The blessings of Jabez

Most of us have a hard time asking the Creator of the universe to bless us.

I sure do.

And yet it seemed to work for Jabez. He simply asked God to bless him, and God did! So, why don’t we understand such a simple concept as this? And if we understand it, why don’t we ask to be blessed every day? Every hour? Every minute?

I have watched God bless us with amazing things. And perhaps the biggest blessings that he is giving us only happened when we asked. So whether you believe in a God who blesses you or not, why don’t you just ask? Jesus commands us to.

That seems like a good enough reason.
