Don't Be Afraid to Ask - Enlarge My Territory
A few days ago I felt the need to research the meaning of "Ché"... yes, Ché is indeed the second half of my name, however, I never took the time to actually search the meaning.
Well, let me tell you, I'm so happy at what I discovered.
Ché is of Hebrew and Spanish descent with both having the meaning of God will enlarge.
WHEW! I instantly called my mom asking her if she was aware of this, and she wasn't, which I figured, because had she known I would have never heard the end of it and how my name meant I was destined for something greater.
Although I never really KNEW the meaning of my name, I always had a feeling that there was more expected of me... you ever feel like that?
Anywho, after discovering the meaning I instantly thought of that good ol church song "Enlarge My Territory".. if you've ever been to a baptist church, you know exactly which song I'm talking about, and if not, go ahead and YouTube it, it's great.
This song derived from a short but powerful prayer by Jabez (1 Chronicles 4:10)
The prayer says:
"Oh that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!"
I love this because it short, simple, sweet, and straight to the point. Jabez knew exactly what he wanted and EXPECTED from God. It also mentions in the chapter that he was far better off than his brothers, meaning he had a good heart.
God granted Jabez wishes because his heart and motivations behind the prayer were pure. He wasn't simply asking for money, but that EVERYTHING be enlarged. His heart, wisdom, finances, everything.
Today I encourage you to not be afraid to ask God to ENLARGE your territory! You have every right to expect that of God, as God wants more for us, we just have to want more for the right reasons.
What are you wanting more of?
Set your intentions and burn your Prosperity Candle to unlock what you want from God.
Peace & Blessings :)
