Scripture Reading:- Romans 8:26-39

Topic:- Let God Be On Your Side [1]

Text:- Romans 8:31

My first day in the Biology laboratory was a dreadful one. During a briefing session a day before we were to have practical during my 100 Level, we had been told that it is a customary to always put on the ‘laboratory coat’ each and every time we have practicals, hence whosoever without the laboratory coat will be punished.
I’d no money as at that time to buy laboratory coat, and the first practical came just too soon. I couldn’t borrow as my only friend in the School then was Asiwaju Olalekan Godson Ayodeji.

Anyway, I knew breaking the rule of not putting a ‘laboratory coat’ was a bad idea but I was young and wrong to take that risk. I had no choice than to enter into the laboratory room to get engaged with my fellow departmental mates.
Not quite long after I entered the lab, one of the Biology Lecturer who handled Biology practical came around.
He spotted few of us without the ‘laboratory coat’ and decided to play a fast track on us, he wanted to get hold of us. I was fortunate to be sitting near the entrance door, so I got away.
He was able to lay hands on few guys unaware but everyone of us that escaped went into his Black Book. He called our class rep then, and collected our Matric numbers. Printed them and pasted them in his Office. It was printed boldly. That was how myself and other guys that ran away failed both the Practical and the actual Biology course that year.

Personally, I sat for the same courses for good 6 years; making it 6 different times entirely. On my third year of rewriting, I summoned courage to visit him in his office. I went to see him to plead with him, he didn’t know me, he only knew of my Matric number.
So I’d to take the bull by the horn to explain what had happened. He laughed wickedly and angrily sent me away. I returned the next day. He told me, if I return again then it would be very bad and I won’t like it. I left him for a week. I consulted my Advisor, Dr. Mrs Adigun. I explained everything to her.
She told me, I should give him time, and to return to him after sometime. That he may consider my show of repentance. So I didn’t return for like a month.

Then one day, I was returning from a friend’s place Osisami Babalola Enitan on Friday after I had gone to play Chess, I saw him also returning from the Mosque. We both met along the School former Fine-art department, just by the way that leads to Alata eatery.
I quickly used the opportunity of meeting him just coming from the Mosque to plead yet again. He treated me like ‘poo’. He still went on to fail me even in my 400 Level.
On my final year, I went to him, then I was married. I took my pregnant wife to plead with him. He walked us out and told us never to come again. He promised to report to the School security. So we left.
He failed me for 5 years consecutively. It was hard for me. I wept for days. I told my parents, and few friends. It prevented me from going for NYSC with my Class 13′ set.

Then I turned to God. Yes, I was guilty and I deserved punishment but that was too much. I pray so much. So many different phases of life, most times it is always our fault that we find ourselves in difficult situations but immediately we get to seek God for help, he surely always provide us a solution to all of our problems. I seek God’s face and He never fails.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, help me to scale through whatever challenges before me by Your grace and fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. My Father! My Father! Fight for me and fight my battles henceforth, and give me victory always, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, be for me henceforth and let me always be in You always, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have a Lovely Saturday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
