“Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that all POWER belongs to God” (Ps 62:11)
This is our (continuing) praise report:
(Please read the first part of the testimony bellow)
The seats for our church were to leave the port on Friday. Because of the hindrance coming from the difficult ‘official’ (let’s call him DO), we may have to pay demurrage for a day or two. That is about $700 per day, a lot of money…When another custom official (higher in rank than DO) heard about our challenges, he phoned Pastor that he will help; that if there is any demurrage, he will personally pay the bills. He said that he is a child of God. That when he heard that we were medical doctors, that we resigned our jobs to do God’s work, he was so touched that he felt he has to go the extra mile to help. He rebuked DO saying that they who are not ready to resign their jobs to become pastors, the least they can do is to support the ones who sacrificed their careers for the work of God. He also said that he met DO for the first time last Monday, when both attended a function at Ikoy Club. That was the same day when DO blocked our containers.
Please see how God made the crooked paths straight even before we knew that they were crooked! He apologized for his colleague and volunteered to intervene and help clear the containers without any charges or problems again. If you live in Nigeria, you know that this is a mighty miracle, for in places like these, corruption is too high for mercy to have a voice. But we serve the Living God! He is the Controller and the Judge of the universe! This matter could have ended in much pain, but God intervened and it became now a praise report! Never fear a difficulty! It is the platform of a mighty testimony, for God to bless more people that you could have imagined! Also give praise to God Almighty, the good and faithful God, who solved the problem before it even began! God bless this brother in Christ who works in the customs! He decided to do much more than his official duty, for the sake of God!
“Those who trust in the Lord
Are like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
On the land allotted to the righteous,
Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
As for such as turn aside to their crooked ways,
The Lord shall lead them away
With the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel!” (Ps 125)
For the past six weeks we have been doing warfare based on Psalm 125 in our prayer meetings in the church. What we have studied in the class room, became the Living Word in reality. This testimony is a proof that as a church we move in the center of the prophetic will of God! To God be all the glory!
May the anointing of Psalm 125 be your portion, in the name of Jesus! May God’s protection surround you, your family and ministry! May God free you from the oppressive authority of the wicked! May your enemies be disappointed!
God will do you good! God will give you peace!
PRAISEEEEEE THE LOOOORDDDDD!!!!!!
In Jesus name,
