How many times we sit over troubles and unfortunates, or just lazy and lack to will and say: God not bless me! O! Why a have such life?! AH! If I was like that person. If I could have such luck! But no, here I'm poor of me!!
We are lazy.
Almost all of us like to moan, to murmur and weep but don’t like to wake up and do something, because murmur and put all blame in unlucky or God is easier!
So here, we find Jabez - Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my border, and that thy hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it be not to my sorrow! And God granted him that which he requested. 1Chronicle 4:9,10
A cursed man, since his births. His mother, in her pain, do not limited word to send over him and to declare a bad life outside of the blessing from the Lord.
However Jabez, whom had no few reasons to be sad and grumpy, in a moment of despair, no weep nor to murmur, just cry out God and say:
- bless me – I don’t accept what I have now.
- enlarge my path – I have few things, I need more.
- keep me from harm – so I will be free from pain.
Amazing! Instead weep we see a good faith declaration! Jabez cried to God, the one whom could change his bad fate. The life brought to him few things and he needed more, and he knew that just You, OH God could bring to him, what he had not!
This man lived in pain. His life was no good then, he cried and changed his way!
What you need now?
Impossible thing for men! Good because you have the One whom to cry…
…cry to Jesus, He will change your fate. All that I say for you today, no more to murmur about your way. There are a God whom love you and will help you.
Now you can choose weep or cry in faith to God change your destine!
Yes, if today you cry, your life no more will be the same.
