This was the striking message I got from tumblr.com, where I go to hear from God.  And God is really greater than anything we may ever face!  This morning I woke up thinking about someone who I KNOW God arranged to help my hubby and I with a challenge we faced last year.  In a business dinner conversation, someone casually mentioned that we should do a Google search to find someone who could help us in a very specific area.  I did this the next day and the first person I contacted agreed to meet us in his office for a free consultation.  He ended up spending 3 hours with us for free and that time with him helped to answer so many questions I had in my mind in regards to this problem.


In the meeting, he sensed I was a bit anxious and the words he said I will never forget:  FEAR NO ONE!  As soon as he said that I calmed down, like I was hearing directly from God.


“I have told you these things, so that in Me (God) you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” John 16:33 Amplified Bible (AMP)


Maybe a week after meeting with him, I needed to ask him another question and shortly after sending him an email on a Saturday he gave me his cell number to call him.  He again blew me away when he said that a certain point, when we’ve done all that we can do, we have to just turn things over to God.  I did exactly that and I remember saying to God, “I’m turning this matter over to You.’  Everything worked out beautifully!


I’ll never forget that Christmas we begged my hubby for us to travel and he kept saying no.  At the very last minute he agreed and we flew from Nigeria to the US, where I was able to meet this gentleman and finally resolve this issue that was pending for months!


Greater is He.
