What do you do when who you are destined to be, is trapped inside of who you are? This book exposes the life and legacy of Leah, the Messianic Matriarch. So little has been said about Leah in the biblical text. Her story has been easily overlooked, misinterpreted and maligned in history. Therefore, she has been given a bad rap, and many have even mistakenly called her ugly!
The untold story of Leah’s legacy declares that God has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle and a gift for your faithfulness! Although she comes across as secondary in the eyes of her father, her sister, her husband and even in history, Leah was primary in the mind of God!
Amidst this dark period of her life, God gives her a clear vision of the monumental role she played in Israel’s future – birthing half of the nation of Israel, and most notably the Messianic and priestly tribes. The “left out” sister gives us a living Savior; the mistreated one gives us the Messiah!
Leah’s story speaks a word of hope for the disenfranchised and disadvantaged; those who know the pain of being marginalized and minimized. It’s comforting to know that when we feel like the underdog, the outcast and overlooked, that our God has us in mind! He zeroes in on the thing that really matters – our response to His love. God chose the lineage of Leah to usher in the Messianic tribe of Judah, through whom His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ would be born. Read “Clear Vision in a Dark Place” and see Leah like you have never seen her before!
