Read today’s testimony below as sent in by a KFBer:
The mercies of the Lord endure for ever. God preserved my life.
To many my testimony may look small but to me it was the mighty hand of God.
I was traveling from one of d far distance towns in Oyo state to a town near Lagos.
I had already planned and committed the journey into the hand of God,
yet some delays in Ibadan and from Berger in Lagos to my home made me to
get to my town by 11pm.
I live at a corner in the outskirts of the town.
Here , I was stranded. After alighting at the last bus stop., how to get home became a problem.
My area was always in darkness and the road that swerved off the main road to this area was always deserted anytime from 9pm.
I am giving this details for you to know my reason for acknowledging the move of my great Father in Heaven.
A number of times people had been robbed even at day time on this one road.
I am not a night crawler
There was no more motorcycle. I spent another round of minutes waiting for one.
God, I cried out. I need You
I am dwelling in the secret place of the Lord God Almighty. I began to declare.
And God does not fail. His Word stands for sure
An ‘ Okada man came around. Believe me, he was God sent.
When I flagged him down to take me to my house , waiting for his answer
with fear in me. The money on me was not sufficient.I was thinking of
chartering him and for him to get his fare in my place after I got down.
The rider said he was not going but he would drop me at the junction , so I accepted this offer
Another passenger was also going along the road . His own destination was straight ahead after my junction.
Therefore, his was solved
I wholeheartedly accepted the one offered to me.
We got to be junction I was looking for the fare . He told me not to worry but he collected fare from the other man.
The man, on seeing the thick darkness that envelope the junction, even
encouraged me not to fear that I should be going on my way.
See GOD for me !
The last hurdle to take to get home was our junction.
The time was well into the night. Some minutes to midnight.
It was like a dark alleyway.
So I started walking and running on the 15 minutes treckable distance.
And God saw me home. The money on me sustained me home
I did not have to collect money from anyone to settle my transportation home.
My GOD has always been with me.
Praise the Lord with me
