Now praises “to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us; to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen” (Eph 3:20, 21)
The prayer meeting was wonderful. I know that you may say: “are all your services so good?” To the glory of God the answer is ‘Yes’! How do I know the services are so good? It is because the very Person of God the Holy Spirit comes in our midst and He moves freely and un-grieved. What more can we ask? What else do we want? Nothing compares with the feeling of being found lost in God. No other love is like the Love of God! Tonight, the Holy Spirit came, wave upon wave. Like a mighty water fall. The impact and noise was so much that I could not preach. We stood in awe worshiping the King of kings. We sang and danced and prophesied…The Lord is good! All the time!
Jehovah Jireh is still manifesting mightily in our church. The following testimonies were shared this evening. These are to give glory to God, to put the devil to shame and to encourage the brethren.
1. Sister R shared how God bless them. Her husband is a carpenter. No man trained him. He just discovered that he is good working with his hands and wood. For many years they have been struggling financially. They have two small children. According to the prophetic word, they prayed that Jehovah Jireh should come and blessed their home. Two weeks ago they called her husband to present a sample of his work. Many other more ‘famous’ carpenters were there competing too. The contract is a big one. To make all the furniture to a big hotel in town. She said that ‘just like that’ they chose her husband and they are now ‘millionaires’. If a rich man came to the church he could not have chosen them to make them rich, for they are simple people. But God is not a respecter of men. To God be all the glory!
2. We needed a powerful generator for our church. We are planning to move to the new site and the industrial ACs to be used in the sanctuary need a 500KVA generator. A new one is 16 million Naira. A brother from the church saw one for sale. It is not new but it is still good. Pastor phoned the owner. When the owner heard that it was Pastor Leigh that wants to buy it, on the phone he said that he should just take it. My husband said ‘what do you mean just take it’. He said that he heard that my husband is a pastor now; that we are building a new church and he feels in his heart to ‘dash’ us his generator free of charge. That we should take it as a gift from him. Pastor Leigh has never met this man before. To God be all the glory!
God’s blessings are more than we can describe. Maybe you say that you have prayed for a long time and nothing good has happened. The road may be long but ‘just like that’ the rain of blessing comes down. God does not love us more than He loves you. God does not discriminate people. But He looks for faith in their hearts. God will surprise you with ‘much more than you ask or think’. May you come back with a basket full of testimonies! Glory to God in the highest!
