From the Presiding Bishop
Dearly beloved, on this Workers Appreciation and Awards Sunday, I come to remind you that as believers, we can truly make all the difference in our world for the kingdom if we dare go the extra mile. We can truly impact our world if we dare. When Jesus walked the face of the earth, His mandate was to do the Fathers’ will? Little wonder He was able to say ‘’It is finished’’ while He hung on the cross.
“And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets”….
“Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified” .
Confessions for the Week
The Spirit of truth abides in me and teaches me all things and He guides me into all truth therefore I confess I have perfect knowledge of every situation and every circumstance that come up against me for I have the wisdom of God (John 16:13; James 1:5). I trust in the Lord with all my heart and I lean not unto my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him and He directs my path (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Testimonies in brief ...
I want to thank God for a successful surgery, which I had to undergo for the removal of a lump. Big Mummy counselled me and prayed for me and to the glory of God, everything went well.
My salary was not paid alongside other staff and I found out that my bosses had placed me on suspension for no apparent reason. God did terrible things in righteousness and delivered me; all my benefits were restored with nothing broken, nothing missing.
Halleluyah!!! February 10th, exactly one year ago, the devil had wanted to take my life but the God of all grace had mercy on me. I thank Almighty God for giving me another chance to live again.
I decided to be a part of October Fast 2012; to fast, pray and believe God for the impossible. I got a call from a company I did not apply to, to come for an interview. To God be the glory, a week after the interview, I was called to come and pick up my employment letter for a job in a Multinational company.
He took us from a very humble beginning to where we are now. The results of each year’s theme are clearly visible in our lives, particularly in 2012 (tagged the year of Greater Glory) as eight out of twelve prayer requests were fully granted.
As a child I could have been long forgotten because I suffered from a terrible case of measles when I was just 7 months. It took the grace and mercy of God for me to survive. The pain will not allow me to narrate what my mum told me, concerning my childhood.
The G12 Fellowship has helped me get closer to God and serve Him in spirit and in truth. I am grateful to God for His direction and grace upon my life.
For me, marriage was trouble. I had seen the experience of my parents, uncles and aunties but contact with TREM married couples in my G12 fellowship healed my mind. Today, to the glory of God, I am engaged and will be married this year.
We took my two year grandchild to a hospital where the doctors said she would have to be operated. I decided to bring her to church where all the pastors prayed for her at length. After three days, she was discharged without any operation! I thank God!
My wife and I were planning to travel to Dublin but thank God for Big Mummy that said we should stay back for a while. In the space of few months, God bombarded my wife and I with a big business that yielded so much. The rest is history. Thank You Jesus!
I was scheduled for a surgery to remove a lump on my left breast but Big Daddy prayed for me. On the day of surgery, the doctor tried to locate the lump before cutting me open; behold he couldn’t locate it. He called the attention of the second doctor and they couldn’t find it!
I want to say a very big thank you to TREM Family for standing by us during our challenges, and I ask God whom we all serve to meet you all at their very point of needs in Jesus name.
I was rushed to hospital as I had symptoms of a stroke. As I was entering the car, unstable and dragging one leg, I told God to bring me back home walking normally. He did.
I had been diagnosed with typhoid about two weeks back and in my entire life, I had never been so sick that I couldn’t walk, eat or breathe fresh air. I did not know that my day of healing would be the ground breaking on October 1st 2012.
My son was taken away 3 years ago by the police for what he knew nothing about. He was later incriminated and charged for robbery but he was innocent. To God be the glory, my son was discharged and acquitted last September 2012.
It had been my desire to join the Federal Civil Service but it looked very difficult. To God be all the glory, I got a job as a Staff Nurse/ Midwife even though so many other Orthopaedic Nurses were not taken.
