TEXT: PSALM 107: 1-9
1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;3And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.4They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.6Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.7And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.8Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!9For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Key verse: Psalm 44:4
Thou art my King O God. Command deliverances for Jacob.
I am Pastor Samuel Gida. The Lord has done great and wonderful things for my family. I appreciate God for delivering us from a ghastly motor accident on 24th July, 2021, just before the international holiness youth conference. Before we embarked on the journey, I had a dream that we went to the park for the journey to Abuja but we missed the first and second vehicles and the third vehicle we entered over- speeding such that he overtook the first and second vehicle. I woke my wife up and narrated the dream to her. We prayed about it and cancelled accidents. Surprisingly, when we got to the motor park in the morning, we discovered that it was the third vehicle that we entered and as the driver moved from the park, he started over- speeding. I reminded my wife of the dream and prayed again with her in the vehicle.
Afterwards, I slept off. I was sleeping when the accident happened but I was told that the front tyre burst suddenly making the vehicle to summersault several times, throwing all of us out of the bus except my wife until it stopped upside down with the tyres up. At the final turn, my wife’s leg got broken when the boot hit her leg against an iron and trapped her there. I was thrown out of the vehicle and lay unconscious for a long time until God made me to regain consciousness. I began to hear faint sounds and I heard my wife’s voice as someone speaking from a very far place, saying, “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Where is my husband? My husband?”
I gathered the remaining strength in me and replied, “Mummy! Mummy, I am here. See me here.” She turned and our eyes met, then I lost consciousness again for a long time. It was at the hospital that I regained consciousness but I was not coordinated at all. I was told that we were involved in a ghastly motor accident and that the driver and all the passengers died except my wife and I. I told my wife to call international director, Pastor Paul Rika and inform him of the accident. I also told her to call the deeper life pastor in Mafara and our Sokoto brethren. Thank God, they responded, came to the hospital and helped us greatly. We were discharged that same day, physically carried into a chartered vehicle and taken back to Sokoto.
Thought for the day: The eternal God is thy refuge
Song for the day: What the Lord has done for me, I cannot tell it all
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 1-3; Acts 16:1-15
