Sermons on 1 Chronicles
God wants to make a difference in your life, so that you can make a difference in the lives of others. God wants to work in you, with you, through you and for you to manifest His glory in your life. Several years ago, author Bruce Wilkinson detailed this biblical teaching in a book about a man named Jabez. In this message, Dr. Merritt unwraps what we can learn from the brief, 80-word biography of Jabez in the Bible. You wouldn't have thought that Jabez would have amounted to very much. His name literally means, "he who gives pain." His is among more than 500 other names in the first few chapters of 1 Chronicles--yet he is remember not for what he did, but for what he prayed.
God wants to bless your life, but there is a catch, he blesses the lives of those who stay close to him.
Through the character of Jabez, the sermon captures how one can turn problems into opportunities thru Faith in God.
We are anointed to win, empowered to succeed, and impossible to curse. We are truly blessed beyond the curse!
