In this economy we need a sense of security both emotionally and physically, and our finances play a huge role. Even for those of us who have a steady paycheck coming in, the sense of security is still not there.
That's when you have to stop searching externally for your blessings, and start looking from WITHIN.
Here's my testimony:
I have been working a state job for over six years. During that time I have not received a descent raise.
To get an increase in pay with the State -- my options were:
To get a promoted from within was not an easy task. I would apply but started noticing the interviewer was hiring friends and family members -- it was political.
Applying for a another job is challenging if you are over the age of 50.
In the meantime gas has gone up, the cost of food has gone up, everything has gone up except my salary.
The atmosphere at my job was becoming really negative, and it was hard being there emotionally and physically. I was being treated unjustly, and was beginning to feel resentful.
Thats when I recorded the words of the Prayer of Jabez. Whenever I started feeling resentment, I would listen to the words of the Prayer of Jabez over and over again.
Gradually, I started to regain my sense of security deep from within, even when externally everything appeared bleak. When my job was intentionally doing things to hurt me, blocking me from getting promotions that I deserved, it did not bother me. It was as if a shield was around me, and I knew that shield was GOD!!!
As I continued to listen and repeat the words of the Prayer of Jabez, and started FEELING and BELIEVING, miraculously I started externally seeing my blessings, in every aspect of my life.
If you are going through a similar situation, I challenge you to download and listen to the words of the Prayer of Jabez. Listen to the words daily, to the point that when you're not listening, you can still hear it in your head.
REPEAT IT, FEEL IT, BELIEVE IT, and you will start receiving your blessings!!!!!
