1 Chronicles 4:9-10
Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez,[a] saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
The four line prayer……..here Jabez is asking GOD to bless him, help him, be with him, and keep him from pain. When we pray it should not be a selfish prayer. We also should pray for GOD’s blessings by asking him to take his just position as LORD over our work, our family, and our mission. Jabez prayed a precise prayer as he wanted to be limited from the pain and danger. We must make sure that we ask GOD to keep us safe from the evil that comes toward us. We also must ask GOD to be the protector of our thoughts and actions. Daily we should fill our minds and our thoughts with a positive attitude. GOD will grant us our wish but we must put in some work as well.
Some people goes around thinking life is about them when in all actuality, life is about fulfilling Christ’s mission for you. If you want this, then ask GOD to come into your heart and restore your life in His likeness. He will enlarge your territory, but you must be willing to let Him fill every area of your life with His existence. Right now, I ask you to give your cares to GOD, and He will flourish you.
Read these two verses/four lines daily and believe that GOD will grant you your desires. Each day you must spend time with GOD, reading his word, praying and asking for guidance, meditating and having the trust and faith to believe. GOD loves you and he wants you to live that fulfilled life. Start praying today no need to wait.
GOD Bless You WOG, continue to live your life according to GOD. Love You Minister Clara Peters.
