“And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, Now I will praise the LORD. Therefore she called his name Judah. Then she stopped bearing.” Genesis 29:35
Leah felt unloved and the LORD opened her womb and she birth’s four son’s. While looking for love from her husband Jacob and getting nothing. She birth’s her fourth son Judah and I believe she then realizes the LORD has been blessing her the whole time; “Now I will praise the LORD.” No matter what our situation is good or bad, we need to praise the LORD in all things!
“In the day of my trouble I will call upon You. For You will answer me.” Psalm 86:7
Like Leah when we are in trouble or going through trials, we need to call upon the LORD! But we also need to look and realize how He is answering us, He answers us according to His wisdom not ours, He answers and gives according to His ways not our ways which is always better!
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Today no matter what you maybe going through good or bad, whatever prayer requests you’re sharing with the LORD. Stop and look to see how He may have already answered you or better yet just stop and Praise the LORD! Don’t look for praises of men, but give praises to the LORD instead! Have a blessed day in Him!
