My testimony – Iam from Bangalore

Hi friends, My name is vinay. I am from bangalore, india. Currently iam going through a rough patch in my life. Its such a wonder that we remember our Almighty God, in an instant, only when pain strikes us. Same is the case with me. I came to God, when i was in trouble, prayed and rejoiced in HIM when HE solved my problems and again fell back because of the worldly trials and temptations.

To cut my story short, I moved to Bangalore in May 2011 from Hyderabad, becoz of some personal reasons. I did the stupidest thing ever. I have quit my job without having a new job in hand. But our Almighty God is a wonder working Lord. Though I didnt have a job in hand, I NEVER starved even for a single day. Hallelujah !!!

I prayed to God that I should get a job and he showed a way miraculously.. I cleared all the rounds and just one last round was pending. But one day I got a doubt whether I would really clear that pending round or not. Just on that day, I got a call from that company saying that my salary expectations are high, and I dont stand a chance of a job there. My heart sank. Still I prayed without giving up a hope. On the 3rd day, I prayed with full force and I knew in my heart that I would get THAT job. Miraculously, on the same day, I got a call from that company itself, that my candidature has been re-considered and they would be sending me the offer letter the same day. I prayed and thanked God, but by evening, again the Satan has put a doubt again that I may not be getting the offer. True to my doubts, I didnt get the offer letter that day. They said it would take 2 more days, as the vice president was out of country and 2 days later, i got the news that they hired someone else. This happened on June 27th.

God taught me a lesson that If we pray and believe wholeheartedly, EVERYTHING is possible and even Mountains can move. On June 27th, 2011 I prayed to God with a steadfast faith and I opened my email account to check my emails. To my surprise, I found a mail which was lying in my inbox fromm June 15th onwards, and I havent opened it. When I went through the mail, it was an interview call from a different company. To make things easy, lets call it Company “XYZ”. I forwarded my resume to them, and personally spoke to them over the phone ( after praying, ofcourse 🙂 )!!! They said that they wud get back to me in a day or 2, but nothing happened till June 29th. On June 28th, I prayed to the God and made an agreement with the HolySpirit God at 3:30 PM in the noon, that if he fullfils my wishes 1,2,3.. I would inturn do 3 things for him. Out of those 3 things that I asked for, the first thing that i expected my God to do was give me a job with so and so salary. In turn I promised to give my testimony to every one. I even wrote an agreement copy between me and JESUS CHRIST of NAZARETH, keeping the HOLY SPIRIT as the witness between both of us.

On June29th, I prayed and called up the XYZ company guys. They asked me to come down for an interview in the afternoon at 4 PM. Before going for the interview, i prayed and went. I knew deep down in my heart that God was doing a miracle. I finished the interview by 6PM. Immediately on June 30th morning at 11 AM, I got a call from the manager of the company asking if I can join them on the same day. I was shocked. That was the fastest that i could ever imagine. But the salary that they quoted was not the one that I asked God for. It was way less. But God was testing my patience. I told the management that I am looking for a good hike and trust me, the salary that they quoted second time was THE SAME that i asked God for. All this happened, with out any negotiations. Hallelujah !!!!

God kept his word and gave me the job with the salary that I was looking for. HE was very faithful. But it took me 6 months time to publish the testimony, as I kept giving excuses.

Now that i am in the middle of a new problem, I suddenly remembered God and the promises that I gave him. God plz forgive me for my sins. You know what my condition is. Let me remain faithful to you. You know the problem that Iam going through. Please show me a way to be victorious over my problem. I know you will DEFINITELY DO IT. Amen.
I will definitely publish the wonderful thing that You did in my life, AS SOON AS I Get the solution to my current problem.

What do YOU think?

    I too have and still struggle with unbelief and doubt. In all things God is able to make a way where in the natural world as we see it there is no way. But sometimes we get into our head. Playing ourselves against Gods Word. Asking if He will really do it for me or for us. That is the time we must rely on the faith of our stronger Christian brother and sister. We cannot continue to be double minded. If we are pray for forgiveness and mercy. Get into Gods Word. I have found a good place for me to meditate is the book of Psalms. David doubted at times. But always trusted God when he meditated on His Word.

  2. I am not good at remembering names & numbers. However I remember in th old testament, A man made a vow to God that if he would make him victorious in battle that the first thing to greet him When he arrived home, that he would sacrifice. Well God made him victorious in the battle & when he came home the first thing to see him wasn’t a dog or other animal. It was his Daughter. When she found out that she must be sacrifIced. Sha asked her dad to give her a year to morn her virginity and her friends went into the hills and morned with her for a year then she returned & was sacrificed by her dad. So I would say to you, be carefull of the vows you make unto God. Because he will expect you to hold up to your part of the bargain.

      Yes, to remember all the good tidings on The Bible is near to never possible, but it is well said to the context. Yes, it is better not to vow, if did to stick to accomplish the vow.
      The incident you had mentioned is of The Book of Judges, Chapter 11, and the instance is of his VOWS (from Jephthah, the Gileadite) which ended up in the sacrifice of his only daughter, a virgin.
      God Bless!

    Our God keeps His Word, and we are to keep our Word too; if we don’t, we should look at ourselves as liars — and you know that no liar will make it to heaven. So, when we make a vow to God, we should not be slack in honoring it.

    Ecclesiastes 5
    [4] When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
    [5] Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

    Deuteronomy 23
    [21] When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee

      It is better not to make a vow,than to make a vow and break it. anything other than yes or no ,can easily come back to bite you,for we know not what tomorrow brings,therefore be content with the trouble of today.

    Hi Vinay!!
    Thank you for posting your testimony..and coming back to Jesus like 1 of the 10 lepers (Bible) thanking Him for healing..Psalm 50:14 says “Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High”.
    I have struggled with ‘Unbelief ‘ to that extent that Jesus had to remind me through a Man of God saying “Shanta, why are you anxious my child, why don’t you believe in ME”..I have prayed hard to remove this ‘thorn of unbelief’..God was merciful & patient with me and blessed me with a ‘spirit of Belief’..When i measure my faith, it is just the size of a mustard seed but that is enough to move the Mountains..
    Proverbs 3:5 – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”.
