 Moderator's Message Minimize

"And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren:
and his mother called his name Jabez, saying,
because I bare him with sorrow.

"And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying,
Oh that thou wouldst bless me indeed, and enlarge
my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and
that thou wouldst keep me from evil, that it may
not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested"
I CHRONICLES 4:9,10


The power of prayer can never be overestimated. In the "Jabez" story, he clearly states his desire to refrain from evil and recognizes that he needs help. His prayer embodies confidence in the God of Israel as a listener with power to grant the blessing, and confidence that with spiritual strength, he can overcome human weakness.

Jabez'prayer embodies his own desire and willingness to accept personal responsibility as a man for his own actions. He did not abdicate. Jabez personal desires were completely congruent with Divine Will and so his prayer request was granted because he was "more honourable than his brethren".

Jabez was strengthened through this to accomplish his heart's desires without hurt to others, without plundering. He had learned from birth that pain to others (painful childbirth for his mother) causes reciprical grief. He did not want to invite more of the same. He understood the concept of sowing and reaping and lived by it, with faith and trust in a loving God who hears and answers prayer.

Psalm 1, verses 1,2,3 & 6, expresses a similar concept, as that which compelled Jabez:

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

"But his delight is in the law of the LORD: and in his law he doth meditate day and night.

"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."

"For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish."

We hope "the way" is changed for good, and therefore "the ungodly way" shall perish, and the sinner is saved. Ungodly ways may seem to work, sometimes. There are many "crashes" in high financial places, and some lose their life because their "life blood" was "blood money" acquired through ungodly ways.

Others leave a legacy of help for the needy and for generations not yet born.

Apostle Paul (Romans 12:1) extols us to "be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what isthat good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God"

In Ephesians 5:8,9,10, Apostle Paul clarifies how to accomplish the above:

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:

"(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

"Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord."

In Ephesians 6, verses 10-18, he continues with intensity:

"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

He describes the whole armour of God as follows:
"Loins girt with truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet shod with gospel of peace, sheild of faith, helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and all perseverence."

When we choose to be congruent with Divine Will. prayer is answered in wonderful and mysterious ways. AMEN



I CAN, BECAUSE I OUGHT, AND WITH GOD'S HELP I WILL.
