Jehovah Jireh means the “YHWH Provides” in the Hebrew language. It depicts provision of the ONE who is able. I experienced this reality in three aspects of my life right now. Sharing here speaks of the testimony of Jesus in my life – past, present and future.
God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all I could ever ask for or even imagine.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us… Ephesians 3:20
He provided money for the entire duration of my medical struggles. I didn’t even experience lack even when on a five month hiatus at work. Simply amazing.
Of course, I loaned some money to pay my expenses but with a good condition to pay it when able. Isn’t that amazing?
Favor simply means having what’s not merited for us. I believe in this truth all through my ordeals even until now.
He is the peace that passes all our understanding.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus… Philippians 4:7
God gave me peace of mind. Having been diagnosed has its challenges but even in this great challenges, I find peace believing God is able to heal me. Four people have spoken words of healing to me. Three people dreamed of my healing in fullness. Hundreds prayed for me.
Can I just say “thank you” for all those times of God’s testing if I can stay put and trust him more even in the midst of circumstances.
For His grace is sufficient in my weaknesses.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”… 2 Corinthians 12:9
I have experienced being strong-willed, having the physical strength to do stuff I could do on my own. But as my senior pastor would say “it takes God to put me in bed for me to realize many stuff…” is true.
I spent the first month out of the hospital,immobilized to the point of my mom or brother cleaning me up. I even had myself bathed by my mom because I can’t bend down, my brother cleaning my dump, my other brother washing my clothes and papa fixing my food. I was messed up. But God’s grace is sufficient for my needs.
In my insufficiency, He is there. In my struggles, He is there. In my great need, He is there. Indeed, He is able.
Today, I shared my testimony at church because I had my lungs checked-up and got a negative results from two doctors, a fit to work per se. I’m pneumonia free after 5 months. The medicine works! God healed me!
Now to Him who is able to keep me from falling, be glory and power and praise forever more.
