Pregnant by Nicoletta Curtis

 

I was recalling this AWESOME I mean AMAZING sermon on Leah and Rachel! There are so many times in my life, I have felt just like Leah. We as women especially find ourselves striving. In a society that tells us at each and every turn that we need to be this way or look this way to attract a mate, or to be successful…..the enemy lies to us.


Do you remember how Leah tried and tried to gain her husband’s approval? She thought….” If I can have this baby for him, maybe I’ll gain his affection……” She named her children different names…..(I am calling on recollection, but this is pretty close) The first child translated to “See”…..as in…..”See what I have done? do you see this child I have given you”. The second child’s name translated to “hear, don’t you hear me” And the third child’s name translated to “Join”. She was literally doing back flips to try to gain HIS attention. This man of the flesh who’s affections were toward Rachel.


Leah was a heartbroken lady. I can NOT imagine how much sadness she endured. (well, actually I have tasted this before…..SUCH heartache) BUT …….FINALLY!!! Leah’s fourth child…..she got her focus off that man…..and she named that child “Judah” which means “praise”. She got her heart and eyes on GOD! She started praising God……and ALL along……she was PREGNANT with that praise. That seed, that promise of God…JUDAH……was not just any child, but the lineage to Jesus Christ himself. WOW!!!

We are all facing different times of disappointment and trials. Heart ache and frustrations. But when we get our eyes off of the battle, off of the trial, and just PRAISE HIM…..we can fulfill what God has us to do in this life.
You are pregnant with a praise and with a destiny of the Father!!! Walk in it today!!!
God bless you!!
