Under the Influence
You have to get under the influence of God so you can have more influence for God. Jabez asks for more influence. As God’s blessings increase in our lives, we ask for and experience greater opportunity to influence the world around us for Him. God has the power to bless us greatly, and He also has the power to open doors of opportunity for us to make a difference. We want to walk through doors that only He can open, and He responds when we specifically ask Him to give us more influence for His Name. Pray for more influence. Knowing that God can make a way, trust in Him to open doors and lead you on the best path for your life and for His glory.
Scripture: 1 Chronicles 4:10
“Enlarge my territory...”
“God, make me effective in my sphere of influence, and open new doors for me to be able to influence and reach even more people (name any particular areas where you’d like to have more influence). Help me to be a good steward of the responsibility You’ve entrusted to me. I pray for greater territory to impact for Your glory.”
