A Courageous Prayer?

How many of you would say, YES I WANT MORE?

Maybe you watched my last episode, when I talked about “Grow Through, What You Go Through,” challenging us to see that God wants to bless us WAY MORE than we can ever imagine, if we can just trust him with our pain.

And today, I want to challenge you to pray this courageous prayer…

A prayer for BLESSING that you’ll find tucked away in I Chronicles 4:10

The Prayer of Jabez….

Oh that you would bless me, expand my territory, be with me in all that I do, and keep me safe” And God granted him his request. (NLT)

You might be thinking, how’s is it COURAGEOUS to ask for God to bless you? Maybe you see that as a selfish prayer and NOT COURAGEOUS one!!!

What would you’re life look like if  God where to GRANT YOU YOUR REQUEST?

Let me ask you another way.

What if all the prayers you prayed just in this past week were all answered? Would the world around you be better or just YOUR world? And while there’s nothing wrong with asking God for a better Job, or a bigger house, because He may very well bless you that way.

But what does BLESSING even mean?

If your praying it as Jabaz did, what do you think he was crying out for when he said, OH GOD BLESS ME?

BLESSING MEANS – Divine favor and protection. 

So if your praying for God’s favor, that is when things get interesting. 

Do you have the COURAGE to pray this prayer today?

God! YOU BLESS me! In YOUR way, YOUR timing and YOUR will NOT MINE? Because when you allow God to work IN YOU, he WILL do TREMENDOUS THINGS THROUGH YOU! And bless you more than you could EVER IMAGINE!

Now to HIM who’s able to do FAR MORE than we can EVER ask or think, thank you for joining me in the adventure of discovering God’s intended MORE for YOUR life.

Thailand Was More Than An Adventure – It Was Life Changing!

Have you ever thought about all the events that led up to this moment in your life? Like all the people or things that have shaped who you are? Or why you’re here? Well when people have asked me about my trip to Thailand in 2022, I actually said, if there was ever a reason or a purpose for my life, it was amplified and affirmed in Thailand. I know that is a bold statement to make, but all the people and all the events in my life up to this point, “have” indeed shaped me and positioned me to be where I am today. That is why I say this trip was more than just an adventure, it was life changing.

WHAT’S STOPPING YOU? That was my father in laws response to me when I told him what I wanted for my life. And I will be honest, I’ve never been more annoyed yet more intrigued by someone as I was in that moment. So, at the risk of doing the same to you, I’ll ask you…
I think it’s a great question to ask yourself as you step into 2023.
