"God, this is not what you told me, what is going on? Everything has turned upside down, I need your help"
Gbenga was in church on Sunday when God began to tell him that he was entering a new season of greatness. He was very excited and he began to day dream about the things he would do, he thought about building an orphanage, buying school buses for children in his community, he thought about getting married to that sister he had been eyeing in church and the wonderful life he was going to build. God had told him, he would be great and he believed it, God was not a man, He could not lie. Gbenga slept with a smile on his face.
On Monday morning, Gbenga got to his office and his manager called for him and gave him a letter, he thought to himself "haa, God has started, a promotion letter". Gbenga opened the letter and he was shocked, he had been fired with immediate effect.
What was going on? How could this happen after what God had told him, he was still trying to recover when his phone rang, his mum was in the hospital and he needed to send money urgently, the problem was he didn't have the money, now he had to find a way of raising money without a job.
Gbenga got into his car and was negotiating a bend when a car crashed into his side, he was so angry but when the traffic wardens came, they told Gbenga he was the one at fault, he begged the driver who told him that he had to come and see his Oga. In the meantime, Gbenga's phone was impounded, now he couldn't reach anyone.
Gbenga got back home and wanted to start crying but the Holy Spirit began to tell him to worship, that was strange but he obeyed. As he sang and danced before the Lord, he felt better and a peace that he could not understand was on him.
He went to see the owner of the car he hit, when he met the man, he took one look at him and said " Gbenga right? I know you very well, I belong on the board of directors of your company, I was the one who told them to terminate your appointment because I want you to come and head my new company.I was surprised when I heard you hit my car, my driver has bashed two cars so there's no way you can be at fault, don't bother about it, resume at the Lekki office on Monday, in the meantime take this car over here and N500,000 to fix your car. I will see you on Monday" Gbenga just bowed, thanked the man and left, he was overwhelmed.
When Gbenga got home, he just began to roll on the floor, he recognized that God was indeed superior in His ways and His thinking.
Beloved, the bible says in Isaiah 55:8-11(NLT) My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
9For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
10“The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
11It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
Many times, when God tells us about the good things He will do, we begin to imagine how He will do it and then when it doesn't go according to the way we felt it should go, we are disappointed. The approach should be to trust God and His word! Don't look around at everything going on around you, just focus on His word. If He has said it, He will bring it to pass!
Another thing you must know is that God does not need your help to do what He wants to do! Don't try to help God or think for Him, He created you and He knows you more than yourself, He knows how to do the things that will wipe your tears and put a smile on your face. If you have God's word on anything please go to sleep just keep praising Him till your change comes and it will no matter how impossible it looks!
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed.
Thank you for reading. Shalom
