Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.”

(1 Chronicles 4:10)

ليتك تباركني وتوسع تخومي وتكون يدك معي وتحفظني من الشر حتى لا يتعبني فأتاه الله بما سأل

(أخبار الأيام الأول 4: 10)

The expression “and God granted his request” is so beautiful. God has a great desire and longing to bless us with the fullness of the blessing that is in His mind. There is a daily blessing that God wants to bless us with, and there is divine preparation and shaping that God wants to accomplish in our lives for the establishment of the blessing in our lives. He wants to expand our territories and the limits of our usefulness. He urges and encourages us kindly to go outside the safety zone that we have become accustomed to by taking courageous steps of faith. His hand, strength and testimony is with us, for just like He was with Moses He will be with us, therefore let us be encouraged and strengthened as He commands us as He commanded Joshua, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9). In our obedience and submission to His commandment He promised to protect us from all evil so it does not trouble us. God has the ability and multiple means to keep us from the world, from evil, that is if we are well aware of the awesomeness and power of His presence in our lives and to hearing His voice that guides and directs our steps to an opening that is endless.
