Dreaming of Rachel, Waking Up with Leah-3
Genesis 29:25 “And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it [was] Leah: and he said to Laban, What [is] this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?”
Genesis 28:16 “And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew [it] not.”
God appeared to Jacob and showed him his colourful future. Very beautiful and wonderful. He was excited and continued on his journey to fulfil destiny.
On getting to the strange land, he had no problem locating his uncle. There were no GSMs and GPS in those days to aid him locate people. Yet he had it smooth and easy, God ordered his steps. Hear this:
Genesis 29:9 “And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep: for she kept them.”
Genesis 29:10 “And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother.”
Genesis 29:11 “And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.”
Genesis 29:12 “And Jacob told Rachel that he [was] her father’s brother, and that he [was] Rebekah’s son: and she ran and told her father.”
What more can a man ask for? God was visibly in his sojourn! To crown it all, Jacob met the woman of his dream; the one that would stand beside him as he lived the dream God gave him. That was the icing on the cake.
Genesis 29:17 “…Rachel was stunningly beautiful.”(MSG)
Jacob was excited; he had it all together in one piece! Without wasting time he suggested a dowry without asking questions and seeking for advice from God or man.
