But instead, Chinedu started Blasphemy the name of the Lord. “Lord why Me? Why have you done this wicked to me? You’ve taken away my joy and you know we’ve being waiting upon you to add more child for me, but instead, the little one I have you took away from me, you are very wicked. I wonder why you have given me Ngozi when you know you are going to take her from me soon, I regret ever trusting you. I don’t believe you exist anymore.
The Doctors and Nurses around him were not really believer. But still this words sound disgusting in their ears, such that they quickly injected him with a sleeping injection. How can he say such horrible things against his creator? As they were preparing to take Ngozi to the mortuary. She suddenly came back to life. They were very surprised to see her back alive, the whole family was happy to be completed again.
Chinedu’s Mother was also staying with them, being an old woman, and a housemaid making 6 people living together. One day, Ngozi came back from school with a ring she picked on the floor of her school not knowing the owner. The following day her hands started decaying not knowing the cause. They treated and treated it but of no avail. After some months it starts stinking such that no one wants to stay around her, even hospital rejected her. After some months, her hand almost all her body was full of maggots, such that her loving father will not want to see her, and yet they can’t bury her alive.
One day her mother was cleaning the house and she found the Ring, she picked it and ask Emeka who is the owner. He said he doesn’t know, and his mother asked him to go and give it to her Mother in-law, perhaps she owns it. She collected it to check if it’s her own but was not and she also give it to the housemaid perhaps it belong to her. She said she’s not the owner, then she gave it to the gate-man to throw it away. The following day both the mother, Emeka, Mother-in-law, Housemaid and the Gate man hand start decaying too. After a year they all died. Mr. Chinedu went bankrupt because of this unknown sickness that sucked all his account, such that he sold his house, cars and all his property to pay back the money he owes, and went back to zero point.
He sat in a corner of a prison crying like a baby, he lost everything, his wife, his two children and his mother, not counting the gate-man and housemaid. He was the only suspect for the family of the housemaid claim he used their daughter for ritual, and this accusation landed him in prison. As he was crying, a voice spoke to him saying, are you now happy with this that’s happening to you? He said how do you mean, your daughter died in a car accidents and you started blaspheming the Lord your God, now can you see what would have happened to you if Ngozi has not died?
Suddenly he woke up in the hospital where the doctors injected him when blaspheming his God, he was surprised, for it never looks like dream, it looks real, then he kneel down and asked for mercy from God, and thank him for what he saved him from.
Dealing With Persecution And Challenges.
John 16:33 "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" Many times we became arrogant to the Lord with an arrogant mind because we have forgotten his promises. The moment the Lord is waiting for in your life is the moment you will humble yourself before the Lord, that he knows everything. A lot of believers make this great mistake all the time, when we have problem, instead of it turning to God and praise him for what has happened. We will begin to blame God, angry with God and saying “WHY ME”.
Imagine a clay asking his creator (potter) nasty question and queries about life misfortune that befalls on him. An element that has no authority over his creator , challenging his creator with queries. It pains God and he ever regretted dearly for creating humanity. But due to his divine nature of grace and mercy, He still remains the Almighty creator. However, in every situation, NEVER ask or queries your creator WHY ME. If it’s not you, then it can’t be any one. It has to be you so that you can give him all the glory and put Satan to shame.
