Lessons from my near death experience.
I really can’t recall when I started getting the premonition of death. But I think it all started when l lost a friend and suddenly fear gripped my heart for weeks and the feeling of “we are not safe anymore” was all over me. I didn’t tell anyone I had this thought even my bff just for a single reason
WORDS ARE POWERFUL, THEY ARE SPIRITUAL AND THEY ARE ALIVE, I WAS NOT GOING TO GIVE LIFE TO THAT NEGATIVE THOUGHT.
So I did what a believer would do. I superimposed the negative thought with God’s word and I confessed that God has satisfied me with long life and prosperity. The more the thought came, the more I confessed. I had to drown my fears in the ocean of faith.
Around that same time I was making weekly trips to Enugu for a research work. On one of these occasion, I boarded a bus back to school and slept off. Few minutes into the journey, I was awakened with screams of ‘JESUS’ around me. The brake of the bus had failed and the driver was in a huge panic, one dude had already jumped out of the bus and here I was…
Numb! Shocked! I couldn’t scream nor utter a word. I was just static.
But God showed up!!! And the bus hit another and that was how the bus stopped. Thankfully, no one was injured. I came out of that accident and the first thing I said was “I didn’t deserve this”.
Then it all came back, the thoughts and fears for the past few weeks. The devil had plans big time but God prevailed.
So when that evil thought comes to you, starve it. Bring it into captivity to the obedience of Christ
P. S. After this incident I got to appreciate all the safe trips I have had over the years. It made me realize how fleeting life can be.
