How I Found Jesus

I was in the library studying my books and then someone whom I barely know at that time called John came into the library. He sat opposite me and started sharing the word of God with me, most of which pertained to my life and situation.

At the end of the meeting, he prayed for me. I can forget every other part of the prayer but one part of the prayer I will never forget was when he said, “you that sickness in him in the name of Jesus come out!”. I had a slight jerk, like something actually came out of me and when I opened my eyes everywhere was brighter than ever before. We exchanged contacts and He left. When he had gone, I kept on pondering on that name JESUS because the name was strange to me at that time.

For three months from that time I became restless. All what he preached to me kept on ringing back to me in my mind; like a conviction or sort of. I picked up my mobile phone and called him and he gave me the location he was (Deeper Life Bible Church). I went there and had a conversation with him. I asked him how he knew I was sick when we were at the library and he said he didn’t even know when he made that statement.

I was actually sick (a reoccurring ailment of seven years), but after that prayer, the sickness is no where to be found anymore. No wonder Jesus Christ my Lord said in Mark 16:18 that those who believe in Him will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:18).”

Since then till this moment, Jesus has been my Lord and personal savior. I implore you to embrace Him. He will give you absolute peace of mind (John 14:27) and there is virtually no problem you face that He can’t  solve. If He could save me, He can save you also.
