Testimony of God’s Redemption with Ron McMillon, Gospel Jazz Saxophonist (Episode # 452)

When Jacob’s son Joseph dreamed of the sun, moon, and stars bowing down to him he could not have imagined God’s path to the fulfillment of that prophetic dream. Likewise, God gave a vision to top 30 Billboard recording artist and gospel jazz saxophonist Ron McMillon. In Ron’s vision, he saw himself with a saxophone in one hand and a Bible in the other. Even in fiery trials and darkness when the vision seemed far away, God was still on the throne preserving Ron’s life and working all things out for his good.

Have you ever wondered if your mistakes are too great for God to manifest His gifts and calling in your life or to redeem you? Join Dr. Karen today as Ron McMillon shares words of hope, healing, and recovery in his testimony. God is brighter than the darkness and bigger than any problem. He will get the glory and honor from our lives even when we take wrong turns.
