EXPERIENCE:  I found myself saying the name Jabez twice in my tongues tonight.  I hadn’t thought or heard of his name in years. It was such a surprise to hear the name and it was very clear through my own lips.  I knew it was the Lord.


1 Chronicles 4:9-10 And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bore him with sorrow. 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.


1 Chronicles 4:9-10 YLT

And Jabez is honoured above his brethren, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, `Because I have brought forth with grief.' 10 And Jabez calleth to the God of Israel, saying, `If blessing Thou dost bless me, then Thou hast made great my border, and Thy hand hath been with me, and Thou hast kept [me] from evil--not to grieve me;' and God bringeth in that which he asked.

When I searched my archives, I found this interesting entry.  It had several key buzz words that the Lord has been speaking to me about for this season:  Graduate, led by the Spirit, restoring faith and intimacy.  I believe it is a Word for now.




HEARD: The Lord bless you. Graduate. The first thing is that your faith should come back. And then your intimacy. And then your works. You will be Holy Spirit led. Safe harbor. Enlarged.


QUICKENED SIGN: "Coast to coast. True Value." I saw this sign today and it was quickened to me as a confirmation of hearing the Lord say, "Enlarged."



Yes, dear one, you have suffered pain in your birthing, but I have heard your prayer that you want to be blessed and be a blessing and be kept from pain and evil as you move into new places. 


There are times when you walk forward taking careful steps of faith, as I carefully build confirmations and you find your way.  There are times when you need a strong helping hand to jettison you past the impediments.  Wonderful plans I have for you, as you spring forth into enlarged territories.  I AM catapulting you up and over the places that have held you in confinement.  I will uphold you as you overcome the stumbling stones so that you not fall. 


Dare to dream big.  Give all reluctance to Me.  Don’t let what you see around you become your boundaries and limits.  Instead see the wide expanse in the distance.  Expect Me to visit you and translate you up and out of what impedes you so that it will forever be behind you. As you prepare your heart for those special times of visitation, when I catapult your faith into a higher place, you will be prepared and willing.  Then with glee, you will participate with My genuine joy as I hurl you right up over the top into climax and fruition of My Word.  Go for it, dear one, and all heaven shouts with you!


Col 1:13-14 NKJV
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.


1 Chron 4:9-10 NKJV
Now Jabez  was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez , saying, "Because I bore him in pain." And Jabez  called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested.




After soaking in this place for a few minutes, I was carried by the Spirit to another room. Everything in this room was made of pure gold. There were low tables and benches all around, each of pure gold. I had not seen this room before, but learned later that this was an equipping room. Each of us received a medium sized backpack filled with supplies. As I looked into the open backpack, I saw a very large bottle of the energy drink called vitamin water, several energy bars, various small booklets to spread the gospel of the kingdom of God and other things I did not see clearly. Then the Lord said, “It is time to extend your area of influence! It is time to extend your tent pegs! You are now equipped to go further in your mission area, and you must not delay!”


When I heard this from the Lord, I thought of Isaiah 54:2-4 (The Message Bible) “Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities. Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back—you’re not going to come up short. You’ll forget all about the humiliations of your youth, and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory.”


As we prepared to leave Heaven and enter the mission field, I remembered the prayer of Jabez, “Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez (Literally He will cause Pain, from NKJV), saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.” (1 Chronicles 4:9-10)


Think about it! God answers prayers like this. He is ready and willing to enlarge your territory! His hand will be with you! He will keep you from evil! He will help you to cause no pain and experience no pain! Think about it! All you have to do is ask! Read again the prophetic word form Isaiah 54:2-4 and claim it for yourself, your family, and your church! God is faithful! He will answer prayers like this! However, you still need to ask! Remember what Jesus said, “Ask and you will receive!” Amen and Amen!
