“My grace is sufficient for you, for my
power is made perfect in weakness” 2 Corinthians 12 9a
my WAEC, I took a decision to stop cheating in exams. For this reason, I tried
to avoid unnecessary temptations. However, my second JAMB exams (Joint Admissions
Matriculation Board), confronted me with an unexpected temptation. Somehow,
JAMB reported that my scripts were not available. This caused me a huge delay.
With 10 minutes to the end of my exams, I had about 30% unanswered questions.
With imminent failure staring me in the face, and permission by sympathizing
invigilators to seek “help” from anyone, I fell into malpractice. As I left the
hall that day, I knew that although I may pass my exams, I had failed the test.
With Christians, success does not lie in results but in keeping faith even in
The Gospel gives us such victory over the fear of
failures and every weakness in us. We know nothing separates a believer from
God’s love because He chose us when we were weak and frail so that we can now
fix our gaze on Him, away from ourselves.
after I repented, I resolved to prepare for my future exams. Whenever I found
myself in situations out of control, I always remember that real failure is not
failing that exam. Rather, I leaned on God’s sufficient grace, and I knew that
my life and future was secured in Him even if I failed or passed!
