Reminiscing Jabez Jabez caused so much pain to his mom when being born he was named pain and lived a life of pain .. but pleaded to God .. that He enlarge his territory so he would not suffer through life . and God granted it . Jesus illustrated that the territory of the kingdom is our hearts and the hearts of others in whom the King indwells . if you're having a hard time of it . and feel the burdens in your heart are too big for the space they are contained in .. ask that God enlarge your heart .
