Believing God and Receiving the Gift of Tongues in a strange manner

I grew up in Kano and my childhood was marked with so much atrocities. Unfortunately, I did not graduate from my secondary school. In addition, I did not graduate from the university too. I started doing all sort of things and I thought my life expectancy was going to be 25 years at the most. At the age of 19 I had seen all sorts that anyone at the age of 90 would not want to see and do. I had money early on in life, but I lost it all. However, there was a turning point in my life. One day I went to the University of Ife to pick up a lady and she said she would attend a fellowship meeting.  I said to her that there is no problem and I would patiently wait for her till they finish their meeting. Across the road, there was a joint and while I was there, I could hear people pray out loud in tongues from the fellowship. So, I said to God in my heart that if truly these fellowship folks were speaking to you through their prayers, let me speak like one of them. To my greatest surprise, I started speaking in tongues. I wanted to call for the bill of my drinks, but it was tongues that came out of my mouth. I decided to say nothing anymore because I didn’t want to make a fool of myself. Eventually I joined them in the fellowship and the sister coordinating the service led me to Christ. Ever since then, I had not stop speaking in tongues. Right from that day I found God and that marked a new beginning in my life. As at today, I am doing well and even though there had been health challenges, God has preserved me and He has provided for me so much so that I am a blessing to scores of people. Bless God! – Bro M

A sickness free life

There is a revelation in Romans 8:11 that God used to liberate me from the grip of sickness. The drug that was given to me during the time of my sickness has the tendency to go to the wrong places, leaving the places with problems, and it will go on to the places without problems.

Look unto Jesus

There is always the tendency for us to get distracted in life. Our eyes will go off course when we are distracted and we lose focus. The Christian life is a walk with Jesus as our focus but the cares of this life and deceitfulness of riches makes us take our eyes off Jesus. We
