I come to You, Lord God Almighty, with a heart wide-open and ready for Your plans to unfold. Forgive me when fear rises up like a tidal wave within my soul as You lead me into unknown territory. Help me to have the strength, Lord, to cross the borders out of my zone of comfort and into the land of promise where You desire me to be. For though the journey appears perilous, You are the author of my victory. Though the road is littered with the debris of doubt, You are the whisper of assurance. Though the path is fraught with enemy attack, You are the One who has clothed me for battle. So take Your servant into the enlarged territory where Your power is magnified and Your glory reflected. Let Your mighty hand be with Your beloved so that all of Your desires for this life given me are fulfilled. Under the mighty word of 1 Chronicles 4:10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, my King, I whole-heartedly pray.
Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying,
“Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border,
and that your hand might be with me,
and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!”
And God granted what he asked.
1 Chronicles 4:10, ESV
