I simply like listening to testimonies of how God has moved in people’s lives. I can actually stay put the whole day, just grasping on the goodness and faithfulness of God in transforming lives. Testimonies are an indicator that God is at work and He is always willing, to do what is beyond our reach. The bible is full of instances, where God moved beyond mankind expectations, from changing the norm of nature like separating the red sea, to raising the dead, healing the sick and providing in time of need where there was no hope of any rescue.
On this post, I will focus on an important aspect that we all need to embrace, which is prayer. Prayer is our gateway, to tap into what God has in store for us, which is power from Heaven to Earth, On a personal level, without prayer, I can hardly write this blog, I cannot hear God in terms of His instructions and steps I ought to take and I cannot be in any position, to share the testimony am going to share with you on this post.
Roughly 2 months ago, God blessed my baby sister with her second baby, a beautiful bouncing girl. I was super excited for the new addition in our family and on the following day, I was at the Hospital to hold my niece with a heart full of gratitude to God, for taking my sister through the delivery process. On that day of my visit, she was discharged with her baby, after the Doctors gave her a clean bill of health.
Few days later, after her discharge, she actually called me, to stand with her in prayer; she was having serious migraines, which could not go, even after taking medication. I stood with her in prayer and decreed and declared the word of God, over her life. When the migraines persisted, she went for medical checkup but the migraines did not cease. For me, this was not okay and I knew for sure it was war-fare, which I had to stand in the gap for my sister. The following day after she visited her Doctor, we spoke on phone and her condition had not changed. I kept the faith that she will be okay, considering she was still breastfeeding.
When I got home, God instructed me to switch off my phone and spend time with Him. I literally did that, but while I was praying, there was real war fare, my sister’s condition got worse and she had to be rushed to hospital unconscious. All along, I could not be reached as my phone was off but it was off, because I was doing serious business on my knees. No matter how much my family members tried to call me, I had no solution but the one I was speaking to had the solution in healing my sister. If I had not obeyed the promptings of God to switch off my phone, all manner of distractions would have been inevitable which would have prompted me, to panic and get into a place of fear and worry.One thing we all need to understand is: relying on your emotions while in prayer, your mind will wonder and get distracted than focused , which is always a ploy the enemy uses to divert focus and that’s why my phone had to be off, at that particular time.
While I was in prayer, God woke my sister from her hospital bed, where she had been unconscious for some hours .After the ordeal God ministered to me in His His word in Romans 8:26-28 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.MSG:-TRANSLATION. This is a clear indicator my eternal best friend, Holy Spirit who is our Helper is always at work, when we speak in tongues, praying for situations which are beyond our control.I had no power to heal my sister but Today as i share this testimony, my sister is completely whole,she is nursing her baby well and they are doing perfectly well.
Take note:-For any electronic gadget to work, it has to be plugged in to a source of power to work. The same applies to us Christians, for us to enjoy the supernatural here on earth, we have to be plugged in to God who is our source through prayer. Unless your faith is stretched in prayer, you will never experience the power of God in your life and conditions that are beyond you. The power of prayer is not the result of the person praying,rather, the power resides in the God who is being prayed to. One thing I came to learn from this experience is, when it’s your time to spend with God, switch off your phone,switch off that Tv,switch off anything that is a distraction and entrust God with your life and people around you Those few hours you spend time with Him, will actually change a whole lot of stuff that is beyond you, than you receiving calls or texts which will distort your focus.
