Possessing His Possessions In The Year 2016

 

“Possessing Our Possessions” is our church’s theme for the year 2016 and this is based on the Old Testament story on how God delivered His people into the Promised Land after 40 years in the wilderness.

I was looking forward to what my Promised Land would be. But as time passed, it seemed as though I had spent most of my 2016 in the wilderness rather than the Promised Land.

Earlier this year, a family member went through a difficult time and I took time to help her through it. I also performed poorly in my sales as I tried to protect my client's interests by advising them not to take unnecessary risks in the months leading up to Brexit.

Despite being aware of my challenges, my apathetic bosses placed me on performance management measures and I was threatened with termination.

Rather than be terminated, I thought I could leave the company and look for a new job. However, the job market was difficult as news of private bank laying off their bankers shook the industry.

Throughout this difficult period, God repeatedly spoke to me through Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

I believed in Him and tried to keep my peace and focus on my life and family, especially my supportive wife and lovely daughter, Hannah who was growing up so fast.

God is good and faithful. First, He delivered some big ticket deals that helped me keep my job. Then in November, He delivered me out from this wilderness by opening the door to a new job that I had always dreamt of. He really knows the desires of my heart.

The amazing thing was the job market continued to be challenging and the role was placed by another brother in Christ, a headhunter based in Malaysia and whom I have yet to meet in person.

Finally, I am really excited to share that God has blessed us with another child. We had been praying for a sibling to accompany Hannah for the longest time. God's timing is perfect. This news came on the same week that I had resigned from my old job. If my wife were to be pregnant anytime earlier,  she would have to deal with morning sickness and worry about my job at the same time.

No matter how meticulous and thorough our planning, we can never outplan God. His plan is perfect and delivered at the perfect timing.

All glory and honour be to Him.

Experienced Manifold Blessings All Because Of Jesus

 

I have been saved since I was six and had been going to church regularly until my early 20s. Since young, I had the idea that I would be harshly judged by God for everything I’ve done in life and that I needed to be perfect to be a Christian. As a result, I put off going to church for many years because I wanted to get my life right first.

In February 2013, I left my marital home due to a dispute with my in-laws. My spouse and I had a good relationship, and we tried to keep the marriage going, but subsequently, he chose his parents over me and made the decision to proceed with a divorce instead.

In April 2013, my parents invited me to New Creation Church (NCC). Pastor Prince’s sermon was a refreshing change from what I thought I knew about the Word. I felt free, forgiven and I could see hope for the future. I made a decision to recommit my life to the Lord and I have seen His promises manifest manifold in my life.

In that same year, I started dating a fellow believer who was attending another church. He was a divorcee with a daughter. We enjoyed each other's company but it was not all smooth sailing; our relationship was often shaky and we never had marriage in sight for us.

However, we decided that we would both attend NCC together. In April 2014, I started serving in the children’s ministry Rock Kidz. I believe it is my calling as my teenage years were rebellious and difficult. I felt it is important to build a good foundation for a child than to mend a wayward teen or adult later.

Serving our Lord is one of the best decisions I have made in life. My boyfriend's daughter who did not want to attend Sunday school previously due to a bad experience, had also started attending Rock Kidz and enjoying it.

God has blessed me with more than the little time I have given Him. I received a glowing work appraisal for 2014 and was blessed with a five-month bonus — the highest I have ever received, and higher than the company average, along with a significant pay raise.

In 2015, my boyfriend and I decided to commit ourselves to come under God’s covenant for us — marriage. We got married in June 2015 and have been so blessed since.

God blessed my husband with a job offer that came with a 33 per cent increment. Despite our still trying financial circumstances, we purchased our first property in September 2015. In November 2015, I accepted a job offer with a 48 per cent increment. At this point, we wanted to have a baby but I did not have my period since August 2015.

In December 2015, at the referral of our General Practitioner, we went to see a gynaecologist and were told that I might have polycystic ovary syndrome and there was no ovulation. I rebuked this symptom, and started to apply the anointing oil, believing our Lord for a baby.

In early 2016, at one of our church services, Pastor Prince encouraged us to confess the Word in our prayer. I began confessing that there were no barren women in God’s kingdom, neither am I. The Bible says that we are to be fruitful and multiply, so shall my husband and I be.

In March 2016, my stepdaughter started asking for a sibling. I did not know how to reply her so one day, I told her to put her hand on my tummy and pray. She prayed out loud and we both said Amen.

A few weeks later, I tested positive on a pregnancy test kit. After our gynae check-up, we realised that the date of conception was just a day or two after her prayer!

I'm writing this in the delivery suite right now, and my full-term pregnancy has been smooth sailing, pain-free and symptom-free. Also, every single test result came back with a glowing praise report. Even as the machine is showing that I'm contracting every three minutes, I do not feel any pain and the nurses are surprised.

In fact, I was sent to the delivery suite after a routine check-up revealed that I was three centimetres dilated and having contractions. I was not surprised because my husband and I attended NCC's pre-natal seminar and were taught that the pain of childbirth is the curse of the law and because we have been redeemed from the curse through Jesus’ finished work on the cross, pregnancy can be enjoyable.

The contractions in the final hour were challenging but I'm happy to share that we delivered a beautiful and healthy baby boy. I hope my testimony brings glory to His name. All glory be to our Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

Marriage Restored And Family Blessed

 

In 2010, my relationship with my wife turned really bad after the birth of our second child. As young parents, we were not able to cope with two young children who were a year apart. Things got worse when we became stressed at work. We quarrelled frequently and had less time with each other. Our lives seemed to revolve around the children and work. We finally separated and engaged lawyers to end the relationship. My wife and children moved to stay with my in-laws.

At this darkest point in our lives, God divinely arranged for us to attend New Creation Church without each other’s knowledge. When I found out that my wife and children were attending the same church as me, I suggested fetching them to church every week.

Though things were still gloomy, both my wife and I chose to fix our eyes on Jesus as our only way to salvation. Weeks of hearing Pastor Prince's sermons and learning about what Jesus had done for us slowly set us free from stress and anger. We began to love each other again with Jesus in our midst.

By the grace of God, my wife and I eventually reconciled, and our relationship is now better than ever before. Our third child was born in 2014, and my wife found a new job which had better work-life balance. She was also promoted within two years and in the third year, she was transferred to the department of her choice where the work was easier to manage.

We bought a new home in 2015 which was within walking distance from our children’s primary school. In 2016, we realised our dream of visiting Israel and I was sponsored for my postgraduate studies, which was a lifelong dream of mine. Indeed, with Jesus, everything is possible!
