Have you ever heard of jabez? Well in Hebrew that means pain and for a mother to name her son pain is not a good thing. Can you imagine going through life being named pain. I thought Peter was bad.
He believed in the God of Moses who delivered the people and knew that he served a powerful God and he simply asked God to bless him indeed. Many times we do not have because we do not ask.
When wa the last time that you asked God to bless you?
