Emmanuel Kayode Fadeyi is a refugee/immigrant who has become a resident/citizen of Brussels.
He, like all those who take this journey, has experienced his own share of serious struggle, seen days of crushing challenge and stared down intimidating impossibility.
He has had plenty of reason to give up, to go negative or to grow bitter in his heart … but he did none of those things!
We know now that many others have taken that road and become hopeless, bitter and negative … to the point that they suffer great loss and they perpetuate their pain by hurting others.
Emmanuel’s response to the recent bombings touched me and I wanted to share it with you. His words represent how the vast majority of those that I know feel about their host nations.
This dear African brother speaks from the heart and obviously his prayer is filled with gratitude & grace!
Here is the voice of a “faithful heart!”
BELGIUM! BELGIUM!! BELGIUM!!!
THE LAND OF PEACE, THE LAND OF FAVOUR, THE LAND OF MERCY.
YOU OPEN YOUR HANDS TO RECEIVE FOREIGNERS.
YOU ARE FAITHFUL TO US WHEN WE ARE NOT FAITHFUL TO YOU.
YOU GAVE US FREE MEDICAL CARE THAT OUR PARENTS AND COUNTRIES COULD NOT GIVE US.
YOU PROTECT OUR HUMAN RIGHTS AND DIGNITY.
YOU CHERISH LIFE SO MUCH THAT YOU SEND AN AMBULANCE AND POLICE TO RESCUE A DOG, HOW MUCH MORE FOR A HUMAN BEING.
YOU GAVE US GOOD EDUCATION THAT WILL MAKE OUR LIVES MEANINGFUL TO THE SOCIETY AND BE A BLESSING TO OUR DIFFERENT NATIONS.
GOD BLESS YOU BELGIUM.
IT IS WELL WITH YOU BELGIUM.
“PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM; MAY THOSE WHO LOVE YOU BE SECURE. MAY THERE BE PEACE WITHIN YOUR WALLS AND SECURITY WITHIN YOUR CITADELS. FOR THE SAKE OF MY BROTHERS AND FRIENDS. I WILL SAY, PEACE WITHIN YOU. FOR THE SAKE OF THE HOUSE OF THE LORD OUR GOD, I WILL SEEK YOUR PROSPERITY.” (Psalm 122:6-9).
LORD, PLEASE COMFORT THE FAMILIES THAT LOST THEIR LOVED ONES IN THE BOMB BLASTS IN JESUS NAME.
GOD BLESS BELGIUM (AMEN).
Isn’t this powerful?
A Faithful Heart Speaks … And Needs To Be Heard!
I want to encourage you to share Emmanuel’s message far & wide!
Emmanuel … God bless you & may your voice be heard over the nations … and may your prayer for Belgium be fulfilled!
