“Where are you going tomorrow?” Mrs Akhiwu paused, a tad perplexed. There was no prior dialogue that pointed to such a question. Why was the man of God asking such? “For an exam,” she hurriedly replied. “Don’t worry – you are going to pass.” Her heart skipped a beat. Did he know she had failed this exam on three consecutive occasions? What gave him such assurance to release such a statement? “Amen, sir,” was the only response Helen could muster.
For Mrs Helen Akhiwu, stagnancy marred her blossoming career as a pediatrician with repeated failure in examinations despite her academic excellence and studious preparation. One day, with Emmanuel TV on in her house, Prophet T.B. Joshua began to pray for viewers around the world. Rushing towards the screen, Helen began praying along with him, committing her career challenges into the hands of the Almighty. At that moment, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied a Heavenly declaration – “Be released to where you belong!” As she joined her faith with his, Mrs Akhiwu found herself sprawling on the floor, the power of God descending heavily within her house.
Upon seeing the dramatic encounter, her husband had a simple word of advice – get to The SCOAN immediately! Privileged to meet Prophet T.B. Joshua in his office, he told her directly that she would pass the exam – even though she never mentioned her past failures or plans to retake the exam to him.
Brimming with confidence the following day, Mrs Akhiwu set out for the exam venue undeterred by the rain that began to pour. As she stepped out, the rain stopped – only to restart the second she entered the venue. God was involved! “I could feel the difference in the atmosphere,” Helen reminisced, stating that everything about the oral examination exceeded her expectations.
Shortly after the exam had concluded, Helen was given the good news – not only had she passed the exam but was told her results were ‘exceptional’! “I am now a qualified Consultant Pediatrician and can be referred to by my new title Dr Mrs Helen Akhiwu,” she ecstatically told The SCOAN congregation. Indeed, she was released to where she belonged in Christ Jesus!
