Bible Reading: Romans 11: 33-36

Memory VerseO, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and untraceable His ways! Romans 11:33 (BSB)

You will expect a man of such integrity like Dr. Christopher Kolade who walked with God in all integrity to pass through life unscathed. But, life is not always like that. He lost his only son in 1995 at an unripe age of 36. That event was to later confirm the awesomeness and faithfulness of God. One day, he encountered God afresh. While asleep, the comforting hand of the Holy Spirit rested on him and God gave him a scripture: Psalm 27:1,13. Verse 1: “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” . Verse 13: “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” While sharing this testimony, a lady could not but ask, “Must God make you lose your son to teach you a lesson and assure you of His goodness? Good question. Dr Kolade got the microphone and replied with yet another tragic instance.

Another lover of God, his cousin died of cancer. He loved God so well and was so committed to the things of God, but had cancer. He was placed on life support but then, the doctors said it was  needless placing him on life support. They needed to get the consent of the family to remove the life support so he could pass on quietly. The onus was on Dr. Kolade being the most senior member of the family to give a go ahead. “I went to God and cried to him and said, ‘Lord why did you decide to punish me. Why must I be the one to decide whether or not the life support was to be removed?” The Lord then took him through another session of tutelage.

The Lord asked, “If your cousin was to choose between coming to me and staying back in the world, which option do you think he would go for? He said he would prefer to be with you. God asked him again, “If I am the one in charge of a person’s life, and I am okay with the life of the person, and I want the person to come back to me, what has that got to do with any other person? I am the one who determines the duration of a person’s assignment. It has nothing to do with you.” That settled it. Indeed, it was a time of learning and a time of refreshing. Indeed, God’s ways are beyond searching out. Read Romans 11:33.
