Singer Obiora Obiwon has taken to his Instagram page to share on how God saved him from the jaw of death. He was first misdiagnosed and then later found out that he had appendiceal mass in his stomach. Later on, he had heart palpitating due to an injection he was given. Not wanting to give up, he started singing and praying and the heart palpitation stop. Later in the day doctor friends confessed to him that they didn’t think he will make it past the night.
Read what he said below
I’m thanking You, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God. Psalm 9:1-2 MSG_On this day a year ago I entered what was the most trying season of my life. It was a matter of life and death. What seemed to be fever with stomach pain dovetailed into a complicated matter with my abdomen. After an initial misdiagnosis while my situation got worse, I was by a divine stroke of mercy evacuated at the nick of time as an emergency case to another hospital_On the journey to the other hospital, I could feel myself slipping. I was so weak I couldn’t talk. My stomach was bloated. I didn’t mind leaving bearing in mind the pain I had been through for about a week by then, but at that point God reminded me of my wife and children who would bear the brunt if I gave up easily_I was stabilised at the new place and a gastroenterologist attended to my matter. However all along this was a deep spiritual battle. I had previously been shown the battle in dreams. I shared with my egbon prayer partner Tmac as well as my pastor @nathanielblow who prayerfully supported me through out. I received so much quality medical care at the new place that I believed the battle was already over… but that was as far as human knowledge and wisdom could go. There was a fight that needed to be won in the spirit_After the surgical procedure to evacuate the “appendiceal mass” discovered in my stomach, I was supposed to heal and stabilize but it wasn’t so. One particular night ordinary paracetamol injection caused by heart to start palpitating. The doctor in charge asked if I had a history of heart problems, I didn’t. I was frustrated. I asked to be left alone. I wanted to live but my body wasn’t healing. We had prayed and prayed and received victory but I was getting worse. As I pondered what the Lord was doing and if it was my time, I heard Him whisper clearly “Spirit of Life”. I repeated in my mind that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Life. Then I hear another one: “If the Spirit which raised Jesus from the dead be in you, how much more will He quicken your mortal body”
