“Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen Heb 11:1”
Last week I went to visit my friend and I had a cut on my hand so we branched a chemist to buy plaster to protect the opening. As I entered the chemist store she looked around and she said if every body was like me, I wonder how this stores would cope ( Earn their living). She told me how her lifestyle changed when she heard her pastor thanking God at the beginning of this year saying it’s been 365 days without drugs.
She made up her mind, telling herself she also could live without drugs, cause she’d taken drugs for even trivial ailments, and now she’s living healthy without drugs. Glory be to God.
Listening to her I remember what God did for me and I shared it with her, my testimony surprised her so here I am sharing it with you. This testimony is to strengthen you, encourage you and make you know that Gods faithfulness is available to all and salvation is for every one.
When I was on campus, during my first semester exams I read a whole week with very minimal rest, before now I had been feeling feverish and realized I had symptoms of malaria, but I paid no attention to it and tried my best to study and write the exams and I prayed that the sickness would come after my exams , it never occurred to me to ask instead for total healing.
My final paper was practical physics I was so weak such that I laid my head before we even started the exams , I wrote that paper by the Grace of God and was carried out of the exam hall back to the hostel. I’m not a drug person naturally, so I didn’t take drugs the symptoms till I got worst, but after the exams I took them , I took them later than i should have because I had emaciated within a space of three days. It was that terrible.
When I recovered, I told God I didn’t want to take drugs anymore and since then five years ago he answered my prayers cause I don’t even know the taste of aspirin or any pain relief drug, though sometimes I fall ill but I remember that I need to hold unto my faith in God I might not get instantly healed but I definitely get better without the drugs. It’s been the Grace of God not because I’m perfect, better, more Righteous…. Nope it’s been his mercies and every day I’m grateful for the gift of life given me.
So I know faith in God does wonders, that’s why I keep trusting him even when things seem unbearable and difficult to understand.
