Scripture:
“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, ‘I gave birth to him in pain.’ 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.” ~1 Chronicles 4:10

Observation:
These are the only verses about Jabez in the entire Bible, so all we really know about him is here. He was more honorable than his brothers, he cried out to God, and God granted his request.

Application:
God doesn’t owe me anything and He doesn’t have to listen to my prayers. I am already blessed in ways that Jabez could never have imagined. I will still be honorable and I will still ask blessing of the Lord, so that I may be a blessing to others.

Prayer:
God, please bless me and increase my influence for You. Let Your hand be with me and keep me free from any spiritual harm that could lessen my ministry. As I am faithful, enlarge my ministry “territory.”
