Bishop David Abioye, the vice president of the Living Faith Church Worldwide spoke to his members in a recent meeting. The sermon was posted on an online TV and he shared a story of what happened when his wife was partially dead.
He revealed that some years back, his late father and my mum visited them early on a Sunday morning. His mum went to the bathroom and she slumped and he was called. He then went to the corner and said, “Lord, you know I am serving you, I am going to church right now, prove yourself right now.” He said that they took her half dead, half alive to the Hospital but he got back to church very excited. He said that no pastor knew anything because it is not the matter of pastor to pastor, it’s a matter between you and God.
Speaking further, he said that when you are walking with God, you don’t even need people to join you in prayers because your righteousness will speak for you on the day of your trouble. That is why what you do in the corner is what determines your stand in the corner. He then revealed that she recovered from it. He said that he has seen several family situations, near-death situations and all he does is to smile and say Lord you know I am not faking my serving you.
According to Bishop Abioye, when the wife of God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo’s health was challenged very heavily, one day, he said before God, “Lord, if you heal her, you are my God, if you don’t heal her, you are still my God.” He then went around jumping from nation to nation serving God, and she came back strong and agile till today.
Finally, he said that If you want to call on the Lord on the day of trouble and for him to hear you. Let your hands be clean, all these suspicious corner actions won’t work. Righteousness pays in the days of trouble.
