July when Miss Dr. Tony Evans says when the Lord blesses you, you'll know what is God help with this is the alternative Dr. Tony have another speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative.
What's the point in wanting when we don't appreciate what we already have Dr. Evans answers that question today as he explains how to ask God for a blessing that will not only change your new year, but the rest of your life. Let's turn to first Chronicles chapter 4 as we join him.
This is known as the prayer of Jabez's reads this way and honorable than his brothers named him Jabez's saying because all him with pain as called on God of Israel, saying all that you would bless me indeed in large knob or the that my hand might be with me and that you would keep me from harm that it might not paying me and God granted him what he requested introduced to Jacob as in verse nine as a man honorable than his brothers. All of his brother simply were listed by name, Jacob as his lips and out is because of his prayer is simple. One of those prayer made him more than his brothers will bring you a simple breakdown of the prayer don't move too fast for you missed significant were told in verse nine that his mother named him Jabez because he was born in pain. Jabez means pain because they were ciao painful.
Don't know what scenario cause her to name her baby boy. All I know is that time everybody knew something was this child and its implications in the light, no way I could not be reminded that he was living painful existence because I just meant that he was living a life of pain. Talk about self-esteem problems you talk about a negative self-image. This kid had his name is Jabez, or maybe not in the literal sense where people call you that this year or perhaps over the last few years. It might as well be Jabez all you can remember.
All you can remember the one after another, like you I would never let you go all the Jabez's house to Jacob. As you look Jabez in the house somebody whose first name, last name, middle name all three names.
They disappointment, anguish, loneliness, depression, frustration, and Adriana Eddie all syncretic possibilities.
This passage is for you because were introduced to the solution be fully says that all ruts because the boy, NJ. Somebody did this unit's honorable status problems when any problems at all. Nothing negative about any of the brothers were okay boys, disappointment, the one with all the negatives about the struggles God's absolute read through the boring section of Scripture let you know if you have the last word of life situation painful.
You can be able to get this painful person in all circumstances, be strong individual notice and I was talking another thing that was well from being overloaded so well into the background as God the forefront of young circumstances change your situation, it won't matter what your babies is the status of his prayer is that you would bless me indeed, indeed, lets us know the stories. This is not a casual. Now I lay me down to sleep my soul to keep casual prayer. Indeed, my situation if you want this world because the gradual sleep asked me in the state will likely keep going like it wanted to sense the plantation of supernatural thing. The blast is filled with natural law injected don't like all hymns glory and muscle go through every day painful routine that God has done in my business scenario is not situation. They said bless me indeed get me another life like I don't want to get away from only call me Jabez remind me on the situation.
I don't want to call me Jabez and remind me that I can't even go to work when I haven't pain but give me another life to bless me and take it back the next week shall stay with me. My.that will go me and, indeed, bless me the spiritual thing that comes along for God. Notice the specific bless me indeed and Liesel, could you say when you want to know you'll take anything not giving you the particulars of God is data that the situation you with open bless me and is up to the ship, says that your hand might be with me.
In other words, I don't want your blessing and not have you to want to really interested in blessing us and an expanded Morton's was built into ever bless every blessing is you become all things, so you no longer need the hassle to get this right. I want you to bless me. I want to expand my business. I want to do it wanted to expand my education. I want to water it will expansion that excludes you blessing when you live with the blessed one, a blessing that excludes you Moses said, I'll go with me. I won't go every night is real nice to have the 10 of the 10 plagues know if you want us one more blessing that some blast happiness with joy that was miserable, but no joy when we suspended the Bible let you know when you've been blessed comes from nonstop law that expands you will it give you the way you gonna come from God.

You know all excuses when God says you can say I won't be a little bit more accurate but still this is because the price pray for precious blood in the kingdom of God. No more excuse this all comes down to the God granted him what he request is good news that Wortley was paying pain called on God.
