I have been privileged over time to make the University College Hospital, Ibadan, sport field my secret place. Sometimes, I have to start up my day in His presence over there, take out time in the afternoon during lecture breaks and retire there late in the evening to have moments alone with God.
I get to see young men of like passion there too as they also press to gain ascendency to remain fervent and consistent in doing the demands of the faith that was delivered to us.
News of a particular young medical student began to come to my ears as some brethren have reports of how fervent and committed the young man is to prayers. I heard of the mighty things God is using him to do, how he could pray 8 to 10 hours in the spirit during his quite time, some said they hardly see him eat, how he is stirring up the heart of men to deep things of God.
Thought like; “I wish to meet this young man of like passion” filled my heart and I longed for a set time to meet him.
Of recent, I was privileged to be invited for a meeting in Lagos and a fellow post graduate colleague told me she saw the flier of a program I would be gracing soon and asked if I’m aware that one of the other guests is also a student in the college.
I did my findings and discovered it was the same young man I heard of and been longing to meet. I said to myself; “now the set time has come”.
There I was on the day of the meeting. I was accompanied by the convener and the protocols to the ministers’ office in the auditorium. As the door was opened and I stepped in, the desired man of like passion hugged me so closely immediately as we both prayed in the spirit till we felt a mighty stirring from within us. His first word to me before we got to know ourselves was “You are my brother”.
Those that accompanied me couldn’t believe their eyes as they imagined how we couldn’t wait to exchange pleasantries first before embracing ourselves in such manner as we prayed in the spirit. They wondered if we had met before but I told them; “we are connected in the spirit”.
That consciousness of our agreement in faith and connection in the spirit opened us up to the confidence of experiencing the supernatural in that meeting. To the glory of God, there was a mighty demonstration of the power of God in diverse manifestations.
Dear minister, if you see men that carry a grace you desire, celebrate it and don’t be jealous. Any grace you attack, you can’t attract. Any grace you despise, you can’t receive.
Connect to a man of like passion today. Don’t let envy rob you of the fellowship of men of like passion.
