Jabez was honorable above his brothers; but his mother named him Jabez [sorrow maker], saying, Because I bore him in pain. Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and You would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me! And God granted his request.”
1 Chronicles 4:9-10 AMPC
In other for Jabez to experience a turn around in his life. His personal confession about himself had to change.
Most believers confessions over themselves is not in line with God’s Word over their life . Two cannot move together unless agree. God’s hand could not be with Jabez unless Jabez himself was willing to agree with God’s counsel over his life. God never told us to hold fast to our challenges, circumstances ,unforgiveness but He told us to hold fast to the profession of our faith.
SO THEN, brethren, consecrated and set apart for God, who share in the heavenly calling, [thoughtfully and attentively] consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith].” Hebrews 3:1 AMPC
That is why the Bible says
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]. [Matt. 12:37.]” Proverbs 18:21 AMPC
Today speak life to your circumstances in Jesus name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. I command God’s wind of life to blow over my circumstances in Jesus name. Amen
