“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known your faithfulness to all generations” .Psalms 89:1
Yes, to all generations, the Bible says so. I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will start doing that now and continue to do so in all the days of my life. I am not yet there, I have not yet done that into perfection and so the Lord keeps protecting me till I accomplish His purpose. His faithfulness shall be made known to all generations.
It was on 27th May 2009 I recall very well. That morning I did pray and asked God to order my steps. I continued with my daily activities.
It was during this time when the enemy wanted to shut me up…
I was crossing the road to the other side in town. After making sure that the roads were clear, and the vehicle behind me was at a distance, I made my move. Hardly had I walked three steps when I fell down heavily.
The car hit me from behind and I fell backward. That was the first miracle. Then it proceeded and my right foot was caught. The driver saw that there was something amiss and he stepped on the breaks. The tire was on top of my foot. I tried to pull my foot to no avail. This time there were so many people around and they were shouting at the driver to reverse the car so that I could pull off my leg from the tire. He reversed and it hurt so much. I felt a lot of pain. I could not walk anymore. The people around helped me get up and entered the same vehicle which took me to the nearest provincial Hospital in Nakuru.
How I was rescued from this accident is a miracle itself. Normally when you are hit by a vehicle you fall forward and not backward, but then I see how God did protect me. His angels were all around me. What the enemy wanted to do could be done because Jesus was there for me. His presence was eminent. My time is not yet, I shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord. Glory be to Him.
“I have never seen something like this,” said one of the three people in the car who accompanied me to the hospital.
“Why, accidents do happen”, I said.
“No, in your case it is unique, you could have died,” one replied.
“My time is not yet, the Lord was there for me”, I answered back.
“You must be a born again man”.
“Yes, I am”, I said.
It took about ten minutes to get to the hospital. I was ushered to get into the doctor’s room in the wheel chair for I could not walk, my feet was hurting terribly with much pain.
The doctor examined me and when he touched my right ankle he said that the bone was broken. In my heart I said, “No”. I put my hand on my feet and spoke lightly, it is all well…
“Take him to the X-ray room”, ordered the doctor.
I was immediately taken to another room where the X- ray was taken and after this was taken back to the same doctor who had told me that my bone was broken.
The results were out and he talked and he said, “Your shoes were so strong and no bone is broken”.
“My God is strong, He protected me. The shoe did nothing at all”, I replied.
“Your God is indeed well able”, he admitted.
He injected me and then put a plaster on me and later was released to go back home.
I knew then that I had a mission and my time was not yet, I am here to declare the Lord’s goodness, the Lord’s mercies to all generations!
His mercies saw me through the accident and so I will open my mouth and sing as well as make known His faithfulness to all generations.
I have a word of comfort to someone reading this. May be you could be in the bed right now, sick and almost given up. It is not yet time for you to go home, you have a lot to do for His glory, Jesus is right there with you, just call on Him, He will rescue you and give you hope to live again. It is not yet time to quit, it is not yet time to give up, it is not yet time to surrender, but it is time to make known the Lord’s faithfulness to all nations, to sing of His mercies!
When I was down there at the road and tire on my foot, I told God, It is not time to come up there Lord. This He proved to me and now I can shout with great joy that the Lord’s mercies endure forever! This will be my song and I know He has good plans for me.
To God be the glory for now I am slowly recovering and practicing to walk. Many people who have come to see me, they stare at me and then look at the shoe which was destroyed and the trouser which can’t be worn anymore and they marvel, “Isn’t it a miracle!” Sure yes, it is!!!
Thank you for all those that prayed for me. Surely your prayers are making a great impact, you have really shown me a heart of great care and concern.
I love you all.
