Moreover, Jamandre shared these words of encouragement to his fellow PharMed. She said, “The Message I have to those who will take up the board exams is encapsulated in Zechariah 4:6 which says, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.’ God is our only true success factor. Ask for His guidance in every circumstance, and He is sure to supply more than enough wisdom and understanding to face whatever lies ahead. Remember that we serve a God of excellence who requires us to offer our best. Be obedient to God’s truth for He never fails to honor those who choose to honor Him. If you do stumble or if you meet with disappointments, look up to heaven and know that we serve a living God who has grand plans for all of us.
