Intro: Life and Prayer of Jabez


“A man whose soul never “calls,” never cries, never looks, never waits upon God, is not living to the end for which a man should live; he is not truly living at all.” Bible Illustrator the lifestyle of waiting upon the Lord… this waiting upon the Lord is something that  completely out of style. The kind of life that an ordinary person lives – day in and day out (I acknowledge) is extremely difficult. Especially if you’re putting in a completely masked out work week. The only time you have is a little window on Sunday morning. But I believe if we truly want to live – making the time to live in this posture of waiting upon the Lord will be worth it! Our study of the Jabez Prayer is going to help jump start this lifestyle. 1 Chronicles 4:10 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 …

Small stuff matters


As the creator and ruler of all that is, God is in control of everything. He is Lord over all. He holds the world in the palm of his hand. But sometimes we forget to remember that he is not only concerned about the big things of life, but he is equally concerned about the little things – even the little things happening in our lives. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.Matthew 10:29-31 God watches over the tiniest most insignificant things in our lives. The word translated penny in our text is used proverbially to signify a very little thing. It is also rendered as a little piece of money and was the common prize of two sparrows. In fact, in the book of Luke, five sparrows were sold for two pennies, which makes them somewhat cheaper still (12:6). This …

A passionate Tozer Prayer


O Lord, I have heard Thy voice and was afraid. Thou hast called me to an awesome task in a grave and perilous hour. Thou are about to shake all nations and the earth and also heaven, that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. O Lord, our Lord, Thou has stopped to honor me to be Thy servant. No man takes this honor upon himself save he that is called of God as was Aaron. Thou has ordained me Thy messenger to them that are stubborn of heart and hard of hearing. They have rejected Thee, the Master, and it is not to be expected that they will receive me, the servant. My God, I shall not waste time deploring my weakness nor my unfittedness for the work. The responsibility is not mine but Thine. Thou hast said, “I knew thee—I ordained thee—I sanctified thee,” and Thou has also said, “Thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.” Who am I to argue …
