Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2 “Keep your eyes on [Jesus], who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed–that exhilarating finish in and with God–he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s [there], in the place of honor, right alongside God.”(MSG)
I am doing this new piece partly as a sequel to the last series titled “Extra mile”. We have received several testimonies and praise reports about how God has made “Extra mile” a blessing to several people that read it. We have had an overwhelming response to the glory of God.
A dear friend of mine of several years who is also a LIFT PARTNER had a chat with me on the principle of “extra mile” and how it had worked for him. I was excited and went ahead to schedule a meeting with him to hear his full story so that we can learn from it.
Let me share his story with you:
I finished from the university some years ago but graduated with third class. I felt very down and lost confidence in myself. I couldn’t use my certificate to look for a job as I was too embarrassed with my grade to show it to anybody. It was like I had wasted my years in the university.
I began to think back and then decided to enroll in the military. All my life I had wanted to be a soldier so I tried severally to get into the Nigerian Defense Academy but it didn’t work out. After several failed attempts, I decided to consult God and ask Him for direction.
I prayed fervently for several days seeking His face and guidance and to my greatest amazement God began speaking to me in very clear terms.
To be continued…
Love you BiG
