“ When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, he enabled her to have children, but Rachel could not conceive.” ~ Genesis 29:31
When I read this, it really touched me. I stopped and began to think of all the ladies that I encounter at Planned Parenthood when I am counseling and praying on the street. When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved…
We hear of the “unloveable”…I remember the first time I heard that said in church I got mad. I would like to believe that no one is unloveable, but being human, we know that is not true. Yes, God loves us all…and in my fairy tale, fantasy, perfectly sanctified dreamy land I do too, but that ain’t reality, sister. I’m a work in progress…
Back to the Word…the Lord saw that Leah was unloved so He enabled her to have children. Enabled her…[empowered, equipped, permitted, authorized, made possible, qualified]
The Giver of Life…”The Father has life in himself, and he has granted that same life-giving power to his Son.” ~ John 5:26
He worked hard to love her. He enabled…we see the synonyms for this word…they are all working words. He loved her by giving her a purpose…someone to love. He showed her love by having her express it. He did for her what He did for all of us…He allowed her to conceive…He does the same for each of us by impregnating us with the Holy Spirit the moment we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us the Promise, the Giver of Life, He breathes on us and says… “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven. If you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” ~ John 20:22-23
Why would He enable her to have children because she was unloved? So that she could know that Love can only come from God…He enabled her to have children, He gives her Love. The Word tells us that children are a gift, a treasure from God (Psalm 127:3).
January 21, 2013: Stephanie, Delena, and myself hit the streets in front of Planned Parenthood in hopes of saving babies and souls. We prayed with many people. One man is a pimp…he brought 3 young women to the clinic today. I looked at him intently in his eyes and delivered the hard truth to him. I told him that there are too many young black men doing what he is doing and we need more black men of God to stand up and make a difference in this nation and change our culture. He agreed. He said, “It’s hard out here.” I said, “Are you trying to tell me its hard out here for a pimp?” He said, “You know!” I told him it’s harder to stand up for righteousness than it is to do what he is doing, what everyone else is doing. I let him know he is deceived if he thinks that he can’t make a difference, that yes, it IS hard…but all things are possible with Christ who gives us strength. I told him that I don’t know who his daddy WAS, but I know who his Daddy IS and He can do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever think or imagine in us and through us if we just surrender to Him. He liked that. I told him that we will continue to pray for him…His name is William, so please do so!
We encountered Olga and Junior. Olga has a hard heart. She claims she doesn’t like kids, doesn’t want kids and is having this abortion. We spent a lot of time with her and Junior, praying and delivering Truth. We did what we could do…we prayed over her letting her know that God wants her heart, that He changes the desires of our heart and He will regenerate her heart, making it flesh and full of Love. We told her about the Cross and why it was necessary. I told her that Jesus didn’t want to get on that Cross either…even asked God to take the cup of wrath, but it was what was right and necessary. God wants the same from us. What is right and necessary. He makes no mistakes. He is the Giver of Life.
Please continue to lift these two up…she has an appointment for her procedure Saturday at 8 am. Delena and Stephanie are going back to be there, whatever her decision is we will pray for her.
This post may not make much sense to many…but that Scripture (Gen 29:31) is stuck in my Spirit. More will be revealed…
