1 Chronicles 4:10
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
It is likely that Jabez, a descendant of Judah, was born with some kind of disability, for his mother gave birth to him in great pain and called him Jabez, which means distress. His prayer—that he would be kept from evil (or from harm)—also indicates that he had been living with pain or with some kind of handicap.
Thus Jabez prayed to God that He would be with him, bless him, enlarge his boarders, and keep him from harm so that he would be free of pain. Whatever Jabez’ condition was, God answered his prayer and delivered him from pain and from inflicting pain on others.
What a wonderful and very personal God we have. Don’t ever think that God does not care or would not bother with your personal needs. He cares for you much more that you think He does. In fact, He loves you and cares about you more than you love yourself. And He wants you to pray about all your personal needs because he is eager to bless you.
