“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think…” (Ephesians 3:20)
I once got posted to a rural town to work as a young Medical Doctor. And at that time, it seemed I would have a hard time there. So, I rejected the posting and got some influential people to support me.
I soon realized that it would not be easy for me to have my way. To begin with, the man who did the posting was a strong-willed man. He had scant regard for people and never changed his mind on issues he controlled. He was indeed a difficult man!
Those who knew him advised me not to approach him to help me since he would do no such thing. But I ignored them. I subsequently spent many days praying to God to touch his mind for me. I believed He would! (Proverbs 21:1)
One day, I went to the man’s office. And when I got there, I saw him shouting at the people with him. He was mean to them! As one would expect, he did not even look at the messages I brought from my backers, appealing to him to help me. But I was not scared of him! (Psalm 118:6)
At a point, he looked at me and said, “Mr. Man, who are you, and what are you doing here?” From his tone, one would think I committed a crime. Well, I told him my name and boldly asked him to change my posting. He laughed and then urged me to visit the said town first. He said I would like it, but he would grant my request if I didn’t.
As you can see, the man was kind to me. Meanwhile, he was known for his unkindness and stubbornness! In any case, I went to the town as he advised, and I liked it at first sight. I also fell in love with its hospital. It looked cute, clean, and well organized. Guess what! I did not reject the posting after all.
I went on to have one of the best moments of my life in the town. Its people were good to me, and with my colleagues, I helped them solve many of their health and other problems. God exceeded my expectation there! He is willing and able to exceed yours, too, if you involve Him in your matters.
Do you want to write a book, record a song, or produce a film? Do you want to get married and have children one day? Do you want to build a school, start your business or ministry? Do you want to go back to school or learn a trade? Are you bereaved, and do you want to be happy again, etc.? Whatever your plan is, please, pray to God to help you, and He will! (Psalm 84:11)
He will cause people to be good to you. And you will experience divine favor, speed, and grace. You will lack nothing, which you need to succeed. Before long, people will notice you, warm up to you and join you to praise the name of the Lord, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
