A JABEZ APPOINTMENT FROM GOD
My wife taught a lesson on Jabez Prayer Sunday and I share with
permission what I call a Jabez appointing my friend and Tennessee State
Bishop of the COGOP encountered yesterday.
First, join me in reading I Chronicles 4:9-10.
9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called
his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest
bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with
me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!
And God granted him that which he requested.
Ec McKinley <https://www.facebook.com/ec.mckinley> "Just arrived
safely for the TeamUP conference. While traveling through Southern
Illinois today we came upon a terrible accident. Man driving a pickup
truck, pulling a trailer lost control in the strong winds. He rolled the
truck when the trailer jackknifed. Vehicle was upside down when it came
to a stop and driver was trapped. Several other men tried to open the
drivers side, but top was crushed. I tried to get into the passenger
side and could only see his right leg. I tried to get an answer from him
to see if he was alive...no response, I prayed for him, not know if he
could hear me.
There were weapons all scattered along with several different calibers
of ammo. I collected and secured them and turned them over to law
enforcement when they arrived on the scene. Lifeflight arrived along
with other medical personnel and they were only able to extricate the
man using the "Jaws of Life" tools. I stayed and offered to minister to
the first responders. I helped to hold the sheets that shield passersby
from a view of the victim and then helped them cover the body. Once the
man was pronounced dead by the coroner I returned on our trip here.
Lesson in all of this? Our life is like a vapor....it can be snuffed out
in a moment of time, and we should all make sure we have a relationship
with God. No doubt this man (from Washington State) had no plan of dying
on a stretch of interstate today...but it happened. The driver behind
him told me that he saw the accident and it happened so fast.
Please, please, make sure everything is right in your heart with
God...it's the ONLY thing that really matters in moments like this."
I shared with Bishop McKinley that "You had an appointment and you
ministered. Praise the Lord you were willing and ready. So, sad, for the
death, when given appointment by God we never know when or where.
I ask you today are you ready to minister when given an appointment by
God. God knows who to call upon and I want to be ready when he makes an
I wish space would allow more that my wife taught but we were really
challenged as she taught under the anointing. God bless you as you
listen to God.
"If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1John 1:9
