 From Exodus 23 - Borders

You may have heard of the ‘The Prayer of Jabez’: “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory.” Maybe you have prayed it for yourself or for your family. I have. Knowing that God was not displeased with his request – that He granted it – encourages us to pray it.

I noticed something this morning that may change the way I approach that request. In Exodus 23, the nation of Israel is being prepped to move into and take possession of the land God has for them. He describes the extent of the borders He has set for them. “Little by little” they will take possession of it.

It may not be as much a need for God to “enlarge’ our borders as much as it is for us to move in and possess the borders He has already established. From now on, that will be my prayer.
