Recently, I applied twice for a place in an educational program that I had my heart set on. Two institutions offered the program. The first institution I applied to picked candidates through balloting and I was unsuccessful. I was so disappointed I gave up.
Later, a friend encouraged me to apply to the second institution. I was reluctant as it had a very rigorous selection process. I applied anyway but was not too hopeful about the outcome.
I was really surprised when I was shortlisted for an interview. Up till I entered the interview room, I didn’t think I would make the cut as I was not as qualified as the other candidates. After the interview, I was even more certain of defeat.
However, after the interview, I watched your sermon titled, Say Amen To God’s Promises. I gained confidence and prayed to God, saying, “Father, I know I do not qualify, but I say ‘Amen’ to Your promise, that anything that I ask in Jesus’ name, You will do. Please give me a place in the program.”
I went to the school’s notice board the next day and, lo and behold, my name was on the list of accepted candidates!
I am extremely grateful to God my Father for His unending love and kindness toward me even when I do not have enough faith, and to His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, whose sacrifice has made us heirs of the world.
I am also grateful to Pastor Prince, who has taught me to go boldly into the presence of a loving God. I used to feel unworthy but through Pastor Prince’s teachings, I have gained great confidence in God’s love for me, and the fact that He will answer whenever I call on Him for help.
Pastor Prince, I pray that you will spread the gospel of grace throughout Africa, and to my country, Ghana. God bless you.
