“…Instead of your former shame, dishonor and reproach, you shall have a twofold recompense, DOUBLE HONOR in the same land. Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, your inheritance in THE SAME LAND would be doubled and your joy would go on forever…” Isaiah 61; 7 (E’s mix version)
I got this Word a few years back. I was a Pharmacy school student then, despising the course but studying it anyways because… well… Family. As expected, it made ZERO sense, especially as IN THE SAME PLACE was highlighted in neon green in my spirit man. But I recognize God when He speaks to me of me.
A year after I got the Word, I failed out of Pharmacy school and WHAM!!! World War 1-3 in the Ajaero family. The Word was a spoil of the war, lost and forgotten. But this post is not about all that. It is to celebrate a victory in the Word.
So shall my WORD be tht goeth forth out of my mouth. It shall not return to me void (useless, without producing effect, empty handed). It shall accomplish, it shall prosper in that which I sent him And no word that proceeds out of my mouth in righteousness and return void. Isaiah 55;11
God always make sense. ALWAYS. We may not get it then but ultimately, the Word would produce for us.
Fast forward, three years post Pharmacy school and now a graduate of a course that was made for me, that I absolutely LOVE- SOCIOLOGY and now serving, Someone rang me from Pharmacy school. I was being invited to come and speak to the students on THE FOUR T’s; The Truth.The Test.The Trial.The Triumph.
So Eziaha Ajaero, that got the BOOT would address Pharmacy school and they would listen. In the same place. The same girl. The ONLY true God.
I didn’t wanna go especially because my days get busier and busier but God just dropped that Word in my spirit man and I knew I had to. I spoke to ‘Aku m’ and he said I should go.
I gave my Word to honor the invite. As you read this, I would have given the talk or maybe I am giving it already…
If for nothing, to show off THE GOD IN ME… And His WORD THAT WORKSs.
One thing God told me as I cried and cried when my Prof told me my result was that He didn’t give me a first class degree to get a job with. He didn’t need it to land me any job. He gave it to me to be LIGHT. To show him off. To share my story everywhere and inspire people. My life, post-Uni is just beginning and I must tell you, so far, it has been FABULOUS. And of course, He is not done YET.
You are the light of the world…
I didn’t do this to show off. I did this to encourage someone.
God is LIMIT-LESS. He can use ANYTHING. Failure inclusive.
God can use ANYONE. ‘Failures’ inclusive.
He watches over His Word to perform it. And now, the Lord hath performed the Word that he spake and fulfilled the promise he made. He has done what He said He will do I kings 8; 20a (E’s mix version)
