My life is a miracle

God represents many things to different people, to some, He is someone they go to when they need a favour, desire one miracle or the other but to some people like Dr Paul Olisa Ojeih, God is his life.

God represents many things to different people, to some, He is someone they go to when they need a favour, desire one miracle or the other but to some people like Dr Paul Olisa Ojeih, God is his life.

He believes there has been nothing left to chance or luck in his life. The Delta State natural medicine practitioner believes he would have been a dead man but for the mercy of God. He told Daily Sun that he is not just a born again Christian but a firebrand one.

“Jesus Christ is my Saviour, my King, my Lord, my energy, my strength, my wisdom, my sleep and my life. My relationship with him is that of a child to a father. I see him as my God.”

Prayer is my access to God. That is the way I communicate with him. He hears and answers me. For instance, there is rivalry in my profession. There are a lot of things that will test your faith and God has delivered me from them all. For the past five years, I have battled one thing or the other and I am pushing on because His assurance is there.

I am a miracle. My life is a miracle. With all the difficulties and attempts to assassinate me, I have survived. There was a time armed robbers stormed my house. They were shooting and I was shooting too. They entered into my living room, climbed upstairs and only a door separated me, my family and them. They said Oga, we don enter. We will kill you today and burn down this house. That your yeye clinic wey you dey take make noise, we go leave here and go burn am. I was rejecting it in Jesus name. I told my wife that we have two guns. You pray while I fire. When they came upstairs, they fired and I replied with fire and they were shouting, you wan kill us.

We exchanged fire for more than three hours and the police did not come even though I called them. It was the police at Maryland that raced down after another frantic call to my place in Ogba. The robbers had earlier locked the entrance gate to the estate so that no one can come in. it was a planned assassination attempt. They set to my house on the ground floor and I told God to make it a holy fire. The whole estate was frantic but God did not allow them to come in. There were holes everywhere but God delivered my whole family and me. That was a great miracle.

Again, two days earlier, prior to the assassination attempt in my house, the Gerndarmes arrested me in Togo. I was asking God if He would allow me to die like a rat. They were laughing at me when I was calling on Jehovah. I prayed like Paul and Silas and before 6 a.m, they set me free and returned my jeep. They beat me mercilessly but it could have been worse. God delivered me out of their hands. That was a great miracle to me and less than 72hours later, God delivered me again. I live to tell the stories. A lot of people may not have lived through that.

Fulfillment and Inspiration
My personal relationship with God keeps me going. In my clinic, we have over 52 different products. That is not man’s work but God. We are an icon in the pharmaceutical industry and I formulate every single one of the drugs and products. That is not man’s work. God is my inspiration. I sit down and listen when God is speaking. Although I can’t say I am fulfilled in life yet. My fulfillment will come when medicine is practised with a human face.

Heaven or Hell
I am a candidate for heaven. Big one. I look forward to enjoying my life and living a stress free life just like He promised.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.

Fay(Katy, Texas, US)says...

Actually translates to bravehearted.
