Personal Story: Sam
Prior to being filled with the Holy Spirit at the age of 11, I was very much afraid of dying. After receiving the Holy Spirit, I one day just realised that I no longer feared death. God’s given me a peace and comfort in knowing that natural death can hold no power over me anymore.
Going through primary and high school definitely had its’ moments. There was a particular occasion of bullying where I really didn’t know what to do anymore. I remember just praying ‘Lord I can’t take it anymore, you take it’, and within minutes it was completely taken care of in a way that I still can’t get my head around, and was never a problem after that.
I used to get eczema on my hands. It was like I had flaky scabs all over my fingers, which would frequently split just as I bent my fingers, and would then bleed and water. I would wear a heap of Band-Aids to cover it, and to try and stop it from touching anything. We tried ointments and creams to clear it up, but nothing really worked. After praying about it for a while, the eczema completely disappeared, and hasn’t come back since.
Throughout my life, no matter what’s been going on, God has always taken care of my every need, just as He’s promised to do in His word. I can thank Him for giving me a future hope beyond this natural life, and for taking care of every situation that I’ve ever found myself in.
