TEXT: LUKE 8: 49-56
49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden.
52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.
53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.
56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
Key verse: Psalm 107:20 He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from their destructions.
My name is Sister Affi Susan Chris from Cross River state chapter. I thank God for
the divine assignments given to us which has been a great blessing to me in
particular. I joined HOREMOW since 2013. I have been doing the assignments quite
alright but due to the nature of my job I have never been able to finish it; whenever
I come back from work, I would be rushing to cook for my family and to prepare for
fellowship activities. During a prayer retreat I attended in January in Port Harcourt,
a coordinator while leading us in prayers, shared a revelation that the Lord gave to a
sister concerning the HOREMOW assignments; that in a combined service, the
angels of the Lord came with whips and were flogging everybody because we were
not serious with the divine assignments.
We cried, pleaded for mercy and promised to be faithful henceforth. I was touched
by this testimony and determined that I must complete my assignments this 2023.
There and then, I made up my mind that to resign from my place of work since it has
always hindered me from completing my HOREMOW assignments. In the course
of the prayers, we were asked to make our personal requests and I asked God to heal
my husband’s dead kidney. It was discovered during the Covid-19 lockdown that
my husband had kidney problem although he had suffered much before then. I
concluded that I would donate one of my kidneys for his survival if it is required.
We kept on praying for spare kidneys from heaven and my husband and I were
waking at midnight for prayers as part of prayer assignment. After the program, I
went home and my children ran to me in excitement but decided to keep me in
suspense. I noticed their strange behavior and asked what was the matter. They
replied that it was a top secret which their father asked them not to share with me
yet but when I pressurized them, they said, “Mummy, guess what? The Lord has
healed daddy’s kidney. He went to the hospital while you were in the camp; the
doctors checked him and his kidneys are functioning well.” (To be continued)
Thought for the day: Obedience to divine assignments brings blessings.
Song for the day: He is a miracle working God, Alleluia …
Bible reading for the day: Isaiah 10-12; Galatians 5
