“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. 10And 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.” I Chronicles 4:9-10
We were all born into sorrow. This world insists that we are to let all the things of our past and everything we did, be pinned on us. The experts of our day tell us all those things from our past life are what make us today. That may be true for unredeemed people, but you and I are born again. We are brand new creatures. So say good bye to that old life and live in newness of life.
