This week’s teaching on our Blog talk radio show shares from Psalm 34
Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. 3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. 6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
1 Chronicles 4:10 reads, “Jabez prayed to the God of Israel, “Please bless me and give me more territory. May your power be with me and free me from evil so that I will not be in pain.” God gave him what he prayed for. (God’s Word Translation)
Are you praying for increase in your life? Is your conversation with God such that you’d get what you’re asking for? Do you realize that in this prayer, Jabez made a petition based on what he heard, not really even knowing God for himself and God answered him? I know we’re asking a lot of questions but we’ve got to know that God is waiting on a conversation from us about that which He’s already spoken concerning us – He wants to increase us but are we ready??
Here is the recording of the broadcast – please forgive us for the technical difficulties!!!
