It always seems that Ifeoma has a timely lesson on her blog, Purposeful and Meaningful. Sharing practical tips on relevant topics, Ifeoma keeps Christ at the center of her writing. Grateful to have her sharing a challenge to grow in prayer based on God’s Word.
One fateful night, after I had spent a splendid time studying and praying, I prepared to ease into my writing by checking my messages.
You wouldn’t believe the message I got. My eyes literally widened in shock. I read the message over and over again. It is not possible, I said to myself. This can’t be true!
It was far from being good news, friend.
I was in the midst of a mess. Someone had set me up. Now I was called to my own defense.
I lost my balance. Lord, what is this? At 2 am I couldn’t bear it any more, I woke Obi up and briefed him. He began to pray about it too.
It was time for a divine intervention. I had less than 24 hours to prove I was innocent of this senseless accusation. At about 8:30 am, I let a few sisters know about what was going on and we prayed. The Word was declared over the situation. Sometimes we need other sister friends in our lives to pray along with us. We need true friends who would stand by us in faith. Remember Ruth and Naomi?
Every Christian Woman needs praying Sisters.
God’s Word works. There is tremendous power in the Name of Jesus.
My heart found peace and quiet and I went about my routine activities believing that the Lord would vindicate me.
Friend, God did it! Amen!
By 8:30pm that same day, I received a follow-up email confirming that the perpetrators had confessed and my name was cleared. Thank God for His faithfulness.
Are you been falsely accused?
Is there a situation threatening to swallow you up?
Does it seem like everything is contending with your peace?
My prayer for you:
In the Jesus Name, there is deliverance. In the Name of Jesus, there is divine help for you. The Lord will quiet every raging storm blowing over your life in Jesus Name. The Lord will fight every battle over your life and set you free from the trap you are caught in. He alone will deliver His people and take the glory in Jesus Name.
The Word of God works in every situation.
As a believer, strengthen your faith by feeding on His Word.
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost…”
Jude 1:20 (KJV)
Believe and act in faith.
God’s Word is a powerful weapon in the hands of those who have faith and understand the potency of His Word.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds”
2 Corinthians 10:4 (KJV)
You my friend, are not of this world. You operate differently because the mystery of the God’s kingdom is given to you not to the world. Therefore, the world cannot understand it. To them it is foolishness to call on the Name of Jesus and to speak the Word. To us, the Word of God is everything. For more reading… (1 Corinthians 2:4-7 and 1 John 4:4)
We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory (1 Corinthians 2:7.)
In the midst of trials don’t give up your faith. Hold on to His promise over your life and He will come through for you. In whatever situation you find yourself, lift up your voice with all your heart and call upon the name of Jesus. Wait for Him and be not discouraged.
