During one of the services in Chatham,Pst Matthew Ashimolowo talked about how important it is to testify of the things God does for us.Even the seemingly little stuff.So,I’ve taken it upon myself to testify often.
It’s amazing how God can hear all kinds of prayers.Even ‘women prayers’.Lol.Yes,ladies,sure y’all know what I’m talking about,innit?😝
So,I had a lot of dark spots on my face (due to hyperpigmentation) which was concealing my natural complexion.
For years,I spent so much money on products trying to deal with the issue.Oh,the joys of womanhood!
I got to a point where I was fed up!But then,it occurred to me that the Word admonishes us in John 16:24 to ask that our joy may be full,complete.I thought to myself:’I can ask God anything right?So,why not ?’.I asked in prayer that He will show me what to do in terms of the hyperpigmentation.After all, my body is His temple and I’ve got to treat it right!
Now,I ain’t talking about bleaching here,:or stuff full of hydroquinone,right,yeah?!?We’re cool?😁😝Amazingly,the spirit of the living God did.And it’s all natural products for less than a tenner!I’m pretty sure,someone right now is thinking:’she mad right?What’s God got to do with that?😝
You see,God is concerned about everything concerning us.The big things.The little things.The not so big things and the seemingly less important things.He cares about our every need.He said He will supply all our needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
He is willing to help you with whatever,as long as you ask according to his will.
Matthew says to us to ask and we shall receive.Seek and you will find.Knock and the door will be opened to you.You receive not because you do not ask.
You see,I asked and I received.I sought and I found.People keep telling me how good my skin looks(blushes all the time 🙈);we’re getting there.
Ask, ask,ask.When you ask,also learn to wait.God isn’t a microwave God or like Christina Aguilera”s ‘genie in a bottle’who does all things once you ask.He knows what’s best for you and comes through right on time!
Ask,just ask…Seek…Knock…Don’t be discouraged.Even if you get to the point of despair,rise back up and fight on!
I’m praying another”woman prayer”right now.I’ll come back and testify in a few months by his grace…
Matthew 7:7-11 The Message (MSG)
“Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?
