I want to bless the name of the Lord for divine protection.
On the 29th of May 2019, I attended the swearing in ceremony of Governor Oluseyi Makinde of Oyo State, Nigeria, and it went peacefully.
I left the stadium immediately the closing National Anthem was being sung, so as to beat traffic but to my amazement, everywhere was totally blocked.
No cab, no means of transport around.
I had to walk from Liberty road down to High Court/Mobile road.
Few minutes later, I heard the blast of sirens from behind, so I turned to see who was coming.
I then realized it was the convoy of a prominent King in South Western Nigeria.
They were driving at a high speed and reckless too. By the time they got close to where I was, they were on a dangerous zigzag movement, so people on the road (pedestrians) started running off the road but I maintained my walking pace on the pedestrian line.
The next thing I saw was that the man beside the driver in a black Jeep which was the last car on the convoy, pointed a gun at me.
I guess he was curious that I didn’t run when others did.
In the twinkle of an eye, he shot at me at a very close range.
Do you know what?
Elohim shomri (God my protector) captured the bullet!
By the time I was conscious of my environment, all I could see was the shell of the bullet right in front of me on the ground and I heard people screaming and shouting… Ko wole( it did not enter) omo agba ni (He’s the son of the elder) etc but I knew it could only have been God!
@Shouts of Grace Center, part of our confession is that we are protected and defended.
I bless God that he didn’t and will never disappoint his children.
My heart is full of gratitude to God Almighty.
