Joel Osteen Daily Devotional November 5, 2022 Message
TOPIC: At the Right Time
Genesis 30:1, NKJV – Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, “Give me children, or else I die!”
TODAY’S WORD | JOEL OSTEEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
In Genesis 29-30 is the story of two sisters named Rachel and Leah, who both became wives of a young man named Jacob. The Scripture says, “Rachel was beautiful in every way, with a lovely face and shapely figure,” and Jacob adored her. I’m sure that people who saw her thought that she was one blessed lady. But Rachel’s dream was to have a baby, and she was barren and stuck in a really dark place.
The point is, everybody is dealing with a secret frustration. Rachel, who was blessed with great looks and a loving husband, had one crucial matter she didn’t understand, one thing God was not removing. Her attitude had to become, “God, if it never changes, if I never have children, I’m still going to be happy. I give it to You.” That’s what happened with Rachel. At the right time, God removed the barrenness, and she had a remarkable son named Joseph. The darkness gave way to the light, and that secret frustration gave way to a huge blessing.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for the understanding that it’s not just me, but every person deals with secret frustrations. Thank You that I can be at peace, knowing that even if it never changes, I can be happy. I believe that You have given me all I need for now, and at the right time You’ll give me more as I need it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
