And God granted him that which he requested.1 Chronicles 4:10
Multitudes are now praying The Prayer of Jabez each day. Who are they? People who are tired of settling for less and want to do more for God. People who’ve discovered that they can exchange their lack for His provision. People who’ve come to understand that certain blessings are only given, when you ask for them. People who realise that God’s blessings bring supernatural favour that affects every aspect of your life. People who make their wants subservient to His plans. People who believe that God will decide what their blessings should be, when they’re qualified to handle them and how they should receive them. People who believe that when you pray for what God desires, the unhindered forces of heaven begin to accomplish His purposes through you!
James says, “You do not have, because you do not ask” (James 4:2 NAS). If you don’t ask, you won’t get all you’re supposed to have; you’ll actually forfeit those blessings that come only when you do.
God describes Himself as “abundant in goodness” (Exodus 34:6). If you’re used to thinking of Him any other way – change the way you think! Somehow Jabez discovered that it was God’s nature, God’s will and God’s desire, to bless Him. So he asked, and his life was changed. Make a life-long commitment right now to ask God to bless you every day – and to bless you a lot (that’s what “indeed” means).
