Some weeks ago, during Thursday Showers, I picked a promise which said that God will cover me. I felt it was a wrong promise because it was a miracle I needed as I have been jobless for some years. Then, I had a job interview at Lekki the following Tuesday, so I prepared for it on Monday. At night of that Monday, I had a dream where Pastor Taiwo woke me up and said, “The blood of Jesus protects you.” I woke up immediately and I said “NO, it is not protection I need now but breakthrough on the job interview”. So, I started praying and converted the protection to breakthrough and after the prayer, I prepared for the interview.
While at my bus stop in Ikorodu, a car drove by calling Lekki passengers. About five of us rushed into the car and we started the journey. As we got to Alapere, I perceived the spray of a perfume and that was the last thing I remembered; we all slept off. Then, in my sub-conscious state, I felt pastor Taiwo’s hand tapping me again saying, “it’s time to go.” I woke up and discovered that we were at NNPC and Rainbow bus stop on Festac road. I looked at the other four people and discovered that they were still sleeping.
Then I shouted at the driver and queried him on why he changed the route; that we were supposed to be on our way to Lekki, what are we doing at Festac. He shouted back at me to shut up. Then he made a call and told the person on the other end, “Oga, one spanner has woken up o.” and I heard the voice from the other line said, “Waste the spanner.” That was when it occurred to me that I had been kidnapped. Then I started praying to God to rescue me. How can I be looking for job and lose my life? The guy kept shouting at me to keep quiet and I refused, telling him that I won’t keep quiet. Then he asked which church I attend and I told him The Fountain of Life Church.
He then told me that my blood is special as he didn’t feel like killing me. He asked me to give him my phone and other things I had on me. I initially hesitated to give him my phone, but when he touched me with his gun and I felt the hotness of the gun, I released it. He then asked me to go out of the car and he threw me out of the car. I only sustained injuries but my life was saved.
I want to thank God who covered and protected me and didn’t allow me to lose my life. Halleluyah!
