Hi friends, I'd like to share a short testimony that has happened today and has shocked me,which has brought to me the reality of Romans 8:28 which says, "And we know that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."
We have our own plans, but God also has His plans for our lives and the Bible says His plans for us are to make us prosper and not to harm us Jeremiah 29:11.
When I graduated from University, my dream was to work at a well known media house and therefore made various applications.
However, I did not get a response from the media house that I wanted the most and I felt hurt because I thought that is what was the best for me. Instead I got accepted at another media house which is also famous,but not as much as the one I wanted.
I wondered why after praying and fasting without ceasing, I could not get the job I really wanted and felt was the best for me.
Today shockingly,that media house which I so badly wanted to go to at first has been shut down with immediate effect by the Ministry of Information and broadcasting and their license revoked for allegedly violating terms of agreement.
Now I can not help but be in amazement that had I been there,this day I would have been rendered jobless.
Even though at first I may have felt that injustice was being done to me for not getting the job I thought was the best for me after praying,I realise that God is so good and I thank Him for not giving me that Job.
He did not give it to me because He knew that the future of that television station was doomed for closure. Tears fill my eyes as I reflect on this and I am overwhelmed by God's love for me as His child. God is always protective of His children and He always knows what is best for us.
This is for someone out there who may feel like some injustice is being done to them in some way. Remember that God is good all the time and His thoughts are not our thoughts Isaiah 55: 8-9.
What may seem like God harming us may actually be Him protecting us.
I really feel bad for those when have been rendered jobless from that institution and may the Lord open other doors for them.
