Bless Me Indeed… Enlarge my Territory!
I just love the story of Jabez, a man who’s name stood for pain. In 1 Chronicles 4:10, we read the story of a one mans favor due to his simple cry out to The Lord. The scripture states he was favored, although his mother bore him in pain. He, Jabez, wanted to change what his name meant and change the trajectory of his destiny. So what did he do? He cried out to The Lord.
Scripture: “Jabez was more honored than his brothers. His mother named him Jabez, saying “I bore him in pain.” Jabez called on Israel’s God: “If only you would greatly bless me and increase my Territory. May your power go with me and keep me from trouble, so as not to cause me pain.” And God granted his request.”– 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 CEB
What I love most is the simplicity in this text! Jabez asked, God granted! It was the BEST scriptural punch line ever! Just as Jabez was favored, you too my friend is also favored! Open up your mouth and cry out to The Lord.
Day 9 Prayer Prompt: Bless me Indeed…
In the words of Lauryn Hill “It could all be so simple….but you rather make it hard”. Instead of the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, some of us suffer from the Miseducation of Elohim! Elohim is another name for God which means infinite. The one who’s all powerful. He can make it happen for you! Try him. Go into prayer and watch him work. I decree and declare that your prayers will be answered expeditiously! #JabezAnointing #Favor #BlessMeIndeed
