In my morning class at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry my pastor asked us if there was any fear God wanted us to face. If a fear came to mind he asked us to do a physical act to declare the opposite of that fear. The two fears brewing in me were the fear of not having enough finances and the fear of being insignificant so I spoke out loud to my classmates that I wanted to be “a voice to a generation” and I was believing for “financial miracles.”
That night I was contacted by a recruiter via my LinkedIn profile to interview for a position as Senior Software Developer: Government Intelligence at Bloomberg L.P. in New York City! The role would include building algorithmic systems to answer questions like, How do government actions influence financial markets? What is the best way to model the potential impact of government actions on financial markets? Which companies benefit from government activities and which are negatively impacted?
It’s not a coincidence that after I declared “a voice to a generation” and “finances” I got home to an email from Bloomberg, one of the world’s largest and leading financial giants, inviting me for an interview. After much consideration, I decided not to pursue the job. I felt God wanted me to remain at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry so I continued to work remotely for a software engineering company based in Africa. However, my season of favor didn’t end there. Two weeks later, unexpectedly, an opportunity opened up for my engineering company to work with Google-YouTube. I had the privilege of being the point of contact for my team and we went on to successfully collaborate and certify our product, becoming the first African company to collaborate with Google-YouTube! God is continuing to give me favor and transform the way I see myself. God wants us to know we are made for greatness and distinction.
