Rachel and Leah (part 2)

Rebecca favoured Jacob and she sowed a seed of manipulation, deception, prejudice and injustice into her future generations. Joseph, being such a good boy himself, unfortunately had to reap every bit of what she had sowed.
Jacob loved Rachel. And they both loved Joseph more than anyone else. But even though Joseph survived the generational curse that's upon his life from birth, even though he even saved his nation by his own good faith and works, even though Jacob and Rachel had done all they could to pass down the generational blessings to him, he could not twist God's arm again to get the blessing as the bloodline of Abraham all the way to Jesus.
What the Lord's been teaching me through these is, "Seek my face, not my hands. If you seek my face, then my blessings will be upon your children."
So many parents are using their manipulative powers to gain benefit for their children, most of them uncontiously. Their children can be just like Joseph, as good as they can be. But if all we're seeking is God's hands, we might get what we want for now, but we're missing out the real big blessings big time.
Sometimes it's hard to live like Leah. It's hard to not to have the love and praise of man. Everyone wants to follow Rachel: "I'll have what she's having". But if you have a mindset of eternal benefit, your point of view might change.
The Lord's been telling me, "If you seek my face, then I will not forget my hands. And the blessings upon your children and your children's children will be appointed."
