“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17
“You are here moving in our midst, I worship You, I worship You… You are Way-maker, Miracle-Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the darkness. My God, that is who You are.” Ever since Waymaker’s release, these lyrics has stayed with me and whenever I want a reminder of the lyrics, I’d replay the song on YouTube.
Today’s experience brought me back to the song once more—not because I needed some cogent encouragement packaged in a mellifluous piece, but because of one man’s faith. He stared death in the face but he held onto God. In his own words, he said God is the Way-maker, Miracle-Worker, Promise-keeper, and Light in the darkness.
The man trusted God; he trusted God at His words.
“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17) This promise was fulfilled in this man’s life and we come to know him as one of the survivors of the Rwanda Genocide.
Sometimes we don’t pray because we don’t want to be disappointed. This week, I want all of us to take decisions based on faith instead of fears. Let us ask God to fulfill the promise of Jeremiah 30:17 in our lives.
PS: Stay tuned for the upcoming testimonies shared by this man of faith I met earlier.
