Putting God First

The Word of God says 'seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you' (Matthew 6:33). God has fulfilled this in my life.

I thank God for the power in the Blood of Jesus to save, heal and keep. I was not raised in the Apostolic Faith Church, but I had Christian parents who brought me up in the fear of the Lord. The Bible was an open book in our home and my father was the pastor of a Gospel church. As a pastor's kid I also had the opportunity of singing in the church choir. Because of the knowledge of God and strict upbringing, people thought that I was a good girl, but I was a sinner. I held malice against people, took pride in fighting and did many other sinful things.


Some members of our family used to go to the Apostolic Faith weekday services where they heard the Gospel that they need to pray through to the experience of salvation. My dad saw the way members of the Apostolic Faith choir dressed and conducted themselves, and prayed that the Lord would let one of his children become one of them. One day the Lord answered his prayers. The Lord sent conviction into my heart. While I was sleeping, the Spirit of God spoke to me through a song I sang as a child. When your soul flies away and death overshadows thee; when your life here is done; sinner, where will you appear? When I woke up, I was weeping and my parents thought that I was crying because of the pain caused by a whitlow on one of my fingers. I told them that I wanted to go to the prayer meeting at the Apostolic Faith Church . That evening I went to the altar to pray and although I did not pray through to salvation, God healed my finger of the whitlow.


I then decided to be worshipping at the Apostolic Faith. After my first service, the devil whispered to me that I did not fit in with the people there. I told my father this but he encouraged me to continue to attend services there. One glorious day during the great revival of 1968, the Lord saved, sanctified, and baptised me with the Holy Ghost and Fire. I had many trials and suffered persecution especially from my mother, but through it all I learned to trust in Jesus and He saw me through. I had several opportunities to work for the Lord. I enrolled in the music class and within a short period of time, I was privileged to join the church choir and orchestra. Serving the Lord has been a great joy, and the longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows.


The Word of God says 'seek ye first the kingdom of God , and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you'. (Matthew 6:33). God has fulfilled this in my life. I did not have the opportunity of going through secondary education due to my family's financial situation, but in God's own economy I was able to take my education up to A' Levels after my marriage. The Lord gave me a husband in the Gospel and saw me through pregnancy and childbearing. During our marriage, the Lord saw us through many difficult times. I am thankful for His faithfulness.


The Lord has healed me from various illnesses. At a time it was discovered that I had fibroids. The fibroids grew so much that people thought I was pregnant. One day I felt extreme discomfort and it felt like I was having labour pains. In a miraculous way that still cannot be explained, the Lord brought out the large 'mass' from my body without human intervention. The consultants and nurses in the hospital that witnessed what happened were astonished and were able to testify to the power of God.


Recently, the Lord took my husband home. It has not been easy, but the Lord has been comforting and supporting me during this period of my life. The Lord supplies all my needs and always protects me. I thank Him for answers to prayers and the hope of heaven. I love the Lord with all my heart; I want to see Him face to face in heaven where I will be praising Him forever.
