Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. – 1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV)
This Jabez guy wasn’t timid! All he asked for were Blessings, Land, Guidance, Protection, and Health. And guess what? God gave it to him. Ask God boldly for important things that are clearly in his will for your life. Don’t shy away from opportunity and success.
