Faith & Obedience Brings A Chain of Miracles
Excerpted from my book, With These Broken Wings
A Chain of Miracles
I had been at a seriously low ebb financially in my life for quite a while to the tune of about $3,000. I had prayed fervently and fasted for a breakthrough. One day while driving home, after I had just received about $400 for some contractual work done, I heard the Lord clearly directing me to give $70 out of it to an evangelical ministry that I was connected with. At first, I was a little incredulous as I had been thinking how absolutely inadequate the amount was in the face of my huge debt. But, because I was sure that it was the Lord speaking to me, I immediately obeyed.
I went straight to the office of the ministry in question, and announced to the evangelist that I was led by the Lord to give this amount into his ministry. He was a little taken aback at first because he knew of my dire situation and was one of my prayer partners. However, I was persistent and flatly told him, “Do not rob me of my blessing!” then he finally acquiesced and accepted the money. A few days later, I attended a special ministry service and received a word of prophecy that I was going to receive a major breakthrough in a matter of days!
About seven days later, a friend of mine who had just been made redundant from her job and received a lump sum, actually called me up and told me that she had a cheque for me. “For me?”, I asked incredulously “Yes”, she insisted. “What for?” I asked. She said that she was led by the Lord to bless me in this way! When I got the cheque, I nearly fainted – it was in the amount of $3,000 – the exact amount that I needed to clear my debts. She had no way of knowing this. It was a miracle! This was a major testimony for me for months, which in turn helped many persons in their faith.
But, it didn’t end there. During my time of dire financial straits, I had shared with Pastor Ron Johnson with a view to having him pray for me. He did more than that – he lent me about $260.00. When I called him to tell him of the miracle that I just experienced and to arrange to repay him, he surprised me by saying, “Oh, didn’t I tell you – that was a gift!” “Really?!” I asked, trying not to gasp too loudly, while secretly wishing that if this was a dream, I would not be wakened. I thanked him and hung up the phone, a bit dazed.
About seven days later I received the following email from him…
I just thought I would share with you a most amazing testimony…
Back in April 2000, Mark Thomas prophesied a number of things to me. Many of them had to do with my house and I noticed that a few months ago some of them started to be fulfilled. He also prophesied that I would be driving a four-wheel drive vehicle. Since I knew that I could not deal with that at the time, I noted it.
Recently, I had to go down to Hampton High School with Anne and a call came to me on the cellular phone informing me that I was the owner of a brand new Land Rover Freelander. I was told that the gentleman had bought this vehicle for himself but before he could drive it, the Lord told him that it was not his and that he should deliver it to me. He said that he was a little hesitant as he had been excited about the vehicle and was a little unsure so he decided to call his wife on the phone and discuss it with her.
She answered the phone, but before he could speak she said to him,”Honey, I do not know if it is my mind or not, but it has come to me strongly that you should give the vehicle to Pastor Ron Johnson”! The price tag on the vehicle is $30,000.00. It is going to be transferred to me today and they have already insured it in my name.
I had up to this point, only read these things in books. I will be going to Canada this weekend for a week but as soon as I return, I shall show it to you. The gentleman said something very important. He said that the Lord told him that if he did not do it, He would ask someone else. That very day, a land transaction, which he had been struggling with for eight years, was miraculously settled…!

It was clear that the miracle was continuing, with him getting this brand new Land Rover and his benefactor getting a miraculous settlement of some major land deal that he had been struggling with for eight years…
