( By Ricky Scaparo) 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 – Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
The Lord is waiting for us to partner with him to influence the region we are put in. He wants us to impact the souls he has appointed us to. He knows where your address is, He knows your Church, Your Ministry, and your endeavors. He is raising up and anointing those in this hour with character, Those who walk in humility and honor towards those who have pioneered before.
The Lord wants us to be blessed to have influence and to impact our regions with the Gospel. To have an abundance to feed the poor, clothe the naked and help the widows. To send forth the missionaries to carry the message of the Gospel. Don’t be afraid to ask the lord to increase your influence, to enlarge your borders to stretch you beyond your capacity. To take you out of your comfort zone.
Just as the Lord was with Joshua, Moses, Noah and the list goes on of great Men of God that were hand picked and raised up to do extraordinary things for his Kingdom, The eyes of the Lord are still running to and fro over the Earth looking for someone he can show himself strong thru, who’s heart is turned towards him in this hour. You have Angels that have been dispatched on your behalf to help you accomplish your assignment! Just as the Angel of the Lord was with Joshua and prepared the way for him and was a shield and defender so shall the lord do for you and I to see that which he has entrusted us with to come to fruition!
