THE HOLY SPIRIT
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever– The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. [The Holy Spirit has already come on the day of Pentecost just receive Him by Faith]
John 14:16-17 (AMP)
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, I do not cease to give
thanks to You. Thank You for granting me Your forgiveness, for You
made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for me, that I might become the
righteousness of God in Him. Father of glory, by Your mercy I present
my body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to You. And I do not
conform to the pattern of this world but transforming by the renewing of
my mind with the Word of God, that I may prove what is that good and
acceptable and perfect will of God. Father, I pray that You give me a
hearing heart to hear from You, not missing a Word. For Your grace is
sufficient for me, for Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. For
when I am weak then I am strong for the power of Christ rests upon me.
In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
Praise the Lord church. Honestly, how great is Our God. I’d like to share this testimony about how God initiated His plan for my life at the right time after I had lost hope in everything I did and had.
My mum had gotten married in 2018 with a man who lived in the US. I grew up without having a father figure and even though my mum played both the roles of a father and a mother, being the only child and attending a school full of kids pointing fingers and commenting on whatever I had and looked like, I felt the need of a father. Someone who could give me assurance that I was never alone. But as time went by, I realized how blessed I was. I had God by my side and the queen of the house, my mother. This man that I now call my father is everything I prayed for. More than I could ever ask for. God really does restore everything you lose. We had applied for our migration in 2018 being told that we will receive our visa in 6 to 8months. Upon waiting for more than 8 months, our visa got declined. I was heartbroken and so was my mum. Everything seemed hopeless. We continuously asked God, why God? Why?
If our visa had to be declined then why make us wait and go through all the processes needed. God said, “Just breathe and trust Me”.
We had no other choice but to place our faith in the Lord our God. Prayers and thanksgiving continued and without hesitation, we went where the Holy Spirit took us. We had re applied for our migration.
In June 2020, on my birthday we received an email of approval. Yes, our visa finally got approved. That was literally one of the best gifts I had ever received, I was just few steps away of living with my whole family, mummy, papa and their only darling daughter, me.
Moving on to September 2020, we received our interview date which was exactly on my mum’s birthday.
We prayed and went on for our interview, the embassy told us that we’d have to wait for 5 working days for our visa and so we went back home hoping we would get through. Little did we know that God had other plans. We received a call from the embassy right after 4 hours. We were told to pick our visa. Yes, we were through immediately. Praises to the King.
The next day my mum and I received another email regarding our PR. We got our PR straight after our interview day.
We were super happy for our journey until coronavirus made a grand entry in the US.
America went on a locked down and so did my hopes. As my mum and I continued to pray, God gave us His word. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans that I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.
God makes a way where there seems to be no way. Tickets were finally available and thanks to The Almighty God we serve, we got tickets to fly out on the 11th of February. Sadly, this will be our last Sunday with the JCLM family since the weekends will be spent in west now until after next week. Our time in Fiji was good but a whole new journey awaits and as I’ll step into a new place, I’ll continue to trust God and His plans for my life for it is through Him that we were able to come this far and He is the one who will take us to the next season with double and triple amount of blessings.
God’s plan for your life is truly beyond your imagination. Corona can never come in comparison with our God. He is a miracle working God and I am proud of the God I serve. We have received more than we could ever ask for and The Lord still says, hold on there’s more.
