“Leah was married to Jacob, but Jacob’s true love was Rachel. Leah had the unhappy distinction of being unloved, and she knew it. This was a deep wound she always carried, the unceasing sorrow of her life. However, Leah became fruitful, even more fruitful than Rachel.
She bore Levi from whom came the priesthood of Israel, and from Levi was born Moses. Through Moses came the Passover, the Exodus, the Ten Commandments, the Law, the Tabernacle, the priesthood, the Temple. Through Moses, the children of Israel would enter the Promised Land. Through Moses would begin the writing of the Word of God, the Bible.
She also bore Judah. From Judah came David. From David came the royal house of Israel. From Judah came Jesus, the Messiah, the hope and salvation of the world. All this came from rejected Leah’s womb. God chooses the children of Leah. . . even to this day.
Who are the children of Leah? Those who, through sorrows, wounds, rejection, emptiness, broken dreams, broken hearts, frustration, discontentment, pain, tears, emptiness, or simply the longing for something more than they have on earth. . . become born into the kingdom, born of God. . . chosen for great and mighty things, the vessels through which His love and redemption come into the world. . . For God especially loves the unloved and the unlikely.
Commit any sorrow, rejection, frustration, or broken dream into His hands. Believe Him to bring out of your life blessings to the world.”
