Fear Not, God is in Control

“And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.” Genesis 35:17 In the verse before we learn Rachel was in “hard labour”. When I read this I imagine the fear that must have overwhelmed her. So much so the midwife could see it and reassured her “fear not: thou shalt have this son also.” She names the baby in the next verse as she is dying. As I was reading this, I said Poppa she died and He said but her baby lived. Before she died she had the reassurance that her baby was okay and she got to name him. “And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.” Our story doesn’t always end the way we envision it, but when we trust God we can walk into it with no fear believing it will work out according to His will and purpose for our lives. I almost skipped over this verse this morning, but God said not so. Rachel’s baby lived and she named him. There is an awesome blessing in that. Fear not. God is in control. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
