Bible Reading: Philippians 4: 6-7

Memory VerseGive all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)

Continued from yesterday…I resumed work with bank only to find out that I was pregnant. No company will employ a pregnant woman most especially in a bank. Then I started having symptoms during training. I will be dozing off and this drew the attention of some staff. One of the supervisors jokingly asked whether I was pregnant. I had to say the truth and before I realised it, I was advised to report back to Human Resource (HR) who sat me down and explained why she won’t retain me because she had a lot of pregnant women in the contact centre who will soon be due for maternity leave.

That was the reason why she requested for additional staff to replace them while on leave. I felt bad while she encouraged me to come back after my delivery but I was not happy. I returned back home disappointed and  I became worried asking, ”why”? I had gone to church for thanksgiving; I’d testified to God’s goodness. Moreso, neighbours now know that I got another job as I was so excited. But I refused to give up. Every morning, I dressed up as if I was going to the office but I resumed in the church to pray to God for divine intervention, asking God to touch the manager’s heart and grant me favour.

The Bible says, ”The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness” (Psalm 24:1). He owns the heart of a king and directs it to withersoever He wishes and also control the affairs of men. All these are my petition before God and God did answer my prayers. After a week or thereabout, I received a call from HR to resume back to the office. Isn’t God awesome? Yes He is!! And who says God does not answer prayers? I resumed back to work and everyone looks at me with wonder.

Some said, “I was lucky,” but I know the one behind my victory is Jesus. Dear friend, God has powers to do all things. If you lay your problem at His feet, He will surely help you out. Our God is a gracious Father. He wrote the lines on our palm. He has our destiny in His hands. He is waiting for you to bring your request to Him for He delights so much in our well being. The scripture says, “Cast all your cares on him for He cares for you.” (1 Pet 5:7).

As a believer, God has deposited powers into your life. It is therefore important that you recognised it and use it to claim your victory in Christ. God’s plan for us is to operate as gods on earth (Ps 82:6). We are created in His likeness to dominate, so stand up and  occupy your place of dominion. Refuse to give up. In addition, I encourage you to develop a holy anger towards your unpleasant situation and you will surely see God manifesting His powers. Run to Him today for your needs; He is waiting, run to Him. He is ABLE.

Quote: Prayer is earthly permission for heavenly interference.

Prophetic Decree: I command every arrow of weariness fired into your spirit to backfire, in Jesus name.
