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
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
When our hearts are tuned to God’s will and long to honor him, it is our Father’s delight to bless us in mighty ways. So let’s first set our hearts to do his will. Then, let’s not be afraid to ask God to pour out his blessings on others. Then, let’s also share with him the desires of our heart. Finally, let’s not be surprised at the ways he blesses us!
O God, please show yourself to be glorious in the ways that you bless me and those that I love. Help all people to know that these blessing do not come by our wisdom, skill, or strength but from your grace. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.
