Who would say there is no Holy Spirit to guide one?
give God Almighty all the glory and all the honor for proving Himself
to me and the situation that came knocking,as the Lord, Who knows all

It was a traumatic experience. But God came to my rescue.
I was in my shop in front of our house attending to the day’s business.
the only one left at home when everybody would have gone to work or
school, I made it a habit to be going inside the house to just see to
Our house is fenced round to standard heights. We have a small puppy to keep me company.
Then, last week Friday, around 12 noon, electricity light was restored. I decided to go inside the house to change my phone.
Little did I know there were some strangers in d house. Or may be one. None was sure.
I got to the sitting room and had my set plugged into one of the sockets
The Friday Muslim prayers were going on and the mosque is behind our house.
One could hear all that was being said loud enough.
But it prevented me from hearing any sound of what was happening in our compound.
time came, more than twice, that I had the urge to go check the
house.;but something in me- I later found this to be the Holy Spirit –

I could not believe my eyes! All these and other valuables had been taken with the whole house ransacked.
I thank God Who restrained me from going inside when the whole place was being turned upside down.
Knives had been prepared for anyone who would have come in at the time ‘ they ‘ were reigning in the house.
also a belt knotted in circular form like someone who wanted to go for a
suicide mission – wanting to hang himself – was placed on the centre

Double joy for us !

God took control.
made us pursue them and caused ur to recover almost all the things
stolen. They left with some cash and the phone I was charging .
The Covenant-keeping -God fought for us.
HE was watching them when they were cutting the window nets of the room at the back of the house.
HE did not stop them nor make me hear any sound.
When they were removing the burglary proof of the said window, God was seated on His throne , having His own plan ready for us.
Praise the Lord!
The thieves demobilized the small dog. And God did same to them at the end of their ‘labour’.
