PRAISE REPORT

 

 

Yesterday we had a wonderful Holy Communion service. Pastor Leigh preached a wonderful prophetic sermon based on Psalm 27. The Word of God commands us to be strong and courageous! We ended the year with prayer, praise and prophetic utterances.

This morning, a sister who attends the church sent me a beautiful testimony of the power of the Word of God.

 

Dear Malia and Tali,

I’m grateful to God for His word that came through yesterday.. It was a reminder of His faithfulness and never ending love.

In 1997, as a student, I’d dedicated my life to Jesus the year before but very much a baby and ignorant concerning God’s word and the sweet guide of the Holy Spirit. Our hostels were poorly managed; light bulbs were hardly replaced so hallways were dark especially at night.

 

Somehow, I’d managed not using the bathrooms at night.. I was scared of the dark until this night that I was so pressed but the fear kept me in bed.. I kept praying for dawn or at least sound of someone else steps so I could tag along. My roommates were mostly in their finals, couldn’t wake any of them to go with me.

Then, in my heart, I heard psalms 27… I ignored the voice.. Still lying down very distressed Psalm 27 came again.. I brushed it off.. Then the voice completely filled my thoughts.. In frustration, I wondered what psalm 27 was all about and decided to look it up, maybe the thoughts would leave me… Brought out my bible which I hardly ever opened except during fellowship, once or twice a week.. Looked through the contents, got the page number and flipped to Psalm 27…I read…

“The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear

The LORD is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid…”

 

In shock, I read it again… Instantly, I was bold.. I walked out of my room majestically, no rush, no turning of head to see if anything was coming to get me. I felt like true princess… The hallway, bathrooms were dark but it didn’t matter anymore, The LORD is my light!!!

In fact, I had a challenging attitude to fear..” Come if u dare”

Continued my majestic walk back to my room, I prayed and thanked God.. I slept well.

 

The experience never left me. I’m grateful for God’s love and His word that never fails…

 

Truly grateful,

Your daughter in Christ…
