As Hagar sat in the wilderness, God came and answered her “why” with words of affirmation. I will make your son a great nation. God saw Leah’s circumstances and heard her words “the Lord has taken pity on my oppressed condition” and then again “Because the Lord heard that I was unloved,” and then again “now this time my husband will show me affection.” But, it was not until the fourth child, Levi, was born that she came to realize the truth of Jeremiah’s words spoken by God: “I have loved you with an everlasting love. That is why I have continued to be faithful to you.”
Wherever you are, Beloved, know this truth: you are loved! God will always remain faithful to you even if others are not.
