January 10 "Jealousy" Genesis 30-31
Sisters. Jealousy. Seems as though God has forgotten Rachel. She goes 27 years barren. Unheard of. Who waits almost 3 decades for a child? A broken, beautiful Rachel. "Then God remembered Rachel; he listened to her and enabled her to conceive. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son and she said, 'God has taken away my disgrace.' She named him Joseph, and said, 'May the Lord add to me another son.' " Genesis 30:22. And it's a Rachel who holds no malice toward her sister any longer. God added so much to Rachel's life. God acts in behalf of those who wait for Him. We wait for God, not man.
