Jacob loved Rachel so much that he was willing to work another seven years.!

  22. Genesis 29:25

    And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

    The Christian walk is one of choices. We place our lives into his hands and allow him to lead and guide us daily. Yet sometimes we forget about this choice in light of things that we really want. Jacob serves as a classic example of one who sees his world turned upside down. He wanted Rachel but instead was given Leah.

    As the word foretells, Rachel is the one that Jacob wanted but Leah is the one he truly needed. Leah was an act of mercy that Jacob did not recognize for many many years. We have to be willing to accept what God gives us realizing that he knows how the story ends and what we truly need for the journey.

  23. Genesis 29:31 When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben for she said, It is because the Lord has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now. She conceived again and when she gave birth to a son she said, Because the Lord heard that I am not loved he gave me this one too. So she named him Simeon. Again she conceived and when she gave birth to a son she said, Now at last my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons. So he was named Levi.

  24. Gen29:15-30 Fulfil her week, and we will give the this also indicates that Jacob had to complete the wedding with Leah so he could then marry Rachel for whom he would have to serve another seven years. Thus ,he accepts both wives without asking God’s direction in the matter. Jacob was now being treated as he had treated his own brother and father. The deceiver had been out deceived at last and he loved also Rachel more than later

  25. “So Jacob worked seven years for Rachel. But it only seemed like a few days, he loved her so much.”
    ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭29:20‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    When a desire is pressed on your heart, time ceases to exist. What desire has God placed on your heart lately? We should all have a passion for something in his kingdom- lets desire to reach every lost soul we see in this world and help them to know God

  26. 27 Finish, therefore, the weekf for this one, and I will give you also this one for the work, which you will work with me yet another seven years.” 28 Jacobg did so and completed the week for this one, and Laban gave Rachel, his daughter, for him as a wife. 29 Laban gave Bilhah,h his maiden, to Rachel, his daughter, as a maiden for her. 30 And he went in to Rachel. He loved Rachel more than Leahi and served him another seven years.

    Rick Brannan et al., eds., The Lexham English Septuagint (Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2012), Ge 29:27–30.

    The fulfillment of the “week” here is probably the seven days of marriage celebration. Afterwards, Jacob married Rachel and worked for another seven years. I always had the assumption that he married her after seven years, but it appears that is probably not the case.

  27. 35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    If we read previous verdes se sea that what Leah was wanting was love and acceptance of man….ó wonder what would’ve happened if she had started with Judah and praising God for everything and not so much to get attention and acceptance of man. We might just try giving God praise and sending up some Judah and watch what the Lord might do. We are to seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness.

  28. Honor

    25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

    26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

    27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

    When in his house, Jacob refused to honor his brother, the firstborn. He thought lightly enough of his brother’s birthright to steal it and impersonate Esau in order to receive the firstborn’s blessing from his father. The honor attached to it was not a thing Jacob valued, more so just the personal gain from it.

    When he came to Laban’s house, Jacob’s immediate desire was for Rachel, the younger of Laban’s two daughters. Jacob offered to serve 7 years in order to marry Rachel but Laban tricked him into marrying Leah first. Laban cited the traditions of their land as his reason, perhaps similar to the tradition still practiced in India that the eldest son would marry the eldest daughter of a family, or the next oldest son if the eldest was not available. Commentary is unclear if this tradition even existed amongst the ancient Bedaween and it is thought that perhaps Laban made up this “tradition” in order to manipulate Jacob into working for him even longer to get Rachel (which Jacob obliged to do.)

    Either way, tradition or farce, it seemed Jacob was reaping the seeds he had sown in his dishonor towards the position of firstborn. He chose to take advantage of Esau when he was at a point of weakness, then sealed the deal again when he was not around to defend himself, then found himself deceived in the same way. Even down to the detail of the marriage night, traditionally the bride was to wear a veil to conceal her face until the next morning; this was why Jacob did not discover he had married Leah until the morning, just as Isaac was deceived into thinking Jacob was Esau because Jacob covered himself with goat’s hair and Isaac did not discover the deception until Esau actually arrived and it was too late.

    Taking advantage of people and pulling the rug out from under them sows bad seeds that will come back to bite us. Esau was in a place of great weakness when we first saw Jacob manipulate and cheat him; the people we step on in the dark when it is easy and convenient for us will bring back upon repercussions that will eventually be seen in the light. It may seem to strengthen us and further our ambition at the moment, but we are only hurting ourselves and those around us.

