then God remembered Rachel; he heard her prayer and made her fruitful. She conceived and bore a son, and she said, “God has removed my disgrace.” So she named him Joseph, meaning, “May the Lord add another son to this one for me!”(Genesis 30: 22-24)
When Rachel finally calls out to God, He rewards her by giving her a son of her own. However, we wonder if her newfound faith will last or is it as fleeting as it has been in the past.
Question to Ponder:
1. Am I only grateful to God when He does things my way?
Lord Jesus, help me to find true contentment in an intimate relationship with you. Help me not to rely on my looks or other things of this world and only turn to you for my fulfillment. Amen.
All For the Glory of God,
