God set me free. Literally!

This is the testimony of Sergio, a drug addict in rehabilitation at the Good Samaritan Drug Rehabilitation Centre (El Buen Samaritan) in Spain, and how God set him free from an almost certain prison sentence.

Sergio had committed a crime and was awaiting trial.  “I prayed to the Lord every day for my freedom. I knew that I did not deserve it, because I was guilty, but I had repented of my sins.”

A couple of days later, on the day of the trial, one of the Centre’s therapists accompanying Sergio to court gave him a verse that said that the Lord was going before him. As the sentence of 6 months imprisonment and 2 years without crime was pronounced, Sergio’s lawyer asked for a suspension of the penalty which was granted!

Sergio commented:”I left the courthouse and I was so happy that I could only say: 'Lord, it's really You, it's really You, I can't believe it, you're really good.'"

Sergio’s sister commented that it had to be a miracle as this pronouncement had looked impossible.
