SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- 1 CHRONICLES 4:10
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted His request.
Thought of the day
Jabez was mentioned in a long genealogy, but the Lord honored him by mentioning his prayer for the Lord to bless Him. Throughout the Bible this is a common prayer and God seems to love answering it.
Questions to ponder
-Do I believe God wants to bless me? If not, what hinders me from believing and praying this?
-Get specific. In what ways do you want God to bless you? What would it look like for Him to expand your territory?
“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
