TEXT: John 5:5-9
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
Key verse: Psalm 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Testimony as narrated by a HOREMOW bookshop clerk in Kaduna State, Nigeria: I was in the HOREMOW Bookshop/Secretariat at Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, in the afternoon of June 13, 2020 when an average-aged man walked into the office asking for one Pastor Monday who is in the upper floor of our office building. Pastor Monday has an NGO for people with disabilities. I barely gave the young man attention because I was busy writing down the titles of the new messages preached by Daddy Rika during this lockdown so that we could produce them for sale. But the man advanced into the office and pointed his finger straight at one of the DVD messages on the shelf and asked, “Are you selling the messages of this man in this place?” In response I asked him, “Which man?” He pointed at daddy Rika's picture on one of the DVDs and said, “This man.” He continued, “I cannot fully explain what this man did in my life through this message .”
At this point, I went to the book shelf and picked up the message and presented it to him. I asked him again, “Do you mean this message?” He said, “Yes.” Then I told him that this has become your own copy from today; but sit down and narrate the details of your testimony to me. He sat down and began to explain to me in an incoherent language how it all happened. Below is the testimony of his supernatural healing and deliverance.
Testimony of Marcus Magaji: I live at No. 43, Waziri Street, Ungwan Sule, Romi, Kaduna State. I was born in 1981 at Soriyang, Zangon Kataff Local Government, Kaduna State, Nigeria. I grew up to discover that I was mad. The affliction began with me when I was a year old. During my 39 years on earth, I was eating my own excreta regularly. Also, my sperm was my milk occasionally. This traumatized me and made me unkempt and very dirty. My relatives too distanced themselves from me. I did not know the joy of life, neither the comfort of relations because of this condition. However, on that fateful and blessed day of my life, the Lord Jesus delivered me and made me whole.

Thought for the day: Jesus is the Great Physician. Nothing is impossible for Him to do.
Song for the day: Nothing is too difficult for Him, nothing is too difficult for Him, great and mighty God….
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 22-24; Acts 20:1-16
