Hi there! It’s always a joy to come your way by the mercies of God. Today I want us to ponder over: “The Mysteries Of God”! A mystery is something difficult to understand.
The Mysteries of God are so powerful that they beat the imagination of most of us. I have come across numerous mind blowing stories I marveled and asked myself several questions.
There’s this young woman in my hood about 28 years of age, co-habiting with a young man and their children. They are “care takers” of someone’s house. The lady doesn’t work, and the man has no proper job for a living. Once a while I see her and ask how they are faring.
She became pregnant with her sixth child🙄. One day she mastered courage and narrated her story to me. So pathetic!
She told me she doesn’t attend anti natal let alone take multivitamin or blood tonics. Looking at her situation I prayed for safe delivery. She told me with her eyes filled with tears, most times she doesn’t eat the whole day and drinks only water. Sometimes only “gari and sugar”, other times if they were lucky they prepare “banku” ( A Ghanaian maize food) and pepper with or without fish. A month after our conversation, I met the man and he told me he was able to raise forty cedis for his woman’s upkeep at the hospital. Her time was due, and fortunately she had registered for the National Health Insurance Scheme. The following day she gave birth like the Hebrew women to a bouncing baby girl safely. Praise God!
My point is that, you cannot discount the Mysteries of God.
A poor woman with nothing, who doesn’t take any multivitamins or attends anti natal, gave birth safely to a bouncing baby girl. She has never had any surgery, blood transfusion or any complications. Isn’t God so wonderful! She has two set of twins, a boy, then this last baby girl. You see her and nothing shows she has given birth before. So cute and strong and her baby is healthy and doing very well. She’s almost six months. Most of you can attest to the fact that, there are a lot more out there especially porters (Kayayei in my local parlance) who are equally strong and they give birth safely.
Admittedly, a number of upper and middle class women are praying and fasting for just one child and yet nothing happens. Many a time quite a number of these class of women usually go through surgery, excrutiating pain and experience high blood pressure. Others too experience high level of complications which cannot be explained. Sometimes most mothers even lose their lives🤔. The good book says in Romans 9:16, “So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy”. Someone would say oh God, why don’t you shut the wombs of these poor and wretched women? Well, no one can understand the ways of God. Let’s fear God and live long!
Prayerfully let’s ponder over this scripture.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways my ways said the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”. Isaiah 55:8-9.
God’s knowledge and wisdom are far greater than any Human’s. Let’s think about the goodness and Sovereignty of God. He Is All Powerful🙌.
Have a lovely week. Thanks for reading. Love you all.
God bless you.❤️❤️
