The Open Series Part 3

Genesis 30:22  And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.

As the story goes Leah ,  Rachel's  sister, one of Jacobs wives was having children and Rachel wasn't able to have any.  To have children , at least in that time , was helping to contribute to Abrahams promise [ I will make you a Father of many nations] . For an Israelite woman not able to have children , was looked upon as something terrible. Rachel let Jacob have his maid as a substitute for her , and the race was on.  Ever settle for substitutes ? Its just not the same or very gratifying is it ? But then God remembered Rachel's prayer and opened her womb.  She gave birth to Joseph and Benjamin.  I have been in situations where if God did not open up the way , it just wasn't going to be open.  It doesn't matter how talented or capable we are in a given area if the door is shut , its shut.
Do you need God to open something in your life today ? A job,  a house , or perhaps something going amiss in a relationship ? God can open up the red sea in your life , and make a way for you to cross over . lord , I ask you to meet every readers need today in Jesus name! God Bless you on your journey .
