A LIFETIME TESTIMONY 2

I and my immediate elder brother were taken to the hospital to see my elder brother, but I was told that on getting to his bed at the hospital I screamed “Masquerade”. My brother’s face was swollen and you couldn’t even see his eye. I think my immediate elder brother was able to stay by his side.
On Sunday my mum takes a bike going for service and the bike man begins to narrate the incident all over again not knowing that my mum was the mother of the said boy.
“Madam, if you see the accident wey happen here ehn. Fine boy, him mama rub powder for him face. Car come jam am, the boy just die”
“That’s my son you are talking about and he is alive”
“Madam no oh! We dey there when the thing happen, the boy die”
The bike man follows my mum to the house to see my brother. On getting to our house, he narrates the whole incident to my dad. My dad not really knowing the full extent previously, burst out in tears and starts singing.
“I have a very big God oh, who is always by my side…”
Before the bike man leaves the house he looked at my brother and said “this boy will be great”
————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
When I called my brother a masquerade in the hospital, it was due to the fact that his face was disfigured beyond recognition. The kind of face dis-figuration that would have needed a plastic surgery, after all his face was dragged on the wall and on the ground several times, before the car finally stopped. It was supposed to take days for my brother to recover from this ghastly motor accident, but that same day he had gotten better, by the next day he was able to play around in the hospital with his face back to normal. Well, God the master surgeon worked on his face and my brothers’ face is one of the smoothest I have ever seen.

We also did not know the full extent till the bike man gave a narration of everything that happened and am sure the man was able to believe in the God we serve. In fact medically the kind of accident my brother had was such that the person could have seizures due to brain damage which could later lead to death as the accident victim becomes older. Our testimony was such that there was no brain damage, neither was there any cause to continuously run to the hospital due to seizures.
LESSONS FROM LIFETIME TESTIMONY
1. A believer has the authority to decree and declare, and it will be established.
Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
2. God works in ways that we cannot understand and it all seems like a dream before our eyes.
Psa 126:1 A Song of degrees. When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
3. We serve a God that neither slumbers nor sleeps, always watching over his children.
Psa 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.psalm121-4

A LIFETIME TESTIMONY

I want to share a testimony that is very precious in my family. A testimony we are always eager to share. It happened sixteen years ago. My mum went to the market to get food stuffs for the house, back then we were staying in my state. My dad was to arrive from Lagos as he was currently working there. Usually, my mum makes a list of what she wants to buy in the market before setting out.
On this particular day she left out Maggi from the list of things which she was supposed to buy, which is very unlike her. Then she decided to send my brother to get it.
“Valentine, please watch the cars passing by and make sure you stay away from the main road”
Prior to this time my immediate elder brother had told my mum that he had a dream that the flower vase on our table got broken. So my mum gathered us to pray and my immediate elder brother sang this song
“The devil is losing again……”
——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Car tires screeching, driver tries to swerve, but succeeds in picking the young boy from the wall. Drags him a long distance, with the car leaving a mark on the wall…eventually climbs on him, the market women in the vehicle rush down to help the boy and then suddenly the driver drives off.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
A Muslim man runs to the scene and places his chest on the boy
“He is Dead”
They got a piece of cloth and they covered him. “Who is the boy’s mother and how can we get to her?” they asked.
——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
A good Samaritan runs to a nearby house
“Mama Val, Mama Val”
She rushes out
“Your son Val had an accident and he is dead”
She runs to a nearby well to jump inside and suddenly hears a voice saying “He that keepeth watch over thee neither slumbers nor sleep” (Ps 121:4)
psalm121-4
Here the story goes; my brother was taken to several hospitals, only to be told that the doctors were not available. Due to the chaos, they forgot a nearby hospital, to which the doctor was a family friend. On getting there my mum went out to pray as she wasn’t let in with him.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
“Father, I shut the gates of Heaven and Hell, no one gets in, till my son comes back”
Minutes after, the doctor comes to meet her where she is
“Madam, your son is back to life, but in a critical condition.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
My dad gets back from Lagos and hears that his first son was involved in an accident, though by then it wasn’t so critical any more. What happened next always brings gratitude to our hearts.

The continuing part coming up next….
