1 Chronicles 4 vs
9》》 “And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.”~》》KJV》
THERE is a beautiful song that says “I am not moved by what I see; I am not moved by what I hear, I am not moved by circumstances; but I am only moved by the word of God.”Many sing it without living the truth of it. Because everything you believe will be tested by diverse situations. Many are moved by what they see, hear and circumstances. *But the New Creation is not supposed to live like that.* When you are moved only by your senses, you are called a carnal Christian. And when carnality moves you, you’ll make decisions based on feelings or situations you go through, and not based on divine revelation.
In this life, aside making circumstantial decision, there is a kind of decision that’s based on the revelation of God’s word encountered. Our focal text unveils that a certain mother named his son “Jabez” because she bore him in sorrow. Jabez means sorrow. The mother allowed the import of that sorrowful moment affected the baby’s destiny. Many people, tribes and families have adopted this strategy. That’s why we hear all sort of names. Some carry good meaning based on positive atmosphere. Some too convey an atmosphere of sadness, sorrow and pains.
The Name Jesus means Salvation; Christ also means the Anointed One, the Messiah. So when you observe the life of Jesus Christ, His assignment was defined in His Name. Also, Mary went through a lot of shame when she got pregnant as a virgin but God had given the unborn Child a heavenly Name; So Mary accepted the Name Jesus based on divine revelation not based on the circumstances she went through (Matthew 1:18-21). Cherished one, live your life and make decisions based on the revelation of God’s word, not based on the challenges you go through. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Gracious Father of All true wisdom, I thank You for given me glorious insight and foresight through Your word. I am enlightened to make great decisions based on the revelation of Your word, not based on the circumstances I go through. I therefore enjoy the benefits of the revelation of Your unfailing word in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen !
◇ Enjoy A Fruitful Monday◇
Pray that God’s Spirit would always empower you to make decisions based on divine revelation.