    We are to give honor where honor is due, and that honor may not always appear as we assume:

    1 Peter 3:7
    Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

    Honor being due is not always precluded by strength, success, power, and authority; Peter commanded husbands to give honor to their wives because they were the weaker vessels. The Amplified version also points out separately the issue of giving honor because she is a fellow heir of grace:

    1 Peter 3:7 AMP
    In the same way, you husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way [with great gentleness and tact, and with an intelligent regard for the marriage relationship], as with someone physically weaker, since she is a woman. Show her honor and respect as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered or ineffective.

    From this, we realize we are commanded to give honor to all of the household of faith, taking note especially of those who are weak or in a less favorable position. In fact, we can surmise the greater honor goes not necessarily to those who would seem “honorable” to our flesh but to those who are in need.

    Giving honor has to do with extended the love and grace of God in servanthood to one another, to minister where every one has need. We find in the book of James a stark example of how “displacing honor” does not glorify God (to withhold honor from whom it is due and to give carnal honor to those to whom it should not be given simply because of respect of riches):

    James 2:2-9 NLT
    2 For example, suppose someone comes into your meeting dressed in fancy clothes and expensive jewelry, and another comes in who is poor and dressed in dirty clothes.

    3 If you give special attention and a good seat to the rich person, but you say to the poor one, “You can stand over there, or else sit on the floor”—well,

    4 doesn’t this discrimination show that your judgments are guided by evil motives?

    5 Listen to me, dear brothers and sisters. Hasn’t God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith? Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the Kingdom he promised to those who love him?

    6 But you dishonor the poor! Isn’t it the rich who oppress you and drag you into court?

    7 Aren’t they the ones who slander Jesus Christ, whose noble name you bear?

    8 Yes indeed, it is good when you obey the royal law as found in the Scriptures: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    9 But if you favor some people over others, you are committing a sin. You are guilty of breaking the law.

    The widow who gave her two mites was worthy of honor over those who threw in not only of their plenty but who garnered the carnal honor of others in doing so. No matter how it might be dressed up, dishonorable acts reveal a heart not operating in the love of God as they should. Whether it is in word, deed, omission, or attitude, all should be done with proper honor towards others. By doing so, we truly honor God.

    We see even in the case of Leah and Rachel, God honored Leah because Jacob did not and gave her many more children than Rachel and out of her whom came Judah, from whom we trace the bloodline of Christ. The one whom Jacob rejected was the one God honored, and she turned and honored Him for His blessings:

    Genesis 29:31, 35
    31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

    35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

  29. 26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

    27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

    28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

    For all those single men out there looking for someone special, Jacob had to work seven years to marry a woman and fourteen years to marry the woman he actually loved, don’t get discouraged because it seems like you don’t see any chances for you, work hard at being the man God wants you to be and he will reward you for it.

  30. 35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
    as we all know Judah means praise we are blessed to have that son named Judah because he has given us a reason to be able to give praise and honor to God Let’s Send Up Judah!

  31. 31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

    Sometimes our blessing comes in our times of despair. Leah was in a place where she was unloved, unwanted. She didn’t ask to be there but she was. God saw her pain and blessed her. She thought her blessings may have gained her husbands love but after years she turned her blessings into praising God. She took her sights off earthly affirmation and turned it towards heaven.

  32. 35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    Thank you Jesus.

  33. We must never forget our first love….Jesus. We must strive to obtain more, be more and share more. If you love something, the cost doesn’t mattter, the work doesn’t seem like work, the wait seems like nothing…why?….because it means so much MORE to you. Remember….Jesus loves YOU so much, He thought YOU were worth dying for.

  34. 9 And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep; for she kept them.

    Besides the fact the Rachel was beautiful, she was a working woman. Not afraid to get her hands dirty, and do a mans job.

    She did t let her beauty keep her from being a lady with a work ethic. Lessons from the Word.

  35. 5 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

    Awesome scripture!

    When you have had enough of all the mess in life just Praise the Lord and you can be free of your burdens. Amen!

  36. 1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

    We are all in a journey, journey to spreading the gospel and being unified to teaching as many souls as possible. Jesus is a true living God that cannot be replaced by anything or anything. Nobody bigger and nobody greater than my Jesus!!!!!! So grateful to have met my Lord nothing is better than being in His presence 🙂

  37. 23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

    24 And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

    25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

    We must always keep our eyes on the prize if not any distraction can put us in a bad situation.

  38. The beginning of a nation
    And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

    32 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

    33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

  40. “And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.”
    ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭29:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    When you love something it is easy to serve and be committed for a long time without realizing how long you have done it. Maybe the reason that we get tired when we are serving is because we have lost our passion and our first love for it. I pray that we have a renewed passion for the things of God.
