Bible Reading:  Romans 8:28

Memory Verse And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. Romans 8:28 (AMP)

Dr. Amit Goffer is a PhD in Electrical Engineering. Goffer was a CEO of an Israeli medical start up. In January 1997, an accident made him quadriplegic (a person who is paralyzed in both arms and both legs) for life. Goffer has gone to a long rehabilitation process at a hospital. Today he admits that “the only ray of light was the love of his wife and his children, who kept the family together”.

After coming back home, Goffer lost interest in his former position – as a scientist. “I could not realize how come that towards the end of the 20th century disabled people have no other solution other than a wheel chair,” He said. This birthed the walking system he went ahead to develop called ‘ReWalk’. The devices that have been developed in the past were based on robotic instruments, instead of human beings. ReWalk’s exoskeleton is not powered by robots, but by a computer and motion sensors that work together to mimic natural gait. The devise enables individuals with spinal cord injuries the ability to walk again. At a marathon in Tel Aviv, Goffer walked about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) with the ‘ReWalk’. The battery was still on, and the second backup battery has not even been activated yet. Usually, the battery lasts a full work day or 3 hours of intensive walk. At the end of the day, he enters with the system to his CRV car and drove home.

Knowingly or unknowingly, Dr Amit Goffer is fulfilling purpose. Life “boxed him up” by giving him a riddle to unravel, first for himself but eventually for his generation. ReWalk is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. This was all powered by vision and “holy annoyance”. What the devil planned for evil, God converted for glory.


1. Until you get annoyed with your situation, you may be grounded forever.

2. You can convert your pain to gain. Your deficiency to efficiency.  Your despondency to hope. Your limitation to inventions. And, your mess to sense.

3“A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn” – HelenKeller.

QuoteNever give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never – Winston Churchill.

Prophetic Decree: Let the power of the Highest usher you into your destiny despite all odds, in Jesus’ name.

Prayer Focus

1. Thank you Lord for your mighty hands well able to see me through the many challenges of life.

2. I will not give up. I refuse to give in, in the name of Jesus.

3. The challenges life throws at me this year shall be a spring board to my lifting, in Jesus’ name.

4. I bind and cast out the spirit of hopelessness, in Jesus’ name.

5. In Year 2023, my problems shall turnaround as a testimony, in Jesus’ name.
