Written March 16, 2020, before the enhanced community quarantine of Metro Manila
By: Rommel Agustin

If you are a Christian who fears and loves God, this is your finest hour!

Let me share my testimony:

Early on March 16, 2020, I received a message from Pastor Nilo Cacela giving me a heads-up on the possibility of a greater level of community quarantine. Consequently, I headed to the supermarket. Lo and behold, the line was like that of a blockbuster movie’s.

I got the things we needed which were our usual grocery goods. While queuing, I felt like I needed to pray for the people who were waiting for their turn to pay. I had a little conversation with God asking for a chance to share Him to the supermarket shoppers.

Came the idea that I would go to the public address (PA) system of the supermarket and use it to speak to the crowd. And how timely it was that a manager whom I knew passed by! I asked permission from her, and she said she would ask higher management.

Praise God, I was given the green light!

I declared Psalm 91 through the PA system, and I prayed for everyone at the supermarket.

I praise God for the strength and courage to do this!

How about you, what does God want you to do?

This is your finest hour! Let Jesus lead you.


P.S. Thanks to Manager Edna. Also, I went home and took a shower– both physically with water and spiritually (with Jesus’ blood) for protection
