in this article, am telling on how i met God and he explained the reason he called me to join the ministry after he saved me from street and from death, is a wonderful story.

God is amazing.

Did you know that you can date God? Just follow the story and you will understand what I mean.
After I got born again, in 2011 I got married and then in 2012, God called me to join full time ministry. I was overjoyed because after I got saved, God had put me in a situation where I had to learn how to rely on Him for everything. I didn’t have permanent job, I used to depend on my spiritual Dad for day to day living and house rent. It was difficult but God was faithful to me. I struggled a lot in 2011 but then in 2012 January, I joined ministry for one year internship.
Six months down the line, I was in the ministry trying to understand how working in church means. I was helped with sound in the church during the Sunday service but on weekdays I sat on my desk in the office, exploring the computer, helping with various tasks here and there. But why was I here? What had God called me to do? That was my big question everyday.
One day I was with one of my friends whom I found in ministry and who is now my supervisor. We were sharing our stories and without him knowledge, I was actually picking some points from him. He shared a story with me how encountered God and I was like “wow!! I like that and I think I will try.” I didn’t tell him but inside my heart; I was determined to have such an encounter.
That evening in my house, after my wife had cooked, we ate and then she went to sleep. I was alone watching TV and after a few minutes, I was thought that was the best time for me to invite God. I had so many questions to ask him. I switched off the TV, I took my bible and I read a verse which says “But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in His holy name” (John 1:12) then I closed my bible and welcome him saying, Dad welcome now let us reason together as scriptures says in the book of Isaiah.
Suddenly I felt that something had changed: the atmosphere, the light in the house and I felt like I was not alone is like someone is with me, then I saw something like a screen appeared where the TV was and I saw my self there in a scene, before I got saved when I was a thug. It was an incident at Harambee avenue, Nairobi, when I stole a vehicle’s headlight and mob surrounded me. When the owner came, he said “He has been stealing my car parts every now and then I will show him !” He opened the car boot, removed a small three-in-one axe, which has three types of blades and he started to slice my head, not once or twice.
I didn’t realize how much danger I was in I saw my blood coming out like a rain. I collapsed and became unconscious. When I came to, held him on his waist asking for mercy, and because my hands and clothes were filled with blood, he said in Swahili “enda ukakufie bali” Go and die far from here. During this encounter, I saw myself rise up, like a person who is out of their mind. I walked about two hundred meters and I fell down somewhere on the streets. Before this encounter with God, I had no recollection of what had happened because when the mob started beating me I became unconscious. But now God was showing me everything.
After this, I was amazed and very frightened. Then I heard a clear voice asking me: when that happened, did you go to any hospital? I remembered that I didn’t go to any hospital. How many people would get sliced like that and be healed without going to hospital? I don’t know, I answered. He told me to open the Bible in the book of Ezekiel chapter 16:6. “When I passed by you and saw you rolling about in your blood, I said to you in your blood, live! Yes, I said to you still in your natal blood, live! ……………….. If you continue read that scripture you will see what God said on that day. Read up to verse fourteen. Then I was like wah! so God you knew me before I came to salvation.
At that time my mind was running, asking myself: what is meaning of all this? Then I said: okay. Now father that you shown me all that, what is my purpose to you? I have entered a covenant with you that you will be mine and I will be yours, I have put a ring in my right hand, tell me father the work am supposed to do. And God directed me to the book of Matthew 28:17-20, which says: go then and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them into the name of the father and of son and of Holy Spirit, teaching them what I been teaching you, and behold I am with you till the end of ages.
This story I shared on how I encountered God, trying to show you that everything is possible with God. From that time till now I can tell you I have seen God working on and in me. The scripture in the book of Philippians 4:13 says I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me. Amen
