Scripture:- Genesis 18:1-33
Topic:- Angels On Assignment
Text:- Hebrews 13:2
Many times the question is asked about the existence of Angels. Many people do not believe their existence even when other people narrate their experiences with Angels on assignment. So today, we bring you another of such stories as shared by Mr. Bayo Adeyinka.
I was contesting for the Students Union Presidency that year. As I went around on campus for my campaign that particular day, a lady approached me. She told me her name is Bola and God sent her to me.
She told me God said I should give her 6 people who will join her to pray for me each day I’m out on campaign. They were to continue to pray until I got back each day. I obeyed and selected 6 friends and with her (making 7), I opened my room each day for them.
They all came together to pray while I campaigned. Daily. They stopped on the eve of the election. I won that election by a landslide. It was my second attempt but the margin of win was massive. My votes were more than that of the other 5 contestants summed together. Yes, that was truly a miracle. But here’s where I’m going.
The day after the election, I went round to appreciate my supporters. I decided to visit Sister Bola to thank her. She told me she lived at a particular house not far from the Post Office at Takie, Ogbomoso.
The house was on the main road around where Bovas Filling Station is located now. I got to that house that afternoon and saw a lady who pointed upstairs when I asked for Sister Bola’s room. It was an old building with wooden staircase.
As I made to climb the stairs, the lady told me something that still gives me goosebumps till date. Sister Bola came to the house on election day, brought a van and evacuated her belongings. When fellow occupants asked her why she was moving, she said her assignment is over. I went upstairs and saw the room padlocked.
I went back to her Department. She had told me she was a student in the Faculty of Agriculture. I double checked from the lecturers and many students. I described her- dark, a bit chubby, round cheeks, plaited her hair (with rubber). No one had seen her before. No one existed with that description.
Till date, I have not seen Sister Bola. That happened around 1997. I believe she was an Angel sent by God. I believe in the supernatural. You may not believe, but your lack of faith will not make my faith of no effect. Hebrews 13:2 says, “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Do you have a similar angelic experience?
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, send Your Angels to guide me in all my quest and ways henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Lord’s Day!
