Jabez he had a goal ()Pastor Mary, 16 February 2020
1Chron 4v9-10 and Rom 5v3-4.
Fear can paralyse us. Some people can confuse laziness with contentment. They may say, I'm serving the Lord in my own way, that's how it is, I don't have time...
Jabez had no special abilities, talent, anointing or gift. The Bible doesnt mention much about him, he is just an ordinary person. But he had the faith to to believe, trust God and prayed - enlarge my tent. He didnt let his background, rejection from his brothers and family get in the way of his goal - he was a man on a mission.
Mark 9v23 everything is possible to him who believes.
