- 1 Chronicles 4:1-5:26
God answered the prayer of Jabez to expand his borders. The Reubenites, Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh cried out to God in battle, and He answered their cries. And the half tribe of Manasseh turned away from God. I do the same. I recognize Him, I ask Him for more, and I cry out in battle. He provides, He expands, and He answers. And like the toddler who threatens to run away from home, I walk out of the yard and forget the One who cares for me.
Let’s be different. Let’s remember our God. Let’s keep Him in our sight that we may stay in His boundaries. Because here’s the thing: Our God always welcomes us back.
