Just recently, I took a professional exam. The beginning of the exam was pretty easy for me. However, when I got to its ending, practical section, I was faced with tough questions, which left me feeling stuck and distress. At that point, I sensed discouragement and doubt creeping in. As the doubt loomed, an inner voice within me urged me to speak prophetically to the situation. When I begun to do so, I suddenly started to feel at ease and gain control over the situation. Someway, somehow, I was inspired enough to solve that daunting problem in a timely fashion. After that exam, I just thanked God and left everything I had done into His hands. Fortunately, when the results were released, I found out that I had passed. I want to give the glory and praise to the Almighty God for seeing me through the “thick and thin” of that exam, and giving me good success. Hallelujah!
I was laid off from work at the end of this past October. Following that unfortunate incident, things became quite hard for me, not knowing what to do next. In my moment of despair, I realized the need to talk with few others, including Deacon Niran Haastrup. During my conversation with Deacon Haastrup, he prayed with me and inspired me to believe God for a seventh day miracle. Exactly five days after that prayer, I was called back to work. Getting my job back was something I have considered as the doing of the LORD; and for that reason, I want to thank Him for His goodness and faithfulness toward me. Praise the LORD!
About ten years ago, I transferred to a college in the U.S. from my initial college back in my home country (Nigeria). Towards the end of my Bachelor’s degree, I began applying to medical schools. However, my academic adviser at the time suggested that I was not sufficiently qualified to go to medical school because my academic record was split between the U.S. and Nigeria. However, I ignored her suggestions and eventually got accepted to medical school.
Whilst in medical school, I rose to become the most outstanding student in my class, and my school waived the cost of tuition (~ $250, 000) for my entire four years. At the end of medical school, I decided to apply for a residency in a competitive specialized field. Again, I was advised to apply for less competitive programs since there was no precedent for students like me getting accepted. However, to the glory of God, I was accepted into one of the best hospitals in the country. Our God is great!
Recently, I was exercising on the treadmill under the supervision of my cardiologist when my heart rate spiked to a dangerously-high level. As a result of this spike, the doctor decided to abruptly end the session in order to forestall any damage to my heart. However, I tried to reassure him that there was nothing wrong and that the spike was just a result of the stress from the exercise. He (the doctor) was not convinced and referred me to another specialist who would evaluate my heart. I just want to thank God that the results from my most recent tests revealed that there is nothing wrong with my heart. Our God is faithful!
I wanted to have the experience of a Study-Abroad program, but I did not know how to access funding for the trip. I considered applying for scholarships that would fund my travel, but my past failures with scholarship applications made me lose hope that I would be selected this time. However, I saw a recent advert calling for submissions for the trip. The advert also stated that the winner would be selected by a raffle draw. Therefore I reluctantly submitted my application very close to the deadline. To the glory of God, I was selected from the raffle, and my trip for the Study-Abroad program will be funded! Our God is great!
Some time ago, my brother began using narcotics and, invariably, became addicted. As a result of his addiction, he left our house and began living on the streets. At some point, my family lost contact with him, but we continued to pray for his recovery and safe return. After praying and searching for some time, God orchestrated events so that my mom would be in contact with a police officer who had located my brother on the streets. My family then arranged him to be admitted to a hospital, and, last year, my brother finally came home! Our God is the great redeemer!
I graduated in December 2014 and, within a week, got an employment offer from a company in the Oil & Gas industry. However, given the recent turmoil in the Industry, I was laid off abruptly from the company. I then had to start my employment search from the beginning. By the grace of God, I found an advert for a company whose hiring process was going to take only 2 weeks. I applied, went for the interview, and now have a very good offer to start working. Our God is faithful!
My grand-mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had to start the requisite chemotherapy regimen. I recently checked up on her to find out if she began to suffer any of the expected side effects, such as hair loss. To the glory of God, she looks very healthy and is not suffering any side effects. I thank God for His goodness and trust Him for complete healing.
